WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING?

The Ausable river valley is noted for a wide range of weather conditions, often in one 24 hour time period. Be sure to plan accordingly. Rob's personal advice is to always bring one more layer than you think you will need. Also bring:

  • Waders, Rain Jacket, and a spare set of dry clothes in your vehicle is recommended on likely rainy days.

  • Hat, Sunscreen or other sun protection; gators, gloves

  • Insect repellent (Mosquitos are the state bird of Michigan)

  • Polarized sunglasses, both dark and amber lenses if you have them.

  • Camera, phone

  • Personal equipment if you choose; rods, reels, favorite flies.

  • Medications if needed.
