Cliff’s Guide Service | Cliff Wagenbach
Original charter member of the Lake Vermilion Guides League
Vice Chairman of The Lake Vermilion Guides League
Married 53 years to his wife Jean. They have two sons, Cliff Jr. and Coby.
Moved to Tower in 1957 at the age of 10 and has been an admitted walleye addict ever since he caught his first walleye that spring! Cliff has been guiding clients to walleyes on Lake Vermilion for 20 plus years. 10 of those years being part time between shifts while working 30 years for LTV Steel. He has been a full time professional guide since he retired in 2001 and now averages 100 plus trips a summer.
Cliff’s most enjoyable part of guiding is being able to take clients of all ages out for an enjoyable day of fishing and teaching them how to catch walleyes and then seeing them at a later date and have them say that their ability to catch walleyes has been greatly improved because of their guided trip with him.
