Where we do it

Once a grayling fishery, the Pere Marquette watershed was the first place in America where German brown trout were stocked in 1884. The PM isn’t impounded by a dam, making it one of the longest free-flowing rivers in the Midwest and a great fishery for anadromous Great Lakes salmon and steelhead. The PM’s resident brown trout and rainbow trout gorge themselves on eggs from lake run fish from fall through spring. Some of the PM’s best trout fishing is done after dark, with prolific Drake and Hex hatches in the summer, as well as mousing when the conditions are right. You’ll also find other hatches including caddis, stoneflies, Hendricksons, sulphurs, and isonychias.
