From mainstays Au Sable, Pere Marquette, Muskegon and Manistee rivers to hidden gems such as the Rabbit and Red Cedar rivers, Osborn has put in the river-time so that you can get down to business. Many more forks and tributaries are covered, including trout, steelhead, salmon, bass and pike fisheries.
This book features precise and detailed full-color maps, with GPS coordinates for all access points, boat ramps and parking areas, along with access roads, public land and more. As Lefty Kreh once said: “If someone can’t find locations from these maps—they need to stay home.”
