Spring Valley WI, United States

Wisconsin is one of the most popular fishing destinations in North America, for good reason. Small Craft Outfitters capitalizes on the productive rivers and lakes of the Spring Valley region to bring you an exciting fishing experience.

Tyler Thiede will happily guide you up and down the waters of Spring Valley aboard his Feelfree kayaks. They’re stable fishing platforms, perfectly suited to helping the novice paddler or providing support to the master caster. If you’re an avid fan of kayaking you can bring your own with Tyler. All the required safety equipment and tackle is provided by Small Craft Outfitters.

You’ll fish the backwaters of the Mississippi and Chippewa Rivers, as well as smaller lakes in the area. Experienced paddlers can hit the rivers themselves, it requires skill to cast while balancing on moving water.

The targets are all A-listers of freshwater fishing: Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass as well as Northern Pike. You’re free to keep any catch within legal limits but Tyler encourages you to release the fish – let other anglers have the same fun you had some other day!

Tyler’s words best describe trips with him: “It’s not just fishing, it’s an experience!” Book a trip today and take the first step towards your new favorite experience!

I've been fishing since I was a little kid. I started with a Zebco 22 and Texas rigged PowerWorms. Since then, I've refined my techniques and craft, now only fishing out of a kayak. Kayak fishing has brought me a higher level of peace and productivity when fishing. I love bringing the amazing experience of kayak fishing to others!
