                                            River Update 11-13-14                                          
Well as most of you know that know me, I quit guiding in the last of september every year because I love to chase Whitetail Deer with a bow and black powder rifle. As I have been checking all the other guide websites, it seems that the fishing has been as tough as the hunting. Still no Deer in the freezer for me as of yet, but we are still climbing trees and sitting in ground blinds looking for the big one (or medium size one) LOL. This Saturday the 15th is opening gun for Deer. So weather you are looking to catch that trophy Brown or bag that trophy Buck, good luck and most of all be safe and I will be talking to you soon and hope to have a photo to show you!!  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 



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.















Trout

May thru 1st week of October.
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. We hold permits and fish all State Waters on the Au Sable River, and other neighboring smaller rivers. Please keep in mind that we can't control the weather, but I am committed to giving you the best trip possible on any given day.

We supply leaders & all my own hand tied flies at no cost if you don't have your own. You bring polarized glasses, and be ready to fish.

Catch and Release trout fishing for browns, rainbows, and brookies and we fish for the grand slam daily!

Not just a boat ride, we catch fish.
