Fly Fishing for Trout by Kayak

Kayak fishing is the hottest thing in both the fishing and the kayak magazines these days.  Now is your chance to learn how the stealth of a kayak can put you onto more fish in more remote locations.   You will learn habitat, distinguishing characteristics and some fun ways to hunt for fish.

By basing ourselves out of a central camp in the AuSable watershed we can have access to the legendary streamer waters of the AuSable’s main, South and North Branches as well as the upper Manistee all within easy drive and shuttle distance.
  • Day 1: Thursday evening arrival between 7-9 PM. Get acquainted and settled. Orientation for the rest of the weekend.

  • Day 2: Friday: equipment check out, shuttle to river and go for it.  Dutch oven campfire meal in camp for dinner.

  • Day 3: Saturday:  depending on weather, we'll head run one of the branches for fall Brown Trout.

  • Day 4: Sunday: after a hearty breakfast, we’ll do a shorter float and send you off for the drive home.
