White River Guide Service/Paul D (whiterivergs) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Hello Everyone. I had some time to myself and did some fishing yesterday. I went to various places along the White and hit the holes, runs and came up with a big slice of nothing. I did manage to see a steelhead swim by me so on the bright side I did see a fish. I talked to others on the river and they were doing the same. Well I know its only going to get better with time. The water levels were up a bit so be careful wadding PLEASE. Small stoneflies were hatching/coming out of the water around noon. It was a great day to be out. Thank you (02/27/11)
White River Guide Service/Paul D (whiterivergs) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: I fished yesterday for 4 hours at Podunk and other public access points. The weather man said it was going to be 28 degrees and to me that meant that my guides were not going to ice up every cast(which they didnt). I fished chuck n duck style and I fished with an indicator rig and could not get anything to take my offering. The berometer was on the rise but still low (29.70) and the river was clear and pushing on my waders which made wading a little tricker than norman. Shelf ice was everywere and patches of ice would bump me in the river. Be careful out there !! (01/16/11)
White River Guide Service/Paul D (whiterivergs) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: We had some beautiful weather a few days ago (50's) so I could not sit still without getting out myself and seeing what there was to be had. The water was up ever so slightly but still clear. I used small flies while indicator fishing and caught one 16 inch brown trout. No steelhead at all and my brown trout was a lot better than what other people were doing. They just were not bitting that beautiful day on the White. (01/04/11)
White River Guide Service/Paul D (whiterivergs) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Fished for Steelhead quite abit today. I fished a couple of access points but did not hook into any. (12/10/10)

White River descriptions

White River Guide Service/Paul D (whiterivergs) wrote - Guide trips available-email-whiterivergs@yahoo.com. The White is in good shape. Water temp was 40 degrees. The water was running slightly fast but is wadable as the level of the water is not high. I floated in my pontoon from Hesperia Dam to Podunk. I did not see alot of steelhead but they are in there as well as the suckers. Thank you (03/25/09)
Andy Idema (aidema) wrote - The White river is a hidden treasure among Michigan rivers. The White is situated between the Muskegon and the Pere Marquette Rivers so its often overlooked. Its a great steelhead, salmon, and trout fishery. (06/07/08)
