Located centrally on the north coast of Lake Michigan, we target the many runs of andronomous fish this lake has to offer. From September through May, trophy sized Salmon, Steelhead, and Brown Trout enter Lake Michigan rivers to start a new life. They take on a new color, shape, and attitude which makes river fishing so exciting. Check out our link Colors of Chrome  above to see for yourself.

Whether you prefer fly fishing, a float rod, or drift fishing we can provide instruction on all methods and guide you to the right tactic for a specific scenario.

Redington is the industry’s leader in affordable high quality fly fishing gear and hold an excellent customer service reputation. I have used their products for years and have chosen to outfit all my clients with Redington wading apparel before their fishing adventure. Clients will also have the opportunity to try out an assortment of Redington,  Sage and St. Croix fly fishing rods and reels. One-handed, switch, spey, and centerpin rods are available to use. 


As owner and guide for Northern Steel Outfitters, my passion for fishing extends far beyond what most people consider normal. In the last 7 years I have averaged over 150 trips on the water each year while still maintaining a full time job and wonderful family. I was born in the Copper Country, a life long Upper Peninsula resident, and moved to Manistique 12 years ago. I have fished over 70 bodies of water in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Manistique is where I now call home. Fishing for me is truly an addiction that I love to share with others. 


I will tailor your trip to your needs and experience level. Whether you are a beginner, novice, or expert, I am confident that I can teach you new techniques or tactics that will make your future trips much more productive and enjoyable. Most trips offered are located within 2 hours of Manistique and many options exist for different weather conditions and water levels. Select trips are also available in the Huron Mountains of Baraga County which include guide service, and all inclusive lodging on one of the best steelhead and trout streams in the Upper Peninsula of Michigian.
