Guide Service and Day Use Permits

GUIDE SERVICE: Fishing guides typically charge $225-$250 a day to take out 2-3 people. A slightly higher fee for more people or to provide a shore lunch. It’s best to arrange guide service well in advance. A 3% Forest Service “user-fee” also applies.

DAY-USE “MOTOR” ENTRY PERMITS: A day-use motor permit is required when traveling by motorboat on Newfound, Sucker and Basswood Lake. A permit may be used on any one day of the week that you choose. Each permit covers up to 9 people and the cost is $6. No permit is necessary while using a motorboat on Moose Lake itself or if paddling a canoe.
