Fishing has always been apart of my life. I am the only professional female guide on the Little Red River.  I am a member of Semper Fly Rod Pro Team.  I am a Trout Unlimited Chapter 722 Board Member, where I serve as the Women’s Initiative Chair. Encouraging more women to get out and fly fish!

Guided services are for wading and drift fishing from a 21ft. Shawnee River Boat equipped with a 25 horsepower Mercury Motor and Sawyer Oars.

I provide three ways to fish for trout; The Trout Magnet System, Spin Jigging, and Fly Fishing.

All Equipment is provided on all guide trips.  Lunch is provided on full day guide trips. You just show up ready to have fun and make memories!

The day went by really fast. Kim did an awesome job at teaching us how to cast and throw the line into the river. The day went by fast and the scenery was amazing.

Cristie R. Campo

Catching a fish and then being able to release it was quite the experience. I even got to kiss it! Kim did a great job at coaching me as to what to do.

It was a really nice day on the river. We were catching a lot of fish,  when Kim my guide said hey Paul I got some new pick jigs, Would you mind trying one out for me in “Brown Town”.  I said sure thing, and as we arrived at “Brown Town”, Kim tells me exactly where to throw it and let it fall down the rocks and sure enough a big ole brown got hold of that jig and the fight was on! It was certainly the largest trout I have ever landed, a 21 inch brown on a 4lb test line and 2lb leader.  Awesome Guide!  Ryder’s Run ROCKS

Why choose me?


I know the river like the back of my hand. I love the area and all of its inhabitants. I love to observe nature and be part of it.



I have a great sense of humor and I have quite a few stories to tell that will make you laugh, guaranteed.

Love to teach

I’m a natural teacher and love to educate on the anatomy of fly fishing, nature, and life.

Patient with all ages

I’m sensitive to everyone’s learning style but especially with those who are shy about trying something new.

Women friendly

Women can definitely fly fish and learn something new. It is fun and very empowering.

Children Friendly

As a grandma, I love to be around children and teach them all I know about fly fishing and casting.
