Captain MICHAEL PITTMAN
Just southeast of New Orleans, in some of the richest marshlands in North America, is a world-class fishery.
Being an Orvis guide in Louisiana takes experience, skill, and most of all, passion. As a Louisiana native and life-long fisherman, I’ve spent the last 15+ years guiding professionally. South Louisiana (SoLa) Guide Service grew from a love for fishing Louisiana’s waters.
I specialize in saltwater fly fishing from Hopedale to Delacroix (the west side of the Mississippi).
Sight fishing in the Louisiana marsh is as much hunting as it is fishing; as you search for redfish, black drum, sheepshead, trout, and jack crevalle.
Being a full-time, year-round fly fishing guide allows me to stay in tune with the subtle changes in our fishery. Whether we’re casting a fly to a tailing Louisiana redfish or stalking the marsh for finicky sheepshead, one of the benefits of Louisiana fishing is our never-ending season. There is always something to catch in the marsh.
However, while saltwater fly fishing is the primary goal on guided trips, I also provide light, conventional tackle for those tough days.
I welcome fishermen of all ages and skill levels, from first-timers to seasoned anglers.
