Sam is simply a professional guide; timely, prepared, personable and knowledgeable. Even in tough conditions he made sure to show us all he could and get us every opportunity for a fish. Looking forward to visiting again.Read more
I've followed BLUE RIDGE MUSKY for over a year on multiple media outlets. The passion for the sport and protection of the resource is always at the top of thier list. Top of the line gear is also a key factor too protect the fish. 100 percent professional attitude with the ability to also have fun with the clients is probably my favorite part. I learned alot about the local wildlife and was lucky enough to see some of it in action. Fishing techniques and care for the fish was very educational too. With an experienced Captain the Rock Proof Boat ride was a big thrill too. Hope to see yall soon and good luck everyday you hit the river.💚Read more
Great experience ! We had a great time hunting musky with Captain Sam Scott. He was very professional and knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer all of our questions. He definitely knows where the big ones are. I will definitely book again in the future !Read more
A good guide will put you on fish, which he did. But in addition, I was impressed with the information Sam was able to provide regarding the of the ecology of the river, biology of our target species (Musky) and overall knowledge of the environment he works in every day. Book a trip with Sam and you'll go home slimier and smarter! Thanks for a most memorable day!Read more

Excellent experience. Jamie put us on 7 muskies and we caught 2, one 34 and one 36. Missed the big one. Very knowledgable. You won't be disappointed.Read more
