The salmon are running by the thousands!! Also saw some huge brown trout caught. The whole experience was just awesome and fun! And if you love the outdoors, Michigan that time of year on the river is beautiful.

David knew exactly what we were doing right at first light. No feel out process. We had 4 hookups in the first hour. I picked his brain all day on all aspects of these fish and walked away with plenty of new knowledge and a 28 inch keeper. On top of everything David was an all around awesome guy to hangout with for the day.

We didn’t have a lot of river fishing experience, Dan was super knowledgeable and helped us really get the hang of everything. We had a great time fishing, chatting, and Dan made us lunch which was great. Definitely recommend working with him, he has a super strong knowledge of the area and the fishing conditions.

Brian is a fantastic guide. His knowledge of the river and personable approach are great. We ran the river on a day with a high pressure system moving in so the bites were slow, but I had a great time! I would recommend Bryan to anyone and look forward to booking again soon!

First time with Triple S and had a great experience. It was tough getting our limit but Tom made sure to find them. We marked a lot but can’t you make them bite. Fish cleaning was a bonus too. We plan to book another trip soon and will use Triple S again.
