Phoenix Guide Derek Rivchin

Lo Water Guide Service welcomes you to Phoenix, a calm and pristine angling destination in Arizona where you can choose from a wide range of fishing spots. Owned and operated by, Derek Rivchin, a Phoenician native that grew up fishing the golf course ponds and lakes. Ive learned the local water through years of fishing it and have developed techniques that are hard to forget.

Depending on what kind of fishing trip you choose, you'll have a chance to step aboard his 16’ skiff aluminum 2022 Grizzly Tracker powered by a 2019 Mercury 4- stroke engine. This boat was designed for navigating Arizona’s waters and flats. Up to 2 passengers can fish aboard this boat. Or navigating the hundreds of miles of prime carp canals. We have just the trip for even the biggest purists.

You’ll be fly fishing for some of the most sought-after species you can find on your escapade such as Carp, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Gila trout and Rainbow Trout. Children and anglers of all skill levels are welcome to join in on the fun. 

The captain will supply you with everything you’ll need for the trip, including rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. All you have to do is to secure your fishing license. You can also bring some of your favorite food and drinks that will keep you energized throughout your trip.

Whether you are out to set a new personal record or just casting your first line, don’t miss out on this spectacular fishing with Lo Water Guide Service!
