BWCA Fishing Trips
Fishing the Boundary Waters will make you feel like a pro no matter what your level of fishing experience. Everybody can catch fish here. The fact that these waters must be fished by canoe means that for all intents and purposes, the fishing is catch and release. Sure fisherman may keep a few for the frying pan, but practically speaking it would be very difficult to refrigerate fish all week with the idea of taking them home. Additionally, who wants to carry fish across the portages all week. These facts of canoe fishing lead to the two main characteristics of Boundary Waters Fishing:
1. There are a lot of fish.
2. There are a lot of big fish.
There are basically two ways to approach fishing in the Boundary Waters. First, you can do it on your own. We have everything you need to do great fishing on your own. Advice, tackle, and live bait are all available at our base. Second, you could take advantage of one of several guided trip options.
