Established in 2009, we cater to vacationers and day visitors to the Driftless Region of Western Wisconsin. Trout Buddy Driftless Guides is not your traditional 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 watersheds as well as streams in southern Monroe and Vernon County's feeding the Kickapoo River system.

For the NOVICE or first timer who wants to learn a few skills we offer “experiences” that provide the patience, assistance and the equipment needed to have a great day. We provide the “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 all the while providing the same level of client service and benefits that our more experienced clients expect.    


For the more SKILLED angler we offer our extensive local knowledge, clean reliable transportation, a tasty tailgate or stream side lunch, deliver you to the harder to find Driftless "honey holes", give some assistance with fly selection, help landing fish and taking a picture or two. 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 press an unwanted "lesson". 


We started as a Western only type service but in 2013 after experiencing and then witnessing the growth of TENKARA fishing methods we elected to add to our offering and adjust some traditional thinking. Tenkara is very well suited for the smaller stream settings found in the Driftless and for anyone looking for a simple, productive, easy to learn way to fly-fish. It's both an ideal starting point for beginners and an enjoyable alternative to traditional rod, reel, fly line Western fishing. Goggle Tenkara to learn more...
