Hawkins Outfitters Guides are experts in the art and science of fly fishing in Michigan. Hawkins Guides are among the best fishing guides in Michigan. Focusing on fly fishing the Manistee, Pere Marquette, AuSable,and Betsie Rivers along with many inland lakes, smaller lessor known streams and the Lake Michigan inshore areas generally within an hour and half radius from Traverse City, Michigan. Hawkins Guides fish for steelhead, salmon, trout, smallmouth, pike, panfish and carp.

A major difference between most fly shops, guide services and independent guides is the cooperation that Hawkins Guides exhibit between each other. During the prime times when information is king Hawkins Guides check in with each other sharing information about bug location and timing, migration patterns and locations and hot flies and techniques. It is as if, when you are fishing with a Hawkins Guide, you have an entire team out there collecting information to help your specific guide put you in the best position possible to catch fish.michigan fishing guide

Unlike a number of Michigan fishing guides out there, Hawkins Guides don’t guide so that they can fish, they guide because they love it. The challenge and feeling of accomplishment is the reward Hawkins Guides feel when you, the angler have a great day.
