Border Country Outdoor Adventures Testimonials
Hiring a guide can be a daunting task; people wonder is he a good guide, will they be worth the money, and many other questions. Matt and Ryan are top notch guides who enhance the guiding industry on Rainy Lake.
"Matt Shermoen and Ryan Schmidt started working at Rainy Lake Houseboats as fifteen year old dock boys. Both young men developed a keen love for Rainy Lake and fishing. Ryan and Matt soon became members of the famous Rainy Lake Houseboats guide staff. They trained with me (Billy Dougherty) and Bob Jornlin. They are excellent guides; they bring great integrity, super knowledge of all fish species that Rainy Lake has to offer, and possess great people skills."
