Jim Bartelt

Spring Creek Specialties
Come to the Driftless Area of Southwest Wisconsin to experience some of the finest Spring Creek fly fishing in the United States. Located in Madison, Wisconsin, Spring Creek Specialties can provide a top fly fishing experience with long time professional guide, Jim Bartelt. This area in Southwestern Wisconsin was left untouched by the most recent glacial advances. The result is a very hilly topography with steep green valleys. Coursing through most of these valleys are thousands of miles of spring creeks that support excellent aquatic insect life, crustaceans, forage fish, and of course, trout.

Driftless Angler Fly Shop

The Driftless Angler is a full-service fly shop located on the historic main street in Viroqua Wisconsin. A short drive from anywhere in the upper Midwest, we are centrally located within the Driftless Area’s thousands of miles of spring creek trout streams. With a huge selection of flies and some of fly fishing’s finest gear, let us outfit you for your fishing trip on our local streams like the West Fork of the Kickapoo or Timber Coulee. Or let our professional guide service help you improve your skills and unlock the secrets of some lesser known creeks. Anglers of all skill levels will find the abundant trout and stunning scenery of Southwest Wisconsin an experience to remember

Chris Jape

Rivers End Guide Service

Our guide service was established to offer anglers a unique experience on the fast, shallow, beautiful rivers of northeast Wisconsin.  Many parts of these rivers are inaccessible except by shallow drafting boats such as canoes, kayaks or drift boats.  River’s End Guide Service uses western style drift boats because they not only offer a stable platform to fish from, but they also allow the fisherman and guide to move into places that others may have difficulty accessing.
