Muskie on the Fly


When the days are long and the sun is hot, its muskie season in the north woods of Wisconsin! Come join in the hunt for one of the most intriguing predators swimming in fresh water. Fooling one of these stone-cold killers into the attempted murder of a fly is an experience you will not soon forget.


Due to their reclusive, and often unpredictable nature, muskie hunting requires a focused determination as well as a great investment of time.  Fishing with an experienced guide allows an angler to be 'plugged in' to the season-long endeavor of following and learning from these evil-eyed predators, providing a very good opportunity to find oneself in that 'right time, right place' situation when a big muskie decides it wants to eat.

The region surrounding Hayward, WI has long been noted for its exceptional muskie fisheries.  Several river systems- primarily the Chippewa, Flambeau, and Namekogan- offering excellent drift boat fishing have allowed local anglers to dial in specific patterns and tactics for pursuing muskies on the fly.  Owner and head guide of Musky Country Outfitters, Brad Bohen has been a major player in this emerging scene, and currently operates one of the area's premier float services.  Bohen's knowledge and time on the water provide his clients with an excellent opportunity to land the so-called 'fish of 10,000 casts.' 




Although muskie strikes are hard-earned, and can require an investment of time, muscle-bound smallmouth and toothy pike abound in many muskie waters, and make for great entertainment in between those magic moments.

The musky hunt begins in May and fishing can be excellent right up until the rivers freeze so there's still plenty of time to plan this year's muskie hunt.
