For the last 20 years plus I have headed to the Frankfort area in the late summer for 6-8 weeks of guided float trips for Kings and Coho Salmon. Just an awesome small town on Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Betsie River. Love the Betsie River and that my main river from late August thru early October. This year my plans are set and start full time August 25th and will be staying till October 8th. Could start early if the Kings come heavy in earlier August like they do some years. I do have 2 other guides but this is a very popular season for us so if your interested in dates get them down as soon as possible. Guide trips are available for both the spinning and fly anglers. Hunting for fresh run good biting Kings is what I looking for!

Here are some photo from my boat last fall on the Betsie River. This first one of the Welk’s was one of my favorites from last year – Chrome King Oct 1st!
