The Rogue river in western Michigan is over 40 miles long and runs through Newaygo and Kent counties before joining the Grand river just north of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Rogue receives annual plantings of both rainbow and brown trout from the Michigan DNR, making for a nice small river for the fly fisher to pursue resident trout in. It also receives migratory runs of fall salmon and spring steelhead making it a great, near urban fishery for big game. The most common techniques for the fly fisher include dry fly for trout, as well as nymphing and streamer fishing for migratory species.

The Rogue river, just north of Grand Rapids, is a tributary to the Grand
river and has both resident trout, as well as a fall salmon run and spring
steelhead run. Primarily a cold water river, it will get some smallmouth
bass and walleye in it, during summer months. Best to wade fish this
small, intimate river.
