Our lodge is located on the banks of the Mainstream of the Au Sable River east of Grayling in Michigan's beautiful north country. The currents are gentle, flowing over a shallow gravel bottom, allowing one to wade the center of the stream and cast to both banks. To fly fishers this is heaven, hence its name, the "Holy Water." This stretch is flies only, catch and release, and internationally known for its fly hatches. There are more than 100 miles of prime trout water in the Au Sable system and many times that with other streams in the region. The lodge is centrally located, and the other branches are just minutes away.
12/4/13 Rooms are available throughout the winter. Holiday shoppers check out our Shop Specials Page: www.gateslodge.com/shopspecials.php
It's gonna be cold. Focus your efforts on deeper water, or the slow water behind jams or on the insides of bends. Tandem nymph rigs has been catching some fish.
