Marsh Ridge River Guide Service, Building Memories That Last A Lifetime!
Our goal at Marsh Ridge River Guide Service is to provide solid customer service and environmental education to each individual client. We know the importance of catch and release when the fish are spawning. They are a crucial part of the river ecosystem, and proper and humane handling of the fish will ensure us of continued spectacular fishing in the future. Please release pre-spawning and spawning fish to help protect this sport!
See Marsh Ridge River Guide Service on Fox 17. We recently met up with Mike Avery and Sarah Brodhead of Fox 17 morning news. This was part of the One Tank Trip segment. We fished the Muskegon River and had a great day.
Thanks Mike and Sarah! Check out the video on the left to see our fishing trip.
Marsh Ridge River Guide Service Works along with five full time river guides available under US Forest Service Permit #593, with access to the following rivers: the Pere Marquette River, the Big Manistee River, the White River, the Pine River, and the Little Manistee River. All those guides also fish the Muskegon River. If you enjoy Big Manistee River winter steelhead fly fishing, plug fishing, bottom bouncing or fall thunder sticking, our guides are experienced in all of these and can provide you with a professional, personal and enjoyable fishing experience.
What ever it might be, our guides have a Michigan fly fishing package for you: King Salmon, Steelhead, and Brown Trout on the Big Manistee River, Muskegon River, or Michigan's Blue Ribbon Trout Stream, the Pere Marquette River (also known as The PM River). Our guides can provide a fly fishing trip for your needs. Handicap accessibility provided when there is a 2nd helper. Remember Michigan fly fishing on the Pere Marquette River for your next business trip.
Fly Fishing the Pere Marquette River in Baldwin, Michigan
Wanted share some photos from our trip this past weekend. My wife and I floated the PM with Mike Marsh from Marsh Ridge guiding service. I cannot say enough about Mike and his guiding abilities. He is an honest guy and knows the river and her secrets well. We look forward to many trips with him again in the future. He even served us NY strip steaks on the grill, right on the river bank. I would recommend him to anyone. I will include his contact info We had many hook ups and I included a photo of a giant we landed on the fly. The Salmon are VERY BIG this year, I’m not kidding!
Thanks for the fishing trip of a lifetime! My father-in-law and I could not have had a better time fishing the Muskegon River with you. Thanks for putting us on some great fish and grilling us a five-star riverside meal. Incredible! See you in the fall for Steelhead!
Had a great time on our late April Steelhead trip. With as late in the run as we were you still managed to put us on some great fish. For so late in the run you really worked hard for us and your instincts were right on as to where the fish would be. Had a great time and we'll look forward to fishing with you again in the fall.
Dear Mike, The two days I spent with you on the PM were the best fishing days I ever had. Hooking into 40 Steelies in the full sun was amazing. I enjoyed learning the indicator technique, having a hard time at first, my hard work and your expert coaching lead to fish eventually being netted. I really respect your knowledge of the river, having spotted fish after fish that boats in front of us didn't even see. Hope to fish again soon, drag screaming.
You are one of the best guides for stream knowledge. And I will always remember the three days we fished together on the PM fly water. You are a great guy, a great guide & a great fisherman. And know I'll see you again. Love the PM fly water.
