  • Capt Will is a great guy and an awesome guide. His knowledge of the Kankakee River is unsurpassed. My friend Steve and I went on a float trip with Will. His drift boat is very stable. The water temp had dropped nearly 20 degrees in the 48 hours prior to our trip so my expectations were rather low. We caught a good amount of bass, especially considering the conditions! I'm very much looking forward to my next trip.
  • Capt Will guided me on my first ever fly fishing experience. Within the first half hour he had me casting onto targets no problem. His instruction was spot on. I went there specifically to learn the fundamentals so I don’t develop bad habits trying to teach myself. Not only do I feel we accomplished that, we caught some smallies and I enjoyed all the beautiful Kankakee River has to offer! I’ll be back for sure.
