Floating Fishing Piers!

Anglers travel from throughout the Midwest to Clements Fishing Barge. Inaugurated in 1937, it's the oldest and finest fishing float on the Mississippi. Located just below Lock & Dam  #8 in Genoa, it truly is the state's fishing hot spot. Email or check out our web site at www.clementsfishing.com for more information.  Call 608-689-2800 or email us at clements@mwt.net.

Visitors are ferried across the river in a 20 passenger covered vessel to 8 floating piers, spanning 450'. Breakfast and lunch are available in the large lunch and tackle stand. Bathrooms, benches and landing nets are provided. Assistance is offered to novice anglers.

The 3rd generation of Clements is proud to be serving 4th generation patrons/ friends.

You will catch walleye, sauger, northern pike, bass, bluegills, perch, crappie, sturgeon and other fish species.  One of the best walleye fishing spots on the Mississippi River.  Located just south of La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Check our fishing and weather report before you come.

To help encourage the practice of catch and release of game fish, we have offered the fisherman a chance to win prizes each year. Every time you release a legal walleye, perch, smallmouth or largemouth bass and northern pike you have a chance to win prizes at the end of the season. You simply sign up every time you release a fish.
