Men's Trout Fishing Adventure


Come and learn how to trout fish at the Wolf River Refuge! You will learn many things including how to tie flies and fish with them. We will have instructors to help you be successful in fishing for local trout in the Wolf River area. We will be fishing from canoes in local spring ponds so waders are not necessary.
