Featured Guide: Bill McBurney

Brad and I had a wonderful mother/son bonding experience while fishing with Bill McBurney for striper bass on Lake Powell. After a wonderful dinner at the Lodge the night before, Brad and I rose early to meet Bill at the dock where we boarded his comfortable, safe boat. Bill took us out quite a ways into one of the lake’s channels and we immediately started casting for striper using 8 & 10 wt. flyrods. Bill was patient with me as I “practiced” getting the heavy line out to the fish. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is a joy to fish with. We caught some great fish that day, in spite of the dreadful Arizona sun. Bill was such a gentleman that he set up a chair with umbrella to keep the sun off me. Of course the guys joked around all day calling me “Georganne, the Fishing Diva”. I was in seventh heaven due to the combination of spending quality time with my eldest son in such a beautiful location and catching these powerful acrobatic fish on a flyrod. What a great day we had! It’s adventures like these, shared with your kids, that make memories to last a lifetime!

Bill McBurney, owner and operator of Ambassador Guide service, has the distinction of holding the first permit ever issued for the river portion of the Glen Canyon Recreation Area at Lee’s Ferry; therefore one can only imagine the wealth of experience he possesses fishing these waters. Lee’s Ferry is a premier tailwater fishery on the Colorado River in Northern Arizona, offering rainbow trout and rainbow hybrids typically measuring between 14 and 20” that can be seen in it’s crystal clear waters

Bill’s current specialty, however, is flyfishing for these stripers on Lake Powell. He is equally versed and equipped in conventional fishing gear and techniques, possessing over 27 years of experience in all types of fishing. Catch his t.v. show, Ambassador Outdoors which airs on the Sportsman’s Channel.

Ambassador Guide Service offers 26’ boats for your fishing comfort, as well as excellent, high quality equipment, personalized instruction, as well as flyrod rentals. A 4000’ paved landing strip is available nearby for those who wish to fly in.

Check out Bill’s website at for further information, fishing reports, pricing, etc. and/or sign up for his newsletter. Believe me, stripers on a flyrod are a thrill equal to saltwater flyfishing, yet we can do it right here in our own backyard!
