2023 Women on the Water

Category: Membership Events


You are invited to join us for the fourth annual Women on the Water weekend getaway! Schrems West Michigan Trout Unlimited Chapter proudly presents a women’s only weekend at the Pere Marquette River Lodge, an Orvis Endorsed Outfitter with a fully stocked fly shop.

The PM Lodge is located along the banks of one of Michigan’s most prized blue-ribbon trout streams – the Pere Marquette River in Baldwin. Beginners welcome, intermediate and experienced fly-fishing ladies will also find this trip fun and informative. Support the TU Women’s Initiative and register today! (Group is limited to the first 20 registrants.)


Arrive at the lodge on Friday afternoon or evening. Saturday is our full-day float trip. We are hoping for mayfly hatches so we can cast dry flies but may also use streamers or nymphs for trout based on conditions. Check-out is late morning on Sunday. Most meals are provided, including something special for Mother’s Day.
