Guided Trips

My full-day trips are approximately 8 to 9 hours on the water. Half-day trips are 4 to 5 hours on the water. Start times depend on your schedule and the fishing season.

Fly-fishing Trips:

I offer fly-fishing trips for trout, salmon and steelhead. I will provide all the equipment and flies best suited for the fishing conditions. Also, just because you have never fly fished, don’t let that scare you. I am more than happy to get you started fly fishing. Want to learn spey? I can teach you that as well during our trip.

Casting Trips:

If you choose, I have the gear and know how for plug or spin fishing.

Instructional Trips:

I also offer instructional trips for any level of fisherman that wants to improve their knowledge and skills. Unlike other instructional classes, my classes are held while floating down the river. You will learn knot tying, casting, fishing techniques, stream etymology and ecology, and stream etiquette; all while you fish/float down the river. I love doing family instructional trips.

You Should Bring:

  • Clothing that will allow you to spend a full-day comfortably in any weather conditions (dressing in layers is best; plan on the worst weather).
  • Camera (the disposable kind are very nice).
  • Hat and sunglasses.
  • Waders (optional, but highly recommended).

Fishing License:

A valid Michigan fishing license is necessary. You may purchase either a full-season or one-day fishing license online by clicking the image below.
