Do you geek out on late-night mayfly spinner falls? Are you looking for that heart-pumping explosion from trophy brown trout smashing top water flies in the dark?

If you're into chasing Bronzebacks or stalking Golden Bones, this is the trip for you! Long known as a best-kept secret, the shallow shoals surrounding Waugoshance Point provide harbor for tons of the warmwater trophies. If warmwater fly fishing is new to you, Smallmouth Bass provide for a day of fun on a fly rod. Carp, referred to as a 'trash fish' for years, provides an exciting game of cat and mouse due to their ultrasensitive and spooky nature... but hook one up and the reel screamin', drag rippin' runs will make you come back for more. Combined with the gorgeous views and crystal clear waters of Lake Michigan, untouched by modern human development, this is Lake Michigan flats fishing at its finest!
