2017 Fall Schedule

Fall is a wonderful time to be a Sportsman in Northern Michigan.  The weather turns mild as the tress turn color and the streams and woodlots become lonely.  Time spent here in September, October, and November, and December can be like time spent on a private preserve.

The fishing is generally with wet flies and can be very good.  Brown Trout and Brook Trout spawn in the Fall and the pre-spawn and post-spawn bite can be rewarding and a float down the Au Sable River is worthwhile if only to enjoy the Fall Colors.

Best of all, we have some of the best upland game hunting in the Midwest.  Michigan boasts the highest numbers of Woodcock in the country and our Ruffed Grouse habitat is fantastic. 

With that in mind, we wanted to offer some new and interesting Guided opportunities.  This is the sort of stuff we do with our friends and family—we’d like to share some of it with you.

FALL COLOR TOUR:

Take a relaxing trip down the gentle Au Sable River and enjoy its beauty.  This is not a fishing trip so no need for waders.  Just dress in your most comfortable clothes, pack some snacks, and bring your camera. 

The trip will cover 3-4 miles of our River and will last 2-3 hours.

Cost is $140. 

Reservations by appointment.

FALL STREAMER TRIP:

This is a stripped down, go get ‘em trip just like we do when the guides fish together in the Fall.  The goal is to cover a lot of water and to cast constantly.  There’s no lunch included except for what you put in your pockets at the gas station.  We’ll fish hard for 4-6 hours.  A great time but not for the faint of heart.

Cost is $295.

Reservations by appointment.

UPLAND BIRD HUNTING:

We’re thankful we don’t have to make a choice, here in Northern Michigan, between Upland Bird Hunting and Trout Fishing.  We have great opportunities for each. 

We’d like to offer Guided trips for Grouse and Woodcock behind pointing dogs.  

Full Day Trips are 5-7 hours and include lunch.  Half day trips are 3-4 hours without lunch included.

Cost is $450 for a Full Day and $325 for a half day.

Reservations by appointment.

CAST AND BLAST TRIP:

If you truly want to maximize your outdoor time while in Northern Michigan this Fall, you may want to consider our Upland Hunting and Trout Fly Fishing combination packages.  You truly get the best of both worlds.

We offer One Day Packages and well as Two Day Packages.

To do both in one day entails a Half Day Fishing Trip and a Half Day Upland Bird Hunting Trip.  It’s a busy day so two guides will split the duties.  You’ll hunt in the morning, have lunch on your own, and fish with a different guide in the afternoon.  You’ll be guaranteed to sleep well that night.

Cost is $575.

Reservations by appointment.

CALL 989.348.3330 OR E-MAIL info@oldausable.com TO BOOK

The Two Day Package includes a Full Day Upland Bird Hunt as well as Full Day Guided Fishing Trip.  We’ll spend a good long day with each pursuit and lunch is included.

Cost is $800.00.
