  • River Report June 24, 2915

    The Old Au Sable Fly Shop Fishing Report June 24, 2015 It’s the end of June and there’s only one word that fly fishermen want to hear—Hex.  The long fabled, Michigan Hexagenia Limbata hatch is the stuff of legend.  Over the years, legions of fly anglers worldwide have come to our beloved Crawford County to ply the waters and try their luck on our streams and to match wits with the thick shouldered and rarely fooled trophy brown trout of the Au Sable and Manistee Rivers....
