Pere Marquette River, Manistee National Forest, Pleasant Plains, MI

I am guiding in Michigan from September through May on the Pere Marquette River, which is a national scenic river. It was also the first river in the United States to introduce German Brown Trout in 1884. It is also a designated “Blue Ribbon Trout Stream”. We have brown trout, rainbow trout, king salmon, coho salmon, and some brook trout. The PM’s mainstream starts at the Forks and flows west towards Ludington. The mainstream is approximately 67 miles long, which flows into Pere Marquette Lake just east of Ludington. I guide out of The Pere Marquette River Lodge, which is located on M-37 just south of downtown Baldwin. The lodge has an Orvis Endorsed Fly Shop, newly renovated ten bedroom lodge, ten cabins, and two houses right on the river. So if you need a place to stay for our trip, this is the place you want to be at.

I am guiding in Alaska from June through the first part of September.  The lodge I work for is called “Alaska’s Bearclaw Lodge”, where I have been working there for three summers.  The lodge is located in southwest Alaska, on Lake Aleknagik.  Our river system is a five lake system flows into Nushagak Bay, which eventually flows into Bristol Bay.  We fish for all five species of salmon, trout, grayling, artic char, dolly varden, and pike.  Not to mention that we have some of the best dry fly fishing in all of Alaska.  If this is something that you would like more information about please contact me either by email or phone for more details.
