Clancy Terrill - Fishing Guide
I'm Clancy Terrill and I'll be your fishing guide! I have a lifetime of experience because my dad began my fishing experience at a very early age. 

I enjoy children because it's great to see them catch their first or their biggest fish.  They enjoy it so much that the experience will stay with them forever.  I know it did with me!

I'm a fireman and a retired 30 year paramedic, and have a family history of Fire, Police and EMS that goes way back.  You will be in good hands with me as your Highland Lakes fishing guide out on the boat.

I was featured on the PBS show, Texas Parks & Wildlife, and in the October, 2007 issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine.  It was a several page article on me and catfishing on Lake Buchanan.


Striped Bass
Clancy can help you catch great Striped Bass

I have over years of experience fishing here on the Highland Lakes in Central Texas and have boated numerous Stripers over 30-lbs and even bigger Catfish!  I really enjoy being a Highland Lakes Fishing Guide.


My Highland Lakes fishing guide service specializes in Striped Bass, Trophy Catfish and White Bass on Lake Buchanan and Inks Lake in the Highland Lakes of Central Texas just 60 minutes northwest of Austin and 90 minutes north of San Antonio.

For the inexperienced I will be assisting you with baiting, techniques and any other information that you need.  For experienced fishermen I will go through my basic introduction but leave as much to you as you would like.  I don't troll with downriggers.  I use native live bait (shad) caught fresh everyday.

Clancy's Fishing Boat

The boat I use with my fishing guide service is a pontoon boat with a 225 hp outboard motor.  It's a great fishing boat.  It has plenty of room and is easy to get around in for fishing.   Fishermen love this new boat.

I have all the latest electronics to find the fish.  I furnish all the fishing equipment and bait, along with the filleting of the catch after the trip.

- You can book a half day fishing trip and golf either in the morning or afternoon, and fish the other part of the day
- You can book a full day fishing trip and play golf the next day, a GREAT weekend trip for families, corporate events, or just to get away from either of those with your buddies.
