Guided Kayak Fishing with River Bend’s Resort

Kayak Fishing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Our fleet of Hobie fishing kayaks, with their Mirage Drive pedal system free your hands up to focus more on fishing and less on kayak navigation. These kayaks have opened up opportunities to fish areas that boats pass by on a daily basis, due to lack of access through shallow water, or vegetation.

Our guide will take you on a Rainy River fishing adventure you will not forget. Targeting lake sturgeon, giant northern pike, walleye and smallmouth bass. There will be no shortage of action. The Rainy River, which is mainly fished spring and fall during peak Walleye runs, is also a world renowned Smallmouth bass fishery. It is also known for its predominant population of Lake Sturgeon, that can reach lengths of 70” plus, and weights over 80 lbs.
