Fly Fishing Outfitters from Indiana to Patagonia and Beyond

Michigan Steelhead Trip: Nov. 2nd-5th

01e4203333350d9836ceb13fa6d3d28402cc01f216It’s quickly approaching one of our favorite times of year, steelhead season. We love fall steelhead fishing, we look forward to it every year. We will be making a special trip up to northern Michigan this fall. What makes this trip special from our other fall steelhead trips you may ask, well let us tell you. This trip will have a focus on swinging flies for steelhead. Don’t let the thought of swinging flies intimidate you. Swinging flies for steelhead is an effective and enjoyable technique to learn. We have several great guides for this trip that will help you learn how to fish a swung fly. You do not have to be an experienced two-handed/ spey caster to go on this trip. We will actually have workshops and clinics leading up to this trip as well.

We will be leaving on Sunday the 2nd, fishing Monday and Tuesday( 3rd and 4th) and returning on Wednesday the 5th. We have room for only 5 anglers on this trip. Mike will be hosting the trip, so if you have any questions, please call the shop or email him at mike@wildcatcreekoutfitters.com

Featured Travel Destination

Pittstown Point, Crooked Island in the Bahamas Pittstown Point, Crooked Island in the Bahamas
This is an Island that holds a special place in our heart. We have hosted many trips to this island and have become friends with the guides and staff of the lodge. Pittstown Point is a point that jaunts out of the northwestern side of the island. Off the point is a very old light house that was relit only a few years ago. The lodge sets in one of the most picturesque places on earth facing this light house.

The island sets next to another well known island Acklins and with Crooked Island forms the Bight of Acklins. Inside the bight is an enormous area of flats, creeks and channels. The bight has hundreds of square miles of flats. These flats are teeming with huge schools of unpressured Bonefish. We have fished these Bonefish in both spring and summer and always find schools of true 3 to 4 pound fish. There is the occasional school of Bonefish in the 4 to 8 pound range as well. There are only two fishing operations on Crooked Island and with the sheer enormity of the flats area it allows an angler to cast to a lot of fish that have rarely if ever seen a fly. (more…)
