We'll spend a full day floating and fishing the historic flies only section of the Pere Marquette River located in beautiful Baldwin Michigan.

Depending on season and conditions you’ll get a chance to either dry fly, indicator or streamer fish your way through the waters that put brown trout on the map for Michigan and North America.

In 1884 the first stocking of German brown trout occurred in the
Baldwin River, what was once referred to as the Upper Branch of the Pere Marquette River.

Float past beautiful cabins scattered throughout remote settings. Enjoy a lunch on the river bank or a nice warm or cold tea or coffee between casts.
