Kayak Fishing Guide

Escape to the Great Northwoods of Wisconsin!

WELCOME

We are glad you found us. Northern Wisconsin Kayak Fishing is a Division of Riley’s Outdoor Consulting LLC. We are fully licensed and insured.  I along with my wife Jane operate the business.  I am the full-time professional guide and Jane keeps things rolling behind the scenes.  Recently Jane retired from the United States Air Force which enabled us to fulfill our dream of spending summers in Wisconsin’s Northwoods.  When it comes to guided kayak fishing in the lakes in and around Vilas and Oneida, counties we are pioneers!  I am no stranger to kayak fishing.  I have been kayak fishing from Florida’s Gulf Coast all the way to Alaska since 2008.

Homebase

Northern Wisconsin Kayak Fishing is located in beautiful Boulder Junction during the month’s of May to October. Because of the areas countless lakes that are teeming with several species of tackle busting fish we can offer you a fishing adventure second to none. All of our trips are fully guided and include all necessary gear and professional instruction.

I am looking forward to getting you hooked on kayak fishing!

 

 

 

WHY KAYAK FISHING?

CATCH FISH!

 

We are able to access lakes that are not accessible to larger boats.  We get into areas that are rarely fished!

 

 

 

Family Friendly

 

One child under 18 fishes free with a paying adult.  We believe in getting kids outdoors, away from all the distractions of the modern world.  Be prepared they often out-fish the adults.

Kayaks are Stealthy

 

Wildlife, including fish, pay us little attention.  We can sneak into prime fishing areas undetected.

Once you try this style of fishing you will be hooked!

Peace & Serenity

 

Paddle power gives us the best opportunity to enjoy the sites, sounds, and smells of nature.

Don’t be surprised if we are the only vessel on the water!

 

Exercise

 

Our people-powered kayak fishing adventures are one of the best workouts you will enjoy doing!  Depending on how much you want to explore will determine how much we paddle.  We cater to each guest’s abilities.

Affordability

 

Compare the cost of one of our fully-guided and outfitted kayak fishing adventures and you will quickly see the value.  Normally much less than a guided boat-based trip and not much more than a kayak rental.

 

SPECIES WE TARGET

Where We Fish

Northern Wisconsin Kayak Fishing Adventures is based out of Boulder Junction, in Vilas County, Wisconsin. We will focus our fishing efforts in Vilas and Oneida county. There are literally dozens of quality fishing lakes in these two counties.  

 

Our goal will be to focus on some of the more “ off the beaten path” bodies of water. Several of these lakes rarely see much boat traffic.  Most are under two hundred acres in size.  For a special day we can arrange a trip to a no-wake or no motor lake. No only are these lakes peaceful, they normally are very productive.

 

For those that want an all day adventure we can fish multiple lakes or head over to the Turtle- Flambeau Flowage.  This is a true multi-species trip.  We will be looking to catch as many species as possible. This is as close to the BWCA as possible in Wisconsin.  Part of the Flowage is a no motor zone.  That is where we will concentrate our efforts.

 

For those that like to paddle and fish on a river we are blessed to have the Manitowish River. The river is scenic and loaded with fish.  I have specialized kayaks for the river.
