  • Float Trips

    Guided float fishing trips offer a unique way experience fly fishing and enjoy all that a day on the water has to offer. If the idea of a relaxing day fishing a river from a drift boat or raft with fly rod in hand sounds fun, you can’t go wrong. One major benefit of a float trip is they allow for not only great fishing but also provides anglers abundant opportunities to cast to fish that you couldn’t access on a wade trip. Float trips also allow you to cover miles of water and provide a new sense of adventure around each bend. Floating the stream is lots less physically demanding and the possibility of stumbling and falling are all but eliminated.

     

    You'll be outfitted with Sage and Redington fly rods and Lamson reels. The trip cost includes all flies and terminal tackle, transportation to and from the river, and a hearty riverside lunch on full day trips. Michigan fishing licenses or gratuity for the guide are not included in our guided trip pricing.

     

    All trip participants that are 16 years of age and older are required to carry a valid Michigan fishing license with them at all times while fishing. We strongly recommend you purchase your license online prior to the trip in order to save time and get on the river sooner.

     

    Our weather is fairly predictable and significant temperature swings are not uncommon. We'll advise you prior to your trip so that you can be prepared with hat, sunglasses, socks, layers, sunscreen and jacket.

     

    Trips start with the guide picking you up at your hotel and driving to the river. Typical drive times range from 10-45 minutes. We'll get rigged up and head out on the water.

  • Wade Trips

    Guided wade fishing trips offer a unique way to experience the water and the surroundings in a more intimate way than float trips. There's a sense of adventure as you stalk along the river searching for rising fish, while seeing all different kinds of plants, animals, and birds that you might not notice if you were floating by. And if your a beginner a wade trip allows your guide to be right there at your hip directing and coaching you. Without a boat to manage, the guide is able to spend more time on instruction and casting techniques that can later be translated to a boat.

     

    You'll be outfitted with Redington and Sage fly rods, Lamson fly reels, and Redington waders and boots. The trip cost includes all flies and terminal tackle, transportation to and from the river, and a hearty riverside lunch on full day trips.
