River Update 9-25-14
Well now that my Fishing & Guiding Season is over till April 2015 I just wanted to say thank you to all my regular and new clients for making this my best year yet since I began guiding full time 11 years ago. I know it was a bad start in April and May with all the rain & run offs from the bad Winter of 2013 & 2014. The Rivers were all running out of their banks and water depths and temps never got good till end of May, but luckily for me most of my clients are Outdoorsman and Fisherman and knew there wasn't anything we could do to change Mother Nature, except get out on the beautiful Au Sable and give it 100%, and for that I say thanks a million times over!!! I am blessed with great clients! We caught a lot of fish, some big and a lot small, but I think a good time had by all. We had a good Summer, cool temps and plenty of rain to keep the river healthy all Summer and Fall. Next Spring and Summer there should be some really good healthy fish for all to enjoy. Hope everyone has a great Winter and hope to see everyone again in Spring of 2015. Call early to set up Prime Times in Mid May thru June as I book really fast for the Prime Times. You can check the Weather link above and click on webcam and that will give you updated pics of the condition of the river. God Bless and see you soon.You can check my above USGS River Flow page for water temps on the Au Sable on a daily basis.
God Bless Dennis Davis/RiverGuide

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!

We fish for Brown's, Rainbows, and Brookies on the famous Au Sable River known as the Trophy Waters out of Mio, MI.
