Michigan's Boyne Outfitters extend service to Hidden River Golf and Casting Club

BOYNE FALLS, Mich. -- Boyne Outfitters, a full service fly shop based at Boyne Mountain Resort in Boyne Falls, is expanding guide services to Hidden River Golf & Casting Club in Brutus beginning May 15. Boyne Outfitters will offer anglers insider knowledge of this private access stretch of the Maple River with full-day walk and wade fly fishing guide service, which also includes a riverside meal at the club's Rainbow Room Restaurant.

Hidden River Golf & Casting Club offers the best private access to the Maple River, considered one of the premier trout streams in northern Michigan. Secluded and shaded by towering pines, hardwoods, and bluffs, this section of river is the perfect habitat for brook, brown and rainbow trout.

"The Maple River is known as one of the area's best kept secrets," says Ethan Winchester, head guide and shop manager at Boyne Outfitters. "We're extremely excited for the opportunity to showcase this pristine stretch of water."

Guide service at Hidden River Golf & Casting Club is $400 for six hours of guided fly fishing for up to two guests with lunch or dinner included. Avid fly anglers can also purchase a day pass and fish on their own for $69 per person or $49 if golfing within 24-hours. Day passes are limited to four per day. A limited number of membership opportunities are also available providing fishing access, friends and family passes, shop discounts, and more.

Boyne Outfitters opened last summer in the Village at Boyne Mountain and offers walk and wade excursions, traditional trout and scenic floats, private instruction, and custom experiences. In addition to the Maple River, Boyne Outfitters provides guide services at the Everett F. Kircher Private Trout Preserve, as well as the Boyne, Jordan, Pigeon, Sturgeon, and Upper Manistee rivers. Custom guide trips for warm water fly fishing are also available.
