Guided Canoe Trips
A wilderness canoe trip is an exciting and adventurous vacation and to make the
most of your time in the woods and on the water it is best to take an
experienced guide. A guide adds so much to a trip it is almost
hard to put into words all the things he will add to your Boundary
Waters experience...especially the little things. Your guide will
help you navigate your way through the canoe country, take you to the
best campsites, help you set up camp, cook some delicious meals over the
fire, point out interesting things in the wilderness (often missed by
most travelers) and of course, for the anglers, put you on the fish!
Guided Fishing Trips:
Wilderness fishing, for many this is why we come to Ely and the Boundary Waters Canoe
Area - and with good reason. The Boundary Waters has some of the best fishing in
North America! The cool, clean water here is teeming with just right
as well as trophy size specimens. From surface busting Smallmouth to Northern Pike,
Lake Trout and the tastiest Walleye, the Boundary Waters is an anglers paradise. Now,
how do you get in, find the right lake, and get on that fishing hole? The best way -
With a Guide!
A guided canoe trip is the most "sure-fire" way to enjoy the wilderness
and improve your fishing success. Wake early to a steaming cup of
coffee, prepared by your guide, before heading out to a morning of
fishing. Take a break and have breakfast or, if it's lunch or dinner
time, enjoy one of our gourmet fish recipes. (Not only do you get the
hard to beat "fresh in the pan" fish fry but also
some of our other specialties such as Brown Sugar Baked Walleye or Fish Chowder.)
After getting your fill, you can hit the water for more angling, sit around the
campfire or, if it's early in the day, pack up and head to the next destination.
It's all up to you.
For many Boundary Waters vacationers, fishing is only half of the reason for visiting
this vast wilderness area. Adventure and exploration or rest and relaxation are what
many visitors are seeking. Well, not only does a guide show you where and how to fish,
he also enhances your overall wilderness experience. Your guide is there to help make
camp, cook delectable meals over the fire, reveal points of interest easily missed by
the passing canoeist, and provide insight to the dramatic history of the area. Along
the way you will learn many "tips and tricks" to use when you're out canoeing
and camping in the Northwoods. A guided trip is the best way to see and
experience this vast wilderness..
