Join us on the Southwest Wisconsin spring creeks in pursuit of wild brown trout on a fly. Lots of fish, prolific insect hatches, moderate current, and open casting space make this the best classroom for trout fishing. Novice anglers will learn new skills, and advanced anglers can hone existing skills in both nymph and dry fly fishing.

Join us on the Wisconsin River for a unique float trip for feisty smallmouth bass. This fast and furious action peaks when other fisheries are less productive due to mid-summer heat. We float the river in a Wenona Spirit II canoe that takes us to mid-river islands inaccessible to the wading angler. It’s a wilderness setting ½ hour from Madison, WI.
