Lake Run Fly & Guide

Captain Stephen Ernye of Lake Run Fly and Guide has been dedicated to chasing Great Lakes salmonids for over a decade! He believes in giving his clients the best chance at catching true trophies and creating life long memories.

Come aboard his 18’ Stealthcraft power drifter with a 40 HP Mercury engine and enough room to accommodate up to 3 people. You’ll have quality Lamiglass rods and reels to use, and if you’re a fly rodder, your guide will bring the fly fishing gear with him, just let him know in advance.

Capt. Stephen specializes in chasing Trout and Salmon, so it’s a good idea to pick a trip depending on what species you’d like to target. The Chinook Salmon season opens in September and these delicious fish are in the cards by late October.

As November approaches, Great Lake tributaries are becoming the playground of Brown and Rainbow Trout that follow the migrating Salmon in search of food. Trout are relentless acrobatic fighters that will give you an incredible battle before you get them into the boat.

The spring is a great time to chase big Brown Trout and get into some fast and furious action. Capt. Stephen will provide everything you need for your fishing jaunt, you just need to show up with a valid fishing license and some food for the trip.

Whether you decide to come with your kids or your best fishing buddies, Lake Run Fly and Guide will make it their business to get you hooked!
