I almost never take fishing trips and have decided maybe I should put one on the calendar. I like the thought of Michigan as it's fairly close for me and I can drive there; possibly take one of my kids too. A do it yourself, trout trip is what I have in mind.
Would anyone like to recommend a River/location that is conducive to fly fishing from foot? I'm not asking for someone's honey hole by any means; just an area "worth the trip." I've entertained the PM in Baldwin as that's where I learned to fly fish 20 some years ago. However, I know that is possibly a busy spot. I think the hex hatch is cool on that body of water.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The Au sable. All three branches are easily wadable. Good info at Gates Lodge.

I second the AuSable out of Grayling MI. Gates Lodge is the more expensive location with river access, a shop and guides available from one location.

Try to time the Hex hatch. It was an experience. Fly fishing in the dark, what could be more fun.
