A little about us...

Here at Muddy Waters Guide Service we don’t sell guide trips, we sell memories and relaxation with friends and family, along with the experience and knowledge gained, that you will carry with you for the rest of your life and that’s something you can not put a price tag on!

Come take a ride down the Majestic Mississippi River and see for yourself all the beauty it has to offer.  From bald eagles soaring over the skies to the beavers and muskrats swimming down the lazy river.  The banks hold all kinds of wildlife, deer, turkeys, birds, etc.  The fishing is just a bonus because the scenery and wildlife are absolutely breathtaking.  From the snow/frost covered trees along the river banks and bluffs in the winter, to the colored leaves dropping into the river in the fall, to the summer sail boats on Lake Pepin and those docked in the harbor. Then there’s the beautiful train that runs up and down the shorelines and banks of the Mississippi, along with the mirror painted boat house – reflections on the water at Bay Point Park and the big river boats docked at Ole Miss Marina – this historical destination in Red Wing, Minnesota has so much to offer.  There is nothing like spending time on the water with family and friends.

We also own and operate Muddy Waters Eagle Tours on the Mississippi River town of Red Wing, Minnesota, which is in a class of its own with all the history, sights and scenery it offers.  Come along and join us while we float down the lazy river with so many places we can take you. Depending on water levels, we can float down the Wisconsin back Channel then slowly motor our way back up the river deep into the beautiful Vermillion River and under the old railroad bridge.  Lake Pepin is another option. There are so many possibilities in this robust area, with so many Eagle’s nests and wildlife along the banks of the Mississippi that you just can’t see from shore.  We will get you in very close proximity of the Eagles for your viewing pleasure or photography.

We pride ourselves on being professional, knowledgeable, and of course experienced and friendly.  We will work endlessly to put a smile on your face and a fish on the end of your line to make each and every trip a memorable success.

We are committed to making your trip both fun and educational.  Let us customize a trip to fit your needs whether you are an experienced angler or just a beginner, we have many different presentations to tailor your fishing needs.  This trip is not about us, it is about you!!
