FLY FISHING MICHIGAN




Michigan is a great place to fly fish for trout and steelhead. From the great trout streams like the Au Sable River to the Steelhead waters of the Muskegon River, and the great Pere Marquette River there is something for everyone.

There is a wide variety of fish types like salmon and trout throughout the state, and the fish can be quite large. There is great fishing in every region of the state, which spreads the anglers out so it is does not get so crowded.

The best fishing in all of the Midwest can be found here and you can fly fish year round if you would like. Many of these rivers have great hatches so there is plenty of opportunity to set a dry hook. There is a lot to offer the serious fly fisherman, and you should see it for yourself. If you are looking for a fly-fishing guide there are plenty to choose from.

AU SABLE RIVER

The Au Sable River is one of the most known trout streams in the midwest, not just the state. This is a nice stream with great hatches and nice trout. The lower sections have great Steelhead runs.

PERE MARQUETTE RIVER

Referred to by the locals as the “PM” this was the first river in North America where the German Brown Trout were planted 130 years ago. The river also has runs of Steelhead, Chinook and Coho Salmon.

Pere Marquette River

MUSKEGON RIVER

The Muskegon begins near Houghton Lake and ends up in Lake Michigan after going through three dams. It is the 2nd largest river in the state and has a variety of fish including Bass, Pike, Trout and Walleye as well as runs of Steelhead and Salmon.

UPPER MANISTEE RIVER

The Manistee river stats near Alba and winds for nearly 80 miles before flowing into Lake Michigan. The Upper Manistee fly-fishing is between HWY 72 and downstream to CCC Bridge. The Upper Manistee produces some of the largest trout in the Midwest, and it is open year round in the fly’s only area.

BOARDMAN RIVER

The Boardman River may be the finest wild trout stream in the state. The Boardman starts near Kalkaska and the river is not very wide, so a drift boat is not the best option. The Brown trout and Brook trout provide great fishing especially during the fall.
