i have kinda a silly question. is a "fly only" stretch of river a "catch and release" only stretch also?? Just wondering, because i know that the pm around green cottage is flys only, but i am not sure if it is catch and release.

what i am really looking for is a stretch that is flys only, but you can keep what you catch. Not that i would keep all of what i catch (maybe one), but i would like at least one to bring home.

by going to a flys only section, i am hoping that i would miss alot of the shoulder to shoulder fishing like at tippy. dont know if this would happen or not, but just a thought.

There are only 3 "No Kill" (type 7) streams listed in the 2000 Inland trout guide.
1- the AuSable mainstream from Burton's Landing downstream to Wakeley Bridge in Crawford county.
2- AuSable South Branch from Chase Bridge downstream to Lower High Banks also in Crawford county.
3- Pere Marquette from M-37 downstream to Gleason's Landing in Lake county.
All rivers/streams (or sections of rivers/streams)listed as type 5 or 6 have a daily harvest limit of 2. The minimum size limit for Rainbows and Browns is 12" on type 5 and 15" on type 6. I suggest reading the Inland trout and salmon guide.A county map book can be of help on area you are not familiar with.

Good Luck!

Just FYI not only did they make the PM a no kill zone because of the gravel beds there are still way to many people fishing there I suggest to hike any of the known rivers and find your own spot walk till you see no one else at times this is difficult but really worth your time!!
