Basswood – All Day
You must have a BWCA day-use motor permit. If you do not have a permit, the guide can attempt to find a permit tag (it’s confusing and difficult government mumbo-jumbo) to see if a Basswood trip is possible during the time you are here. Otherwise, for long-term reservations, please secure a day-use motor permit to Basswood in advance at recreation.gov (click link). Sorry, you must make a reservation in your own name. We cannot do that service for you. Day-use motor permits are severely limited and hard to obtain.

What To Bring
For all guided trips you are required to bring your own fishing rods and reels, rain gear and appropriate clothing for the temperatures at that time. Flip flops are never recommended and Crocs are not suitable footwear for portaging. Preferably, closed toe footwear is recommended such as a running shoe or hiking boot. We also recommend full length pants over shorts as sometimes there can be insects. It makes for a more comfortable adventure.
Reserving a Trip
Advance reservations are always welcomed due to planning, scheduling, preparation requirements and weather accommodations. Please reserve your trip as early as possible. Last minute trips are possible but can be hit-or-miss do to guide commitments. We will do our best to get you on the water for a great day out out on the water.
Payment in full at the time of the trip reservation is required – Sorry, there are no refunds for trip cancellations.
