Intro to Steelhead Trip: April 14-17, 2022

Come learn how to fly fish for steelhead on the famous Brule River! The Brule is known as the "River of Presidents", and has a rich angling history. This premier trout fishery stretches for 46 miles through beautiful forests, and boasts some of the best wild steelhead fishing in the area.  BMFS, Namebini, and the Superior Fly Angler are teaming up to offer an Intro to Steelhead Trip! Our trip is timed perfectly for the spring steelhead migration. These lake-run fish grow to impressive sizes, are beautifully colored, and fight extremely hard! We’ll be staying in a gorgeous modern log cabin right along the river at “Box Car Hole.” Surrounded by northern forests and steps from amazing fishing off the back porch. Our guide team will prepare delicious home cooked meals that will be sure to keep you warm and full while on the water. Included are two full days of instructional fishing time with experienced Brule River guides.

Intro to Muskies: October 7-9, 2022

There's monsters out there, and we want to teach you how to catch them! The musky, aka, "the fish of 10,000 casts," are toothy predators that routinely grow over 40 inches long. This bucket list species can be difficult to fish for, so we want to provide an opportunity for you aspiring muskie fly anglers to get an in-depth understanding of the musky and the techniques required to catch them on the fly. You’ll have a good chance of meeting their aggressive cousin, the northern pike, as well. Two full days of floating on the upper wild and scenic St. Croix River, which is one of the best muskie waters in the region. Lodging in a guest house cabin in St. Croix State Park, which is one of Minnesota’s largest state parks and is steeped in history and scenery. Our guides will make hearty home made meals which will keep you fueled up for the muskie grind. You’ll arrive Thursday night, spend all day Friday and Saturday floating on the St. Croix River, and head home Sunday. $950/person. $200 deposit due at time of booking.

 

Iowa Trip: November 4-6, 2022

Explore this overlooked corner of the Driftless region with our guides! Excellent trout fishing, year-round fishing season, and amazing scenery without the crowds are what you can expect from fishing in Iowa. We’ll be staying and fishing around Highlandville Iowa, which is a small village nestled in a picturesque valley surrounded by highwooded bluffs. Our charming log cabin is just a stone’s throw from North Bear Creek, which flows through the middle of the valley and is full of nice sized brook, brown, and rainbow trout. We will be there in prime streamer fishing time, for the best opportunity at catching the largest trout. We'll likely also see some hatches and have consistently good nymph fishing. You will arrive Friday afternoon, the fish all day Saturday on the streams around Highlandville. Fish again Sunday morning right in the valley, then head home Sunday afternoon.
