- October 2: Great Lakes Salmon Trip
Trips dates subject to change - will likely be Wed through Sunday in early Oct. through the first week of Oct. based on prior history. We’ll fish the Milwaukee River just a mile or two above Lake Michigan. The exact dates will be set only a couple weeks ahead, as we need to time the King Salmon run. Mostly Kings but may also be Coho salmon along with lake-run rainbows and browns. Sight fishing with easy wading, fish will average 20-30 lbs with some bigger. Heavy rods (10wt) recommended. Can drive or fly - your choice. Will stay in hotel near downtown Milwaukee just minutes from the river. For more information, contact Richard at 970-219-2019.
- October 8: Colorado River Float
Fishing for browns in pre-spawn mode (hungry and aggressive mode) on the Colorado River. For this three-day float trip, you will be able to choose between camping on the river or hotel in Kremmling — your choice. Contact host Mark Miller.
