Au Sable River Guide Service

About Us

Au Sable River Guide Service is a full-service river guiding service in the Grayling, Michigan area. We have two full-time guides, Captain Tom Quail (owner) and Scott Hummon. We each have been fly fishing for over twenty-five years. We run three boats, a ClackaCraft 15′ Headhunter II and a 22′ Au Sable Riverboat (Captain Tom’s boats), and a 14.5′ custom-made wooden drift boat (Scott’s boat). We are both Michigan Trout Unlimited members (Vanguard Chapter) and American Red Cross Adult, Child, and Infant CPR/AED & First Aid certified.

What we do

Au Sable River Guide Service is a full-service guide service concentrating on the Au Sable and Manistee rivers but we will guide other rivers in northern Michigan. We specialize in new fly fishers, especially women and youth. They are the future for fly fishing and Trout Unlimited. We are very service-oriented and will help you to enjoy your day of fishing and hopefully improve your fly fishing skills.

Where we do it

We do the majority of our guiding in the Grayling, Michigan area on the Au Sable River and its tributaries and the Upper Manistee River. The Au Sable River includes the main branch above and below Mio Dam, the “Holy Waters”, the North Branch, and the South Branch.
