Between the Rivers Fishing Guide Service is owned by Jim Doom who grew up fishing and is a fixture on the Tennessee and Ohio Rivers. Almost four decades of experience ensure everyone that books a day of angling is getting the best opportunity to have an exciting day fighting a variety of fish. We cast a line for any kind of fish that will bite but specialize in the Striper, Catfish and Smallmouth Bass in the Cumberland, Tennessee and Ohio rivers. The limit on Striper is five on the Tennessee River as opposed to two on Lake Cumberland, so that just means more fish to take home. Most of the striper are 5 to 20 lbs., but 8 to 12lbs. are most common. Catfish in the 20's are fairly common and a good number of Smallmouth Bass are easily caught. Our main objective is for our clients to catch some kind of fish when we are on the water, so we do everything possible to make that happen. We use a 20 ft Triton boat with a 90 hp Suzuki engine. All fishing equipment is supplied, so there is no need to worry about renting or purchasing poles or tackle. However, the Game and Fish department require all fishermen over the age of 15 to have a fishing license which run approximately $10. Most of the fishing is done within 20 minutes of the meeting place so there is more time fishing instead of boat riding. There is no bad time of year to fish and some of our best days have been in the winter months. Join us today and create some great memories having a great time fishing!
