You’ll find our guides to be both knowledgeable and friendly with a focus on education and catching something memorable. Either bring your obsessions or leave for home with them: fishing is all about details, but is a total blast! Choose a full or half-day experience, fishing for Trout, Bass, Northern Pike, Carp and anything else that swims!

Whether wading, casting from a boat or tossing a line in from the edge of the water, this might be the most fun you can have. The chances are high that you’ll catch something, and there’s nothing quite like the thrill of landing your fish in a net. Of course, after the picture, we throw it right back! This trip is perfect for family getaway, unique date, bachelor/bachelorette party or exciting group outing.

Fishing trips depend on the time of the year and the recent weather patterns. Our expert guides are 
skilled at determining the best fishing place possible for the current conditions.

Fly fishing is an angling method that uses a light-weight lure—called an artificial fly—to catch fish. The fly is cast using a fly rod, reel, and specialized weighted line. The light weight requires casting techniques significantly different from other forms of casting.

If it’s the Spring, Summer or Fall, use layers to keep your body comfortable. If the winter, we’ll

be using the same gear, but the same principle applies. Wear comfortable pants and a top that you can move easily in. Use a non-cotton base layer, preferably lightweight (cool days) or a layer made for whisking sweat and heat away Wear eye protection and use Croakies to secure them. All wallets and phones get put into dry storage. Call for recommendations, if needed. Remember that wind adds windchill. Check this chart to estimate and dress accordingly: Wind Chill Calculator (noaa.gov)
