Trout Buddy -- Not Your Traditional Guide Service!
We cater to vacationers and day visitors to the Driftless Region of Western Wisconsin. Trout Buddy is not your traditional fishing guide service as our primary vision is to provide a relaxed, friendly and non-intimidating fly fishing experience based only on your desires, physical ability and fishing background.  

We concentrate our "experiences" on the many natural reproduction Driftless region trout steams of southern LaCrosse and Vernon Country's feeding the Bad Ax River and Coon Creek as well as streams in Monroe and Vernon County's feeding the Kickapoo River system.


For the NOVICE or beginner that wants to try the sport of fly fishing we offer “experiences” that provide the patience and equipment you will need to give the sport a try. We will help you with some “how to” fly fishing basics including understanding equipment, the principles of casting, select an easy access stream to learn on, offer some helpful suggestions as the day progresses and provide the same level of service and benefits that our more experienced clients have come to expect.

For the more SKILLED Driftless angler we offer "experiences" that include our extensive local knowledge, clean reliable transportation, a nice tailgate or stream side lunch, deliver you to the hard to find "honey holes" of the Driftless area, give some assistance with fly selection and help landing the fish. Unlike traditional guide services our first goal is to offer the friendship of fellow angler and we promise to not be critical, try to coach or provide an unwanted "lesson". 

In 2014 we are expanding our use of TENKARA. Tenkara is the generations old Japanese method of fly-fishing. It is very well suited for the smaller stream settings found in the Driftless and for anyone looking for a simpler way to fly-fish. It is an ideal starting point for beginners as well as those that enjoy using micro-light equipment.   

We are fully licensed and insured in Wisconsin. Please give us a call to discuss and schedule your Trout Buddy Experience at 608-792-2521 - MasterCard or VISA are accepted.
