Steelhead and Salmon runs occur throughout the Great Lakes Region in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York.

Our trips are customized to cater to the anglers ability and desires. We offer wading trips and float trips on our inflatable watercrafts. The location of your trip will be determined based on the variety of fish you are interested in stalking, the dates you are available, your location, the distance you are willing to travel and where the best bite is at that time. We offer multi-day destination trips, team building/ family events, weekend get-a-ways, trips to blue ribbon streams and any type of fishing trip you desire. Custom trips priced individually.
Our wading trip prices include use of Fly rods and flies. Novice anglers can request their trip be tailored as an on-water lesson. These trips will focus on teaching casting mechanics, safe wading techniques, basic fly selection and how to read the water. Experienced anglers will be shown advanced fishing techniques, and will be challenged to catch large fish on light tackle.
Our float trips prices include guiding on an inflatable watercraft that you pilot and Fly-Fishing tackle needed. These inflatable watercraft are light weight and extremely nimble on the water. These trips will focus on teaching casting mechanics, safe wading techniques, basic fly selection, how to read the water to locate fish, river safety and navigation.
