Roger Stegall

Roger Stegall is an accomplished fisherman in every aspect of the word. He has over 30 years of guiding and tournament experience on the FLW and B.A.S.S. trails.

Features in BassMaster, Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, Bassin, FLW Outdoors and numerous other national publications document that Roger is not just a local who can catch fish but he is a listened to and respected professional. Those magazine articles are the result of years of hard work and fishing know-how. His tournament accomplishments are numerous including:

2012 WBFL Angler of the Year

 Heaviest 5 fish Smallmouth limit in Red Man history 27.5 pounds!

Any day on the water with Roger is enjoyable but that does not mean it is slothful. He puts every effort into the job of finding you fish to catch. His clients very often catch numbers of good fish but Roger is most celebrated for having numerous smallmouth over 7 pounds to his guiding credit. (Check out the most recent ones in the Photo Gallery.)

I can't guarantee that you will catch a bunch of fish, nor can I assure you of a big smallie. However, I can promise you that you will enjoy your day with Roger and that the odds of you sticking the fish of your dreams is increased dramatically. If you like to fish, you will love Pickwick and the area lakes. And, when you think of Pickwick, you must think of Roger Stegall.
