                                            River Update 9-17-15
Well here it is almost the end of September, and Fall is here. Canoes, Kayaks, and Tubes are all pretty much done for the year so the River can get back to peace and quiet once again, and Fisherman can enjoy a few more months of Streamer & Nymph Fishing if that is what you are into till Winter sets in. Most of my clients are Dry Fly Fisherman and don't like Streamer Fishing so I'm pretty much done after Labor Day and go back to Southern MI where I live out the Winter months hunting Deer with Bow & Muzzle Loader (on my little piece of Heaven) Hillsdale County. Since I've been retired in 2004 I guide the Au Sable and other Rivers from April thru September. During Winter months I hunt and plow snow for a contractor for Ford Motor Co.. It's a pretty good life if I do say so myself. So whatever you do in the Fall and Winter months, enjoy, be safe, and God Bless and God Speed till Spring 2016 when I look forward to seeing all my clients again on the beautiful Au Sable River!. Thanks for a great 2015 Season! Weekly reports and fresh pics as they come in during fishing season, so keep checking back weekly.  God Bless & Good fishing, Dennis

Spring Steelhead

April till 1st week of May (short time!!)
We fish for Steelhead on some pretty private waters and that's all I will say about that. We fish from a Lund Alaskan Jon Boat and use Egg patterns as well as Nympths. Big Fish! Big Fun! I generally book from year to year, but you can call to see if I have any cancellations if you are interested in booking a Steelie trip.

We fish for Brown's, Rainbows, and Brookies on the famous Au Sable River known as the Trophy Waters out of Mio, MI. Streamer's, Dry's, and Nympths are all on the menu daily. we supply rods, fly's, leaders and fish out of a Hyde Driftboat. Comfortable and safe. Call early for prime dates which are May & June and end of August thru September (Prime time fishing!) depending on waters temps and water levels in late Summer.

We are a full service accomplished guide service offering full and half day guided flyfishing trips on the famous Au Sable River in Mio, MI.
