Lake Lewisville Fishing Guide – Steve Schiele


I have been a Lake Lewisville fishing guide for over 31 years, and I have fished Lake Lewisville for over 40 years.  No other Lake Lewisville fishing guides have the experience and knowledge that I do.  I have fished Lake Lewisville in almost every condition imaginable. If you want the best and most knowledgeable fishing guide for your Lewisville Texas fishing trip call me.


I use artificial lures because they produce larger and more frequent fish.  Artificial lures give you more consistent fishing fun and put fish in the live wells a whole lot faster.  Using live bait is the closest thing you can do to not fishing, you drop your bait and just sit and wait for a bite.  The fun of fishing is learning how to trick the fish, you don’t learn this with live bait.  Most people that have been on my guided fishing trips have caught the largest fish of their life.  I believe artificial baits make for a more productive fishing trip.


I am a full time Lake Lewisville fishing guide, fishing 7 day a week, I am not just a weekend guide.  I know what is taking place on Lake Lewisville every day, and I know where the fish are holding because I simply spend more time on the lake.  I offer year round guided fishing trips on Lake Lewisville, no matter the time of year there is always some type of fish biting.

TRophy Fish

Some Lake Lewisville fishing guides charge extra for trophy tours, I only run one type of tour, and it's always for trophy fish.  When I fish for Blue Catfish we are always fishing for the largest fish possible.  I don’t charge extra for trophy tours like some guides.  No matter what type of fish we are targeting we are always fishing for the largest trophy fish possible.  If you're looking for a Lake Lewisville Catfish Guide, I produce trophy sized fish every year.

What's Biting?

Most fish will bite year round, in Lake Lewisville.  It helps to choose a Lake Lewisville fishing guide that is experienced with fishing the lake in all weather conditions.  Spawning and weather patterns can cause certain fish species to feed aggressively, suspend or make runs to spawning grounds. I offer year round Lake Lewisville fishing guide services.

Winter Fishing - December, January, February

Blue Catfish, Sand Bass, Hybrid Striped Bass, Crappie are all feeding aggressively.  Late Winter and early spring are great for trophy Blue Catfish.  Calm Winter days are a great time to fish for Crappie.  I am an excellent winter Lake Lewisville fishing guide.  I can put you on lots of fish during the winter months.

Spring Fishing - March, April, May

Sand Bass, Crappie and Hybrids make runs to the spawning grounds, and can be caught easily before the spawn and post spawn.  Spring fishing can be some of the best fishing on the lake.

Summer Fishing - June, July, August

Sand Bass and Hyrbrid Striped Bass school up.  They feed aggressively on Minnows, Shad, and Flies on the surface.  Large Mouths are excellent on warm mornings and evenings and can be caught through out the day.

Fall Fishing - September, October, November

Summer fishing patterns continue until cold weather sets in.  When the temperature starts to drop large Blue Catfish start to feed aggressively.
