Grayling, Michigan is located in the middle of Michigan's Lower Peninsula, billed as the 'gateway to the north.' Located in the mid-west, the Au Sable River is truly one of America's greatest rivers. It is a world class trout stream with easy wading and dependable hatches. The watershed contains brook and rainbow trout but is best known for its world class brown trout fishing. Once a nucleus for the logging industry and later catering to the rich and famous for the now extinct 'grayling' it is still a fishing mecca for thousands of trout fishermen from most every country in the world many of whom come for our famous 'hex' hatch.
