Captain John Endreson, owner and entrepreneur of Endreson’s Guide Service, is an accomplished fly and conventional tackle fisherman. At the early age of 8, fresh water fishing became an addiction in his life. John spent his teenage years fishing the lakes, rivers and streams in upstate Canton, New York. After graduating high school in 1996, John attended SUNY Morrisville where he studied Aquaculture and Aquatic Science.
In 1999 he began fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming a fishing guide when he acquired his NY State fishing guide license, #3345. Then in 2003 he obtained his Commercial Use Authorization Permit from the Park Services which allows him to guide commercially within the boundaries of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River. In 2004, John spent several years guiding for Lee Hartman’s Indian Springs Fly Fishing Camp in Lordville, NY. Recently in the spring of 2012, John acquired his US Coast Guard OUPV (6-Pack) Captain License. John also has many years of experience in the retail industry which has given him the advantage to be able to answer any questions his clients might have in regards to tackle, different destinations or multiple fishing situations.
Since 2008, John has volunteered his time in the Annual One Bug Fundraiser Tournament that is held in Hancock, New York. He was awarded the One Bug Top Guide Award in 2010, took 3rd placed in 2011 and 4th in 2012. John has also been recognized in the NJ Monthly, the Newark Star Ledger and on NJ Television in reference to various trout fishing topics.
When not guiding, John has an eye for detail which makes him an accomplished fly tier. John also spends a great deal of time scouting, researching and fishing new potential locations so he can ensure that his clients will have individual success.
Captain John is an energetic and enthusiastic guide who has the willingness to take his time to share his own fishing tactics, techniques and know-how’s as well as his knowledge of the river so he can provide his clients with the finest and most productive fishing experience. Whether his clients are an experienced or beginner angler or even a child, Captain John will make sure your fishing experience is “TOP NOTCH” and will always try to put his clients on fish.
