Pere Marquette River Description
The Pere Marquette River is one the Michigan's blue ribbon claims to fame.
Our migratory fish runs are what separates this river from most. The
mighty King Salmon start showing up around late August and take over the
river by the tens of thousands until mid October. The lower you go in the
river the more these fish are like a freight train as they just entered
the river strong and vibrant. Fall Steelhead come
up the river to feed on the King's caviar, these fish are
explosive and acrobatic this time of year. March and April we are visited
by thousands of spawning Steelhead. If you are not a migratory fisherman
not to worry. But keep in mind this is also one of the best times to clean
up on big trout. You see our trout grow to exponential size hanging out
behind the spawning fish gorging on eggs four months out of the year. It's
also the very first river to have the German Brown Trout planted in it.
Prolific hatches and night time fishing produce life time achiever trout.
If your not a night time fisherman the terrestrial hatches in July and
August can produce some great fishing while you work on your tan wet
wading. We have lodging available on the river.
