Welcome To L.D. Guide Service

The Susquehanna River is known for being one of the best smallmouth fisheries in the United States and the North Branch of the river is the best of the best.The fishing, scenery, and wildlife is second to none. It's common for us to to see bald eagles, great blue heron,ducks, geese, song and shore birds along with deer, raccoon, mink, beaver and the occasional fox, bear, and river otter.
