Clements Fishing Barge
Come join us for a Fishing Adventure
We have been in business since 1937! This location is one of the premier fishing spots in the country. Located in Genoa, Wisconsin, the heart of the 240,000 acre Upper Mississippi River Refuge. Our superb fishing brings you Walleye, Sauger, Northern Pike, Bluegill, Crappie, Perch, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, Catfish and Sturgeon. There are a 134 aquatic species located in the Refuge! You never know what you might catch.
We provide a great experience of fishing and fun for all ages, with easy accessibility. We have 12 floating piers located directly below a Lock and Dam. You have the opportunity to fish from a secure location not only loaded with fish, but such amenities as chairs, benches, picnic tables, restrooms, landing nets and a lunch room providing food, tackle and accessories on site. We have everything you need for an enjoyable experience. This is a place for the experienced angler or the novice angler. We are here to help you catch fish.
Located just below Lock and Dam #8 on the shoreline is a flag pole. Once you raise the flag we make a trip across to pick you up. We make trips on the half hour in the mornings and on the hour in the afternoons to bring you to this ideal location. Our enclosed 20 passenger Coast Guard inspected vessel will bring you to us on the Minnesota side of the river. Be sure to pick up your live bait at Captain Hook’s Bait and Tackle here in Genoa before you come over. You can use a MN or WI fishing license.
