Canoeing & Kayaking
- Hayward, Wisconsin
Chippewa River and
Teal River Canoe, Kayak, and Fishing Trips
A very affordable outdoor experience for
one or the whole family. Enjoy a wilderness fishing
outing or just paddle scenic water that's off the beaten
path. No power boats, crowds, or noise, just you and
the wildlife you will see on the trip, and of course
good fishing if you want. Over night trips are available
as well. We have trips available through the summer
A great northwoods
If you want to get away from it all and
experience the wilderness we offer serveral options
for you paddling or fishing the headwaters of the Chippewa
river and remote lakes in the Chequamegon National Forest
- We have Canoe and kayak trips on the West Fork of
the Chippewa river and the Teal river flowage winding
through the beautiful wilderness of the Chequamegon
National Forest. We offer shuttle service and drop
off at several points up stream on the Chippewa river
or paddle and fish the Teal river flowage.
- You can paddle upstream or explore miles of shoreline
on Moose lake on your own.
- We also offer fully guided fishing trips on the
river or small remote lakes by canoe or kayak for
from 2 people to groups. A great way for the whole
family to experience the wilderness and with an experienced
guide along the fishing is pretty good too.
- Fully guided fly fishing trips are available for
musky and smallmouth bass
The river above Moose Lake has a few rapids, but nothing
you could really call whitewater so it's ideal for less
experienced paddlers, family outings, and for fishing
or just enjoying a day on the river. From these drop
off points you canoe down stream at your leisure with
your vehicle waiting for you where the Chippewa enters
Our No Rush
Our trips are great for fishing because there
is no rush to get to a pickup point! Once we put you
in you have the rest of the day to fish, explore, and
have fun. Your vehicle will be waiting for you when
you at the end of the trip.
On our river trips above Moose Lake there's no rush
to be at a pickup point at a predetermined time, how
fast you go is totally up to you. This gives you more
time to explore, enjoy natures beauty, have a shore
lunch, do some fishing, or whatever. There's plenty
to see and great fishing for Musky, Smallmouth Bass,
On the Teal river we put you in at the dam and you
can paddle up into Teal lake or into Lost land lake.
This trip offers great fishing for musky, northern pike,
bass, panfish in the flowage and even walleye if you
paddle up into Teal lake. There is no rapids or current
in the Teal river flowage to battle, just an easy paddle
up to Teal lake.
If you choose one of our fully guided trips it includes
canoes or kayaks and your guide will accompany you to
assist and instruct. From your guide you will learn
more about canoeing and kayaking as well as nature and
fishing. With a guide along to show you the best spots
to fish and what to use, the fishing is great too.

and canoes are nothing new, but over the last few years
we have seen the paddle sports get even more popular.
The kayaks we have today have evolved into very stable
and comfortable watercraft. With that we have seen specialty
kayaks designed for fishing and an explosion of the
popularity of kayak fishing. It all started in saltwater
but more and more anglers are discovering that fishing
freshwater from a kayak is not only fun but allows you
access to waters where you can't get a bigger boat in.
I have always used canoes to fish some of the rivers
and out of the way spots but have found the fishing
kayaks to be more comfortable and enjoyable to fish
from on these small waters.
offer fully guided trips on the Chippewa River or small
remote lakes in the Chequamegon National Forest
by kayak or canoe for from 2 people to groups.
A great way for the whole family to experience the wilderness
and with an experienced guide along the fishing is good
too. The Chippewa river has an orabundant population
of muskies and smallmouth as well as good walleye fishing.
Catching big trophy smallmouth from a kayak or canoe
is fun and a great experience, and catching muskies
from a kayak is maybe the ultimate freshwater experience!
