Our Waters

EK Preserve

"I'd rather be known as a great fly fisherman..." ~ Everett Kircher, Founder of Boyne Resorts

When resort pioneer Everett Kircher came to Boyne Country to start his ski lodge, he had first pick at the sections of river he wished to stake his claim.  An accomplished angler, Kircher spent years perfecting what is known today as the EK Preserve. Considered the best private-access stretch of blue-ribbon trout stream in Michigan, the EK Preserve' is a gem to both novice and seasoned anglers alike.  Over a mile of beautiful scenery, manicured banks, and amazing riffles and pools, you will be amazed that this exclusive piece of water lies in our backyard.  With its healthy hatches and beautiful trout, the EK Preserve is truly the epitome of a northern Michigan trout stream.

A delicious meal grilled riverside will top off your day. This exceptional place will return you to days gone by.
