Flyfishing pictures from Michigan's Rifle River. October, November and December are excellent months for trout, steelhead, salmon and lake run browns on the Rifle River. For spring steelhead April and May is the time to come. Beautiful river to float with very few anglers!
Fall is a great time to fly fish the lower Rifle River. This time of year there are steelhead, salmon, resident trout and lake run browns in the river!
Oct. 14th - A fresh run Chinook Salmon in the lower Rifle River.
November & December are excellent times to fly fish the Rifle for fall steelhead. This river does not get many anglers in the fall and this river does typically get some nice lake run browns.
October & November - The upper Rifle River is a excellent place to streamer fish for resident trout.
The Rifle gets a excellent run of spring and fall steelhead. April is prime time in the Spring and November/December are prime times in the Fall.
Stopping for lunch on a spring steelhead float. Multiple boat trips are not a problem.
