About Your Guide Tommy Thompson

Capt'n Tommy Thompson, the friendly face behind Rock Creek Striper Guide Service.

Welcome! I’m Capt’n Tommy Thompson, the proud owner and operator of Rock Creek Striper Guide Service, your ultimate destination for an exhilarating live bait striper fishing experience on Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia.

With over 35 years of fishing experience under my belt, I have mastered the art and science of fishing in the sparkling waters of Smith Mountain Lake. Striper fishing is more than a pastime for me – it’s my passion and profession. Over the years, I have built a solid reputation as a go-to guide for memorable striper fishing experiences in our area.

Apart from the exciting day fishing, I also possess extensive knowledge and expertise in night fishing. The calm, serene nights at Smith Mountain Lake hold unique experiences for night anglers. Guiding you under the starry skies, I’ll help you navigate the waters in search of the perfect catch.

As an ardent supporter of sustainable fishing practices, while you’re welcome to catch your limit and keep the fish, I strongly encourage catch, photo, and release fishing. This approach helps to preserve our excellent fishery and ensures that future generations will also enjoy the thrill of the catch. Moreover, it allows us to continue fishing beyond just catching the limit, extending the fun and satisfaction that comes from reeling in these incredible creatures.

Your trust in my expertise and guidance is something I greatly appreciate. Thank you for considering Rock Creek Striper Guide Service for your next guided fishing trip. I am committed to delivering an unparalleled fishing experience that you will cherish for years to come. Feel free to reach out to me at (304-928-7653) for any inquiries, bookings, or fishing discussions.

I look forward to embarking on an unforgettable fishing adventure with you at Smith Mountain Lake.
