Autumn Fishing Adventures

Canoe the beautiful Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness during the fall, taking in the spectacular change in seasons.  Customize your trip to be a fishing trip!  With the winter months just ahead, autumn is feeding time for most species of fish.  Catch Walleye, Northern Pike, Small-mouth Bass and pan fish at any time of day and at any depth.  Enjoy a great shore lunch or dinner when you return to your campsite.  On a custom autumn fishing trip, Northern Tier will provide all the necessary fishing equipment (feel free to bring your own if you prefer).
