Tenkara Fly Fishing

Tenkara Fly Fishing

Easy |  Approx. 4 hours
Lutsen | Caribou Highlands
Originating in Japan's mountain streams, Tenkara is the simplest form of fly fishing. It uses less equipment than traditional fly fishing and focuses on small streams. Which is ideal for the narrow rivers around us on the North Shore and the perfect match for beginners.

What to Bring

Sunscreen, bug spray or bug head net, plenty of water and snacks, weather and activity appropriate clothing (shorts are recommended and bring a rain jacket just in case), and a towel to leave in the vehicle.

What to Know

You must possess or purchase a Minnesota Fishing License with a Trout Stamp (24-hour license or other short-term licenses are available). Licenses can be purchased online, at any Holiday Gas Station, and at select businesses such as Clearview General Store in Lutsen. Expect to get wet! Transportation is not provided for this activity, so we ask that you follow us in your personal vehicle to the fishing destination. We practice catch and release fishing, as they are beautiful, small, rainbow and native brook trout. For your safety in the event of inclement weather (constant wind exceeding 20 mph and/or thunder and lightning) the tour will be canceled and payment will be refunded.
