What to Expect/Timeline
Expect to be walking and wading a small river all day. I will use two local southern Wisconsin rivers and the size ranges from a one lane road to approximately three lanes to give you some perspective. You will be on your feet and actively moving through the river. Plan on being in the water most of the day and spots can get as high as waist deep. We will fish streamers, crawfish patterns, and topwater frogs depending on the time of year and what the fish are feeding on. George will choose a location that is a best match for your physical ability, fly fishing experience, and overall goals for the day.
Here is a general timeframe, however, times are subject to change depending on location, season, and conditions.
- 7:30 Arrival, meet/greet, and gear up
- 8:00 Begin fishing
- 12:00 Noon 30 minute Lunch Break
- 4:00 End fishing and walk back to the put-in or shuttle
About the Trip
George and the client(s) will meet at an arranged location depending on the river and section we will be fishing. We can meet for breakfast or at the river. The two rivers we will fish are located in southern Wisconsin and provide miles of high quality smallmouth bass and Northern Pike water. No matter what river or section of river, expect to catch plenty of bass and the opportunity for a 20”+ trophy. Both rivers also contain high numbers of Pike and we can also target those with similar flies and a bite wire tippet for these toothy critters. Northern Pike up to 40” live in these rivers and can provide an amazing strike and fight on a fly rod.
