Armed Forces Initiative St Croix River Float trip

The Armed Forces Initiative of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is taking 6 Veterans on a float trip on the St. Croix river between Minnesota and Wisconsin this June.  The Smallmouth Fishing should be amazing this time of year and there is a bonus opportunity for a big Northern Pike or a Musky.  We will float for 5 miles before camping on an island in the river for the night, cooking a few fish, and learning about our public lands and waters before floating another 5 miles and taking out the next day.


Plan to arrive at the boat launch campground Friday evening for a meet and greet and plan or being back at your vehicles by 3 pm Sunday afternoon.  This trip is primarily for Wisconsin and Minnesota residents but all may apply.

Participants need:

  1. Wisconsin Fishing license 
  2. Boat clothes (weather dependent)
  3. Sunglasses
  4. Sunscreen
  5. Camp stove (jet boil or alike)
  6. sleep system (40 degree evenings possible)
  7. bug net for face
  8. Sun blocking hat


AFI will provide:

  1. Food
  2. Coffee
  3. Tents
  4. Boats
  5. Fishing Gear
  6. Cooking necessaries 


This trip has been donated by Amaazen Outdoors and is limited to 6 people.  Once you RSVP you will receive a separate email with a link to fill out an application to attend.
