A River Guide Service is just that. I spend the vast majority of my angling time on the scenic rivers. Rivers are all I do. Besides the river's beauty and tranquility they offer some of the best angling opportunities in the state. Here are some of my favorites.
The Embarrass River
The Peshtigo River - Peshtigo's only full time guide.
The Wisconsin River and its flowages
The Fox River and its flowages
The Wolf River and its flowages
The Pensaukee River
The Milwaukee River
The Kewaunee River
The Oconto River
The Menominee River (Marinette Co.)
Yes, I do fish lakes. I specialize in the Minocqua Chain, Lake Poygan, Lake Winneconne and others. If you're interested in a body of water not listed, please call. I may know it and if I don't I know a respectable guide who can help you.
There are three factors that effect any fish in a river or stream. These are water level, water temp and water clarity. One of the best tools I use daily is the USGS real time water information system. This site will give you the up to the minute water temps and flow for many rivers and streams in Wisconsin.

Spending time on the river is one of the most enjoyable expereinces in fishing. This is for several reasons. One, the fishing can be spectacular. Two, no jet skis or water skiers here. Three, most bodies have little pressure. Many of the river systems I fish offer the solitude of Canada without all the rules and expense.
