The Au Sable River is home to more than just trophy-winning trout- she has fantastic bass, pike, walleye, perch, pan fish, and salmon fishing further downstream. If you don't have a boat to access the water, there is still ample opportunity to catch fish off of the numerous public docks and trails that lead down to the beautiful river.
Kayaking, canoeing, and tubing are all a great way to explore the Au Sable River. Drift gently down the winding banks of the Au Sable and view the wonderful wildlife she has to offer- from turtles to eagles, a river adventure can be a learning experience for the whole family. Float trips can be organized right through us, and with many different launching and landing points throughout the 138 miles of river we can ensure your next adventure will be one you won't forget!
