Steelhead Time!

MarkSteel01e4203333350d9836ceb13fa6d3d28402cc01f216

It is one of our favorite times of year here at the shop, steelhead season. We, along with several our clients, have already been out fishing. The fishing so far has been amazing. Michigan is having a run of very large fish this year and very good numbers as well. We will be doing several trips this season as well for steelhead. If you would like to go on one give us a call. If you can’t make it on one or want to go on your own we have a list of top guides in Michigan and Ohio that we can refer you to. Also, if you want to get into steelhead fishing we can get you heading in the right direction. We have you covered at WCO for gear, clothing, flies, and tying material for your steelhead adventure.

Featured Travel Destination

Five Rivers Lodge Five Rivers Lodge
This is the signature lodge for Wildcat Creek Travel. Most of our staff has traveled to Five Rivers multiple times and believe it to be one of the top fly fishing lodges in the world just not the states. If you read our criteria for lodges that we represent you will see that we judge them very strictly and think that for the kind of money you give to go to these wonderful lodges you should get your money’s worth. You definitely get your money’s worth at Five Rivers Lodge.

Five Rivers meets everything we believe is important for a lodge.

The food is not just good -- it is outstanding! Jay Burgin and Mary Jaques go to great trouble and great expense to ship in the finest food they can get their hands on. If you go just make sure you ask Jay to prepare his seared duck with raspberry sauce. I am telling you now it will make you weak in the knees. It is so good I could rub it all over my face, no kiddin’. The food is as good at Five Rivers as lodge food is anywhere not to mention they have a tremendous wine cellar. All drinks and food are included in this package which makes this a killer deal. By the way the hors d'oeuvres are out of this world.

Be careful not to fill up on those before dinner! (more…)
