    Hello, I am looking for recommendations for a guide for St Marys river Atlantic fishing in late June/early July. Looking for a boat fishing experience- no wading. Thanks!

    Rivers North Guide Service. I have never fished with them, but have seen him catch many fish by the Power Plant while I was fishing from the wall. You can check out his web site at riversnorth.net.

    My son and I fished with John one time on his boat for Atlantics. We were back drifting with flies and also jigging Fin-S minnow. He is very good and we had a very good day!

    I was under the impression the Original Poster was looking for someone on the American side of the River. That is why I did not recommend John.

    If you haven't fished in Canadian water you will soon learn that fishing is a "blood sport" to the locals. Everyone is secretive , cut throat, screw you if it gets an advantage. They are great people if they aren't fishing--see them on the water and watch out. John Giuliani is the best guide on the water, he's usually booked early so you need to act quick. He's on the water every day, I don't know when he sleeps. June/july is the best time to fish the Sault. The atlantic population is stable and they should be available then--if they're there John will get them.
    Don't waste you time targeting other fish. Salmon are virtually non-existent. There is a resident population of rainbow but fishing any trout river in Michigan will get you better results by far. Only thing left is whitefish which can be caught at any time if you know what your doing.

    What's the preferred method for Atlantics? I wouldn't mind trying it this summer.

    You have to be the most pessimistic person I have ever encountered. There is good salmon/trout fishing in the Sault. I live 4 hours away and everytime I go up I wreck fish. Sounds to me you just don’t care much for fishing...

    Atlantic’s in the sault are a riot! Gotta be one of the hardest fighting fish I’ve ever caught for sure! Deff worth pursuing

    How do you fish for them? Trolling spoons? Stickbaits? Jigging? I'd like to make a trip up this year. TY
