Guided Ely MN & Boundary Waters Fly-Fishing

Come fish Ely Minnesota, the Boundary Waters and Quetico and experience some of the best fly-fishing in the world, for trophy smallmouth bass, northern pike, muskie and largemouth bass. World renowned for its abundance of trophy sized fish, this area is quickly gaining a reputation as the world’s best fishery for smallmouth bass and pike and muskie. In the July/August 2008 issue of American Angler Brian O'Keefe said "A fly-fishing trip into the Boundary Waters Area Wilderness gets you away from the crowds...and into the fish."

With Moose Track Adventures Guide Service you get a USFS Licensed Guide who has been fishing this area for over 20 years and is a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor. We provide full service fly fishing guided trips with everything included from the rods and reels to the most productive flies. That’s right, unlike other guide services we provide all the flies for free. You get a professional licensed full time guide, whose focus is putting you on the fish, teaching you the techniques that work, and offering an enjoyable experience on the water. If you choose a shore lunch, you will receive a gourmet grilled lunch prepared before your eyes that you will be talking about for weeks. From May through September our guides are on the water almost daily, weather conditions permitting, locating the most favorable spots and techniques to insure your outing will be a success.  All ages and skill levels are welcome and beginner fly fishing classes are available. Moose Track Adventures has been in numerous publications including Fish and Fly, American Angler, Mid-West Living, Cabelas Outfitter Journal, Los Angeles Time to list a few.

The Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Quetico is home to world class Smallmouth Bass Fishing. The Smallmouth Bass is one of the most prized game fish of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Quetico and the perfect adversary for the fly fishing angler. These rod bending, surface smacking “bronze-backs” readily attack top water presentations, and are a consistent producer throughout the canoe season. Their relentless fighting ability is known everywhere, thus providing the perfect adversary for the fly fisher-person to test their abilities against. This trip will focus on the special techniques required to catch these fish and will incorporate casting techniques, fly tying, and catch and release.
