Fly Fishing Trips
Warm Water Species -

CWGS specializes in the frozen lakes of northwest, north-central and central Iowa. This includes lakes such as West Okoboji, Great Spirit Lake, Clear Lake, Lake Cornelia, Silver Lake, Brushy Creek Lake, Big Creek Lake, Rock Creek Lake, 3 and 12 Mile Lakes, Beaver Lake and many many more. If you have a lake you've been specifically wanting to target, give us a call and we can probalby help you out. If you just want to get out and put some fish on the ice, put your trust in us and we'll put you on the most productive lake at any given time. Species targeted through the ice are typically panfish (bluegills, crappies, yellow bass and perch), but in many of these lakes it is not at all uncommon to pick up some bonus wallyes and/or pike.

Ice Fishing Trips
• 1 to 2 People: $250.00
• Extra person (per person cost): $50.00
Warm water species-

On a limited basis, CWGS can also provide guide services for warmwater species such as bluegills, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass and carp on fly rod. Most smallmouth trips will be done by wading the Raccoon River below Panora, Iowa and will be CPR (catch-photograph-release) only. Panfish and largemouth bass trips will be on local farmponds or central Iowa lakes as conditions allow. Again, these trips are all on a limited basis and prices can vary. Like our trout trips, all of these trips are also available as spin fishing only. We also have a float tube option avaialble for our panfish and largemouth bass trips. Please contact us to discuss the details if any of these trips interest you.

• 1 Person: $210.00

• 1 Person: $150.00

"The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope."
