DNR - Michigan's Best Waters to Fly Fish for Wild Trout

Saputo told Door about his two Au Sable River guide boats, classics among the anglers who fly fish in Michigan’s best known trout stream. Door incorporated one of the boats — its gunwale lit by Christmas lights — for the shoot with Saputo and his fly fishing mentor Donn Vidosh of Petoskey. The shot shows them pulling the boat from the river with the cabin in the background. Cabela’s also has used an image of the Saputos dragging a Christmas tree through the woods in a postcard to customers.

It is no secret that northern Michigan’s fly fishing is one of a kind when you consider the variety of species in our local waters. The first popular season of the year is Spring Steelhead from mid-March through April, and Trout fishing in June with its hatches of big bugs aren’t missed by many. But in between is the month of May – a great month to fly fish Michigan – filled with a number of choices for anglers of all skill levels at a productive and less populated time.
