Boyne Outfitters Fly Fishing Pro Shop and Guide Service
Boyne Outfitters is situated at the heart of the Midwest's "Golden Triangle" of fly fishing. Not only does northern Michigan offer amazing access to miles of pristine blue-ribbon trout streams, but this is also the land of legends. Hemingway spent his summers here just up the road. 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!
Everett E Kircher Private Trout Preserve
The best the Boyne River has to offer lies in the waters of the Everett E Kircher Private Trout Preserve. This hidden gem is the epitome of a northern Michigan trout stream. Exceptional hatches and beautiful trout abound in the crystal clear water of the Preserve. With beautiful scenery abound, manicured lawns, and amazing runs and riffles, you will be amazed that this private section of water lies in our backyard. A grilled shore lunch of dinner will top off your day. This exceptional place will return you to day gone by.
Resort guests are welcome to fish for bluegill, bass, and trout in the pond located at the base of Boyne Mountain. Fishing poles are complimentary to guests and available at Boyne Outfitters.
