Tom Carlson | Trout Guide
My love and passion for fishing started at the very young age of 2. By the age of 11, I was fly fishing already. When I was a little older I lived within walking distance from a great trout and smallmouth stream. That experience of growing up and fishing on the river taught me vast amounts about fly fishing.

Kip Vieth | Drift Boat Guide Smallmouth Bass
My passion for the outdoors is something I love to share. I have spent the last 20+ years pursuing both fin and fowl. It can be the strike of a bass, the beauty of a river, or the flush of a Ruffed Grouse in the dazzling autumn woods. Sharing with people the gift of the outdoors is something I truly cherish. It is always my goal to pass on some of those experiences and skills to my clients. More>
"Big Pike Mike" Thomas | Trout, Muskie, Northern, Walleye, Sturgeon, Catfish Guide
I'll guide you in comfort from my 18" Alumacraft Tournament Pro, powered by a fast, quiet and reliable Yamaha Vmax 150HPDI outboard, my Yamaha T8 Kicker motor handles the trolling duties. If the musky bite is off, we can also chase walleye and smallmouth bass for a full St Croix mixed bag. If there's a new technique or species on the river you'd like to chase, we'll discuss it and customize a trip of your liking. More >
John Mowery | Trout Guide
My experience as a trout guide has made me a good listener, patient teacher and fine stream side chef. Pierce County Wisconsin is home to some of the finest spring creeks teeming with brown trout in North America. My goal is always to improve your knowledge and skill base, not to make you dependent on guides for fishing success. Of course, relaxation and fun are the ultimate outcome! More>
Matt Shipp | Trout Tenkara
I consider myself very fortunate to have grown up here in River Falls and I am proud to say that I am a second generation fly fisherman on these waters. My father was an avid fisherman and I have been fishing the Kinni, Trimbelle, Rush and Willow River since I was a boy.
I have caught trout by just about every means possible. However, my world changed when I walked into Kinni Creek’s fly shop and discovered tenkara.
Tenkara focuses on the presentation of a fly instead of constantly changing flies until you find a pattern that works. Instead of carrying a hundred different fly patterns I might use only one or two flies while on the water. Since the amount of gear needed to fish tenkara is minimal I can usually carry everything I need in a small bag or my pockets. Later in the year when the weather is warm I don’t even need waders. I believe that fishing tenkara allows us to have the most intimate connection with a stream. The experience can be very peaceful as you slowly and quietly stalk trout like a Blue Heron.
Learning to cast a tenkara rod is much easier than learning to cast a traditional fly rod. In addition to guiding tenkara, I also tie traditional tenkara flies and have developed several patterns that work well on our local waters.
I would love to get you out on the river in an area where I know there are fish and help you discover tenkara for yourself. Once you catch a trout on a tenkara rod you may never want to fish any other way again.
"I highly recommend a Guided Tenkara outing with Matt Shipp. I had a fantastic time. Matt has a wealth of Tenkara, Trout and Stream knowledge, and he was a great fishing companion. Matt really knows Tenkara rods and techniques and can share a lot of Tenkara knowledge that he’s received in person from some of the best Tenkara anglers in the country. Matt also knows the waters around River Falls, WI like the back of his hand. His advise helped me catch Trout on two rivers, and land two of the bigger Brown’s that I’ve ever caught."

A day on the water with me will include a study of the habitat and insect life that is part of the life cycle of our trout as well as an opportunity to see and fish some of the most beautiful water in the midwest. I will assist you in your endeavor to catch trout and enjoy our natural beauty at whatever level of development you are at, beginner to expert. Plan on a pleasant day of sharing in the rich bounty of our natural setting.
Mike Dvorak | Trout
I grew up on the banks of the Beaverhead and Big Hole rivers just outside Dillon, Montana. I hiked many miles of rivers and climbed thousands of feet of high mountain trails to named and un-named alpine lakes - all in search of trout. In 1992, I moved to Minneapolis to study photography and was introduced to the streams of western Wisconsin.
For 22 years, I've been fly fishing the Kinnickinnic river and surrounding streams. It's an amazing fishery with great May fly and Caddis hatches in the spring and early summer, that graduate into early morning Tricos in July and great terrestrial and streamer fishing into the late summer and early fall.
I've pursued trout around the world, from Patagonia to Alaska, and I still love to explore western rivers and high mountain lakes. But this is my home water now, and I consider it some of the best.
On and off the river, I am an award winning and nationally published working photographer. So, be assured that when you land a nice trout, I'll be there with my net AND my camera.
No matter your skill level, I'll make sure to provide you with a memorable day on the water and a killer cup of streamside coffee. See you on the river.
Ike Miller | Driftboat Guide: Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Musky, Walleye.
I’m Ike Miller and I guide fishing in Northwest Wisconsin. I grew up in Southwest Virginia, chasing all sorts of critters with a fly rod and spin gear. Fishing is my passion, my addiction if you will and guiding is the most fulfilling avenue I’ve found to satisfy that addiction. I guided for 5 years on Colorado’s toughest canyon river The Black Canyon of the Gunnison there I gained valuable rowing, boating, and fishing skills. Now, living next to one of the nations premier smallmouth, musky, and walleye fisheries I’ve set out to provide my clients with a unique experience chasing Wisconsin’s top freshwater predators on the fly and light tackle.
We offer trips for both fly fisherman and light tackle enthusiasts. Trips are not just geared towards catching fish, but also providing quality instruction to all levels of anglers. We also strive to provide something unique to our clients. And, one aspect that stands out from the rest is our means of fishing the river. A jet outboard powered jon boat will take you up river in merely a few inches of water! No need for a shuttle, then float back down river while I row the boat quietly in pursuit of smallmouth bass, northern pike, musky, walleye, and various other species of fish willing to take a fly or piece of hardware! My boat is very roomy, very stable to stand, and cast from on it’s custom cedar floor.
A grand slam of a pike, muskie, smallmouth bass, and walleye are all possible in one day of fly fishing the St. Croix River!
