Anglers can choose to fly fish, use traditional spinning gear or both.  These trips are available in 1/2 day, 3/4 day and full day increments.  We provide all necessary gear (both fly and spin) on all of our trips as well as lunch on full days and drinks and snacks on 1/2 and 3/4 day trips. (lunch can be added on to any trip upon request for a minimal fee.)

Anglers will also have the opportunity to catch plenty of other species of fish on these trips. In addition to Smallmouth, Rainbow and Brown trout, Red Eye Bass, Largemouth, Spotted Bass, Walleye, and Perch are often brought to the net.  There are even rumors that Muskie roam these waters.
