Chromeseekers – Betsie River

When it’s time for a bit of relaxation in nature, Chromeseekers is here for you. Join Captain Dan on a fishing trip in the Betsie River, near Frankfort, MI. Few things are more enjoyable than a few hours in these serene waters. Leave everyday life behind and step into a new world!

Your trip takes place aboard a 15’ Stealthcraft drift boat. This stable vessel is perfect for up to 2 anglers and you’ll have your captain’s undivided attention. Since you won’t have to travel far for a great fishing spot, there’s no need for electronics or strong engines.

The Salmon start entering the river in mid to late August and end around mid October. On the Betsie where I fish, peak season is usually between September 7 - 25 on the Betsie. Where I fish on the Big Man it’s best between September 25 - 10. Fishing is not always based on the calendar and runs can happen anytime between August and October. If the fishing is poor on the river you chose, the captain will make suggestions to fish the other river.

Steelhead start up the rivers in October and last til May. Peak times are Mid Oct - November and March and April. Pike fishing is good June - August.

Salmon trips available are 4, 6, and 8 Hour trips. Steelhead trips are 5 and 8 hours. Pike are 3 and 5 hour.

Although it’s not recommended, I can take 3 people for Salmon for $100. On The Betsie, someone needs waders.

Sorry, a third person option is not available for steelhead.

Capt. Dan will fully cover your fishing equipment and even bring a lunch of burgers or Bratwurst sausages to keep you going if you book an 8 hour trip. You’ll need to purchase a fishing license in advance and bring any drinks you’d like to enjoy.

After the trip, Capt. Dan is happy to clean your catch if you choose to keep a fish. We ask that you consider the future of our fishery and don’t keep limits. We ask that you release all steelhead.

Captain Dan Stewart has been fishing for as long as he can remember. From SE Michigan to NW Michigan, we have a boat for everything. As a result, he knows all the hiding spots for favorites including Steelhead, Chinook, Coho Salmon and walleye throughout the state of Michigan. He'll easily accommodate both experienced anglers and novices and looks forward to giving his guests a welcome escape to nature. You will have such a great time with Captain Dan that you will be booking other trips the rest of the year around the great state of Michigan.
