2018 Driftless Fly Fishing Trips


This Spring, Red Fox Outfitters will once again partner with The Painted Trout (Dexter, MI) and Driftless Angler Fly Shop (Viroqua, WI) for a few weekends of fishing in the “Driftless Area” of Southwest Wisconsin.

The Driftless Area is full of small, cold-water streams. The region gets its name due its historical past. The glaciers in the last ice age did not move or drift across this region, in contrast to much of the land throughout the Midwest, making for some unique and hilly topography. The area is full of hundreds of miles of streams with an abundance of springs, making for a large amount of trout habitat. The small streams meander through the rural pastures, fields and hills. Many of the streams are not more than 10 yards across, making for some great stalking and sight fishing opportunities.

Trip Dates

  • April 19th-22nd (Painted Trout hosted)
  • May 17th-20th (Painted Trout hosted)
  • June 14th-17th (Red Fox Outfitters hosted) – FULLY BOOKED

There are several levels of accommodations available for these trips. Group camping is available at West Fork Sportsmans Club. Also available is the option for two provided and cooked meals for each day of the trip: breakfast and dinner.
