About Us

NOLA Guides is a full-service Fly Fishing Guide Service providing the finest in equipment, experience, knowledge, communications, and quality. Our New Orleans Fly Fishing Guides will offer you the best opportunities for sight fishing redfish in the shallow marsh ponds.


NOLA Guides is made up of 2 guides: Al Keller and Gregg Arnold. The experience (including time on the water guiding) is equal to 50+ years. This is very important for the traveling angler who wants to fish, not just take a boat ride.

We concentrate all of our energy & efforts on the marshes all over south Louisiana, including the east & west side of the Mississippi River and Venice. We also fish some of the outer islands, weather permitting.

If you want to have a real trophy redfish experience, or just catch a whole lot of 10 pounders we can hook you up.

If you have a large party, we have 5 more accomplished guides with flats or bay boats that we work with on a daily basis.

We are long time Louisiana residents who have fished all over the Gulf Coast and beyond and know that the best redfishing anywhere is right here.

All our skiffs are outfitted with casting platforms & poling platforms for fly fishing. We can also accommodate anglers with conventional gear requirements, as some of our associate guides have bay boats for trout fishing, etc.

When fishing with a guide in Louisiana you must purchase a trip ticket that is good for 3 days. This is very easy – just call 888-765-2602.

Have a paper and pen ready along with a credit card and driver’s license. It will cost you about $10.00 plus a credit card convenience fee.

Please e-mail: fishalkeller@gmail.com to book a charter. We accept cash, credit cards, and checks.
