“Ozarks Stream Guides was founded in 2017 by Ryan Walker and Chris Ritchie. Ryan and Chris have spent most of their lives running the rivers and hills that make up the their Ozarks home.
OSG’s mission is to share the beauty of an Ozarks River with their clients and to ensure a great day on the water. We use only the best gear, from Wilderness Systems, Jackson Kayak, Aqua Bound, Bending Branches, Lews and more. We focus on our clients needs, spending time educating on the ‘how’s and whys” of River Fishing and Kayaking. Our goal is that you leave a better angler.
We guide on waters in the Southwest and Mid-eastern Ozarks, in Missouri and Arkansas. This gives us a wide variety of trip options to accommodate any customers desires.
All of our trips includes Kayaks, gear, tackle and lunch.
Ryan Walker is ProStaff for Wilderness Systems Fishing Kayaks, Team Lews, Woodard Rods, AquaBound Paddles and Ozark Mountain Trading Company.
Chris Ritchie is ProStaff for Jackson Kayak, Team Lews, Stohlquist Waterware, Bending Branches Paddles and Ozark Mountain Trading Company. “
“When you talk about a total package, OSG is the real deal. Educated, professional anglers who genuinely care about the streams they fish! If you want to get on fish, get with these guys! Top Notch!”
“Ryan Walker loves smallmouth bass. He knows where they are and how to catch them. Although I have fished for 50 years, I had never been in a kayak and had never caught a smallmouth bass before Ryan put together a trip for my son, my brother and me….but his knowledge of the steams and his ability to help you catch fish are what really set him apart. You can tell he really cares about you and your river experience..”
“My fiancée and I took a trip with Chris down the river fishing for smallies and I'll tell you it was the best guided trip we've been on yet! he put us on good fishing spots and set us up with the right stuff to get the fish to bite!”
