Fly By Night Guide Service Trips

One of the best things about the Bois Brule River is that you cant pick a bad time to come. From the season opener on the last Saturday in March, until the season closes on November 15th, something good is going on. With its runs of wild Steelhead, Salmon and Brown Trout, abundant wild Brook Trout population, prolific hatches and scenery that is second to none the Brule is one of the Midwest’s finest destinations.

All of Fly By Night Guide Service’s trips are 100% Catch And Release.  The waters we fish are sustained by natural reproduction, and we feel it is necessary to release all fish to insure the health these quality fisheries.

Upper Brule River Float

The Upper Brule River offers wonderful fishing for wild brook trout, brown trout and a few resident rainbow trout.  Gently winding through conifer bogs, mixed with a few gentle riffles and small rapids, it’s hard to find a more beautiful setting to fish in.

Whether you like to fish the hatches, or throw streamers and attractors, the Brule has something for you.

Fly By Night Guide Service has been specializing in “night floats” on this water for almost 20 years.  There is nothing in fishing quite like the sound of a big brown trout exploding on a deer hair mouse in the middle of the night.  It can give even the most seasoned angler a case of the shakes!

Because these floats are done in a canoe, we recommend one angler per canoe.  Please inquire about multiple guide and multiple day discounts.

All of our full day floats include an expertly prepared shore lunch.


Brule River Steelhead

The Brule River offers some of the finest fishing for WILD steelhead in the Great Lakes Basin.  The Lower Brule River’s appearance is quite different from that of the upper river, though no less beautiful.

It has miles of beautiful runs, pools and rapids, bordered by high banks and towering Norway and White Pines.  Brule River Steelhead take nymphs and egg patterns, fished under an indicator well, but will also viciously attack a swung fly.


A cold lunch is provided on all full day steelhead trips
