Guided Fishing in Northern Michigan

Our guide service provides a first class experience with veteran guides and high quality tackle. Our goal is to provide you the fishing experience of a lifetime. We target trout, salmon, steelhead, and other species. Year round fishing opportunities. Head guide Kelly Neuman has spent 25 years guiding the Au Sable River and other Michigan waters.

Where We Fish

Our home waters are the "big waters" of the Au Sable River, where you can chase brown trout, steelhead, Atlantic salmon, king salmon, smallmouth bass, and more. We also fish the Betsie, Manistee, and Jordan Rivers in northern Michigan as well as the Lake Huron shoreline and bays. In the winter we fish the White River in Arkansas for trophy brown trout.

Custom Rod Building

Kelly Neuman's reputation as a true craftsman is well earned. He puts care and creativity into each rod he builds. Looking for the perfect rod with custom wrapping and guides? Winston and Sage blanks are his favorites but other options ar available. We can also design a custom combo for you complete with an Abel or Bauer reel.

Species and Seasons

From winter steelheading to trophy browns and smallmouth bass in the summertime, we have fishing opportunities 365 days a year. Want to catch a big brown trout on a hex on the Au Sable or Manistee? Atlantic salmon on a swung streamer? How about King salmon on the Betsie River?
