My name is Charlie J.Haviland Jr.                                                                                                                                                                  NYS licensed guide and proprietor of THE BACKWATER GUIDE SERVICE.  I  have had this guide service for over 29 years.  I personally guarantee a great time and learning experience for all.  I indulge great amounts of time on the water and in the woods learning and teaching about the habitat as well as the prey that we pursue.

At THE BACKWATER GUIDE SERVICE, we use all of the latest equipment, techniques and lures on the market today.

.  With an extensive background in competitive bass fishing, you will have an opportunity to learn the tactics that the pros utilize everyday on the water and be able to take this information to your favorite honeyhole back home.

  We will use many different bodies of water in New York state including but not limited to: The Hudson River out of Schuylerville, NY, Saratoga Lake, Long Lake, Lincoln Pond, Schroon Lake and many other small northern lakes where the LARGEMOUTH / SMALLMOUTH BASS and NORTHERN PIKE fishing are out of this world.

 I utilize many farms and blinds for WATERFOWL HUNTING most of which we have exclusive permission to be on to provide our clients the best chance for a great day of hunting.

  We use an open boat for many of our guide trips and there is plenty of room to enjoy your day. There is an RTIC COOLER with ice on board for your use.

  Your guide is trained in CPR, BASIC FIRST AID and WATER SAFETY.  All equipment you will need for the fishing trips are provided.

PLEASE CONTACT US AT :  [email protected]   OR CALL US AT (518)538-8505 to book your upcoming trip. 

Thanks again,

Charlie J. Haviland Jr.
