Last Chance for Fall Color Paddle Trips

We are still running trips and will continue as long as this great weather holds out. If you've never spent a crisp fall day on the wild and scenic Mississippi River during the fall color season, now is your chance! Take a break from the stress of school or work and come unwind for a day on the water.

According to the DNR Fall Color Finder...
We are currently at 25-50% color change!

Grab your camera and come out
for one last paddle of the season!

After fishing, everyone enjoyed a fantastic meal from Cutting Edge Catering (Nelson Brothers Restaurant, Pub, and Bakery) and ice cold beer from Beaver Island Brewing. A huge THANK YOU to all those who participated and helped! A special thank you goes out to our main sponsors: Clearwater Travel Plaza, Nelson Brothers Restaurant, Pub, and Bakery, Current Designs Kayak, NuCanoe, and Jackson Kayak.
