Wondering where to stay?

 We recommend the Newaygo Cottage. This cozy cottage is directly on the Muskegon River. We have the ability to pick you up right out the back door of the cottage. We try to make your trip as easy as possible. After all, it is your time off! No meeting place, no driving directions to the boat launch. Walk out the door and get in the boat.


We also recommend the River Valley House, this cottage is also directly on the Muskegon River. We will pick you up on the river, no waiting, meeting, or driving. Walk out the door and into the best fishing experience in Michigan!









West Michigan Guide Service is a family run outfit. We have spent countless days on the water with family and friends and loved every second of it. We enjoy teaching our skills to others to enjoy for years to come. From fly fishing with the kids to Bass fishing with the Pro’s, we have done it all. We primarily fly fish on West Michigan’s pristine rivers, but our skills are not limited to fly fishing. We are not too proud to pick up a spinning rod and throw a few spinners for trout.

We have toured the world in search of a new adventure. Nate is a proven successful veteran with a bait caster and Jason cannot stay off the hard water in the winter! Although we specialize in river fishing our skills are far from limited to the river. Whatever the conditions call for we can adapt to make sure we stay in hot pursuit of the big ones. So book your next trip with West Michigan Guide Service, West Michigan’s Elite Guide Service.
