All resort lodging guests are invited to make complimentary use of our cane fishing rods, and to try their luck on the pond. So stop by the Adventure Center, pick up a rod, and cast to your heart's content in the ponds located near the Main Lodge. With a little luck, you may return home with a story of the one that didn't get away!

Trout Unlimited was formed a few miles over on the Au Sable. Leonard Halladay created the Adams fly down the Boardman. We are at the heart of it all. Stop by and let our friendly and knowledgeable staff at Boyne Outfitters get you set up for your next big adventure on the water!
The professionals at Boyne Outfitters are available for private casting lessons upon request. Please call 231.549.6064 to make advance reservations.
