Mainstream Guides will take you fishing on Michigan’s most productive rivers and streams where an abundance of fish life awaits! Guide Aaron Spence has fished these rivers professionally for over 15 years and is able to show you just what Michigan river fishing is all about.
Depending on the season when you book your trip, Aaron will guide on one of the following rivers: the Muskegon, the Manistee, the Rogue, the Grand or the Jordan River. You’ll be able to fish for Chinook and Coho Salmon from end of August through the end of October; Brown Trout is here May 1st to July 31st; and Steelhead is here most of the year - from September 1st through may 1st.
There is a whole wealth of wildlife to seen here, too. You can see an array of birds that flock to the waters in the hope of finding lunch, secluded parts of the river that offer perfect backdrops to posing with your catch, and more.
Guide Aaron will take you fishing on his 16’ Wooldridge Jet boat with a capacity for up to three persons. The jet boat is powered by a 150 HP Mercury Outboard engine and equipped with a fishfinder to locate the best fishing spots, life jackets for safety, and an icebox.
Mainstream Guides provide everything you need for your fly fishing adventure. Orvis and Redington fly fishing gear, a variety of tackle and bait all avait on the boat. You will have snacks, drinks, and even lunch since you’ll be fishing the whole day. Trips are eight hours long from dock to dock, and include about seven hours of fishing, and one hour or spot changing and rest for lunch.
Note: Fishing locations and start time will need to be decided based on fish migrations and stream activity. You must obtain a valid Michigan freshwater fishing license prior to the trip.
