Northern Michigan Salmon & Steelhead

 

King Salmon FishingCome on the trip of a lifetime with Fish With Jim Outfitters to Northern Michigan for your shot at a wide range of Migratory Salmon and resident Trout on some of the states most pristine rivers.  Catch King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Atlantic Salmon, Steelhead and Brown Trout during their respective runs on the Bear River, Boyne River, Jordan River, Elk River and Boardman River.

 

September King Salmon Fishing

Fish With Jim Outfitters offers trips for King Salmon starting in Late August through September as they migrate from Lake Michigan to the rivers of Northern Michigan to make their annual spawning run.  We target a variety of different types of water that include rivers, river mouths, drowned river mouth lakes and the Lake Michigan beach.  When we fish the rivers we primarily focus on the Jordan River, Boyne River, and Bear River using float fishing tackle with either center pin or spinning gear.  When the fish have not quite made it into the rivers we focus our attention to river mouths, drowned river mouth lakes and the Lake Michigan shoreline using spinning and trolling gear with a variety of tactics including trolling, casting crank baits and spinners and fishing live bait.  Booking your fall salmon trip with Fish With Jim Outfitters ensures that you will be in the best possible water and using the right fish catching technique to have a successful day.  It is not uncommon to catch King Salmon that are over 20 lbs.

 

Northern Michigan Steelhead GuideWinter/Spring Steelhead Fishing

Fish With Jim Outfitters offers trips for Steelhead from winter through the spring just after the Coho and Atlantic Salmon are finishing their annual spawning runs.  By this time there are already some early run steelhead in the rivers that followed the spawning salmon up to feed on the eggs.  As the winter goes on the river temp will eventually exceed the lake temp, this is when big numbers of steelhead begin to make their way up the rivers migrating to their spawning grounds.  We use a variety of techniques on foot and from our heated boat including casting plugs and spinners, dropping plugs or live bait back and float fishing with either a center pin or spinning gear.  We primarily fish the Boardman River, Elk River, Jordan River, Boyne River and Bear River during the run.  Booking your winter/spring steelhead trip with Fish With Jim Outfitters ensures that you will be in the best possible water and using the right fish catching technique to have a successful day.  It is not uncommon to catch Steelhead over 10 lbs.
