These guys are on the river from the last snowfall to the first, and every day in between; and their experience is to the benefit of their clients. From basic instruction to midnight trophy hunting, our guides are the best of the best. We float all the branches of the Au Sable, as well as the much of the Manistee, in the famous Au Sable Riverboats. We also offer float trips in McKenzie-style drift boats where appropriate, including the lower reaches of the Au Sable. Wade trips are available, along with four-hour on-stream instruction sessions that give beginning anglers one-on-one time with a guide.
Our guides book up fast! Please secure your dates via the Guide Request form below, or by calling the fly shop: (989) 348-8462.
We have a $100 cancelation fee for trips canceled within five days of the date, and we ask for full payment for trips canceled within 24 hours of the trip date regardless of whether we can re-book the trip or not. We fish rain or shine, and urge clients to not confuse the weather forecast with the fishing forecast.
