Ethan with a nice buck

I do not have a lot of time so I’m going to keep it brief. Fishing is good with a mixture of chrome fish in the pools and winter fish hitting the gravel. Try using eggs, stones, hex nymphs and salmon fry patterns for best results.

I am a native of Lake County and have been guiding on the river since 1993. The Pere Marquette has been my playground since childhood and I feel truly blessed to have been born and raised along such an epic river. It brings great joy to my life guiding the waters that my great, great grand parents fished and swam in as children. Whether your goal is indigenous trout or migratory fish the Pere Marquette offers year round fishing opportunities. With over 70 miles of mainstream waters it is truly a great place to be a fishing guide! I've learned a lot of tricks for catching fish on the Pere Marquette and would love to pass that knowledge along to you so, if you're interested in spending a quality day (Or more! ;^) on the water with me just call the shop to set up your trip(s)! Until then, tight lines! John
