Women on the Water weekend 2022
July 8 - July 10$500.00
Join us for the third annual Women on the Water weekend getaway! Schrems West Michigan Trout Unlimited Chapter is proud to present 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.)
Friday, July 8
Begin your trip by checking in at Pere Marquette River Lodge between 3-7 pm. We will gather in the main room around 6 pm for introductions and snacks. Social hour will continue with the opportunity for fly tying. Feel free to bring your own equipment and materials if you have them but we will also have plenty available for use.
Saturday, July 9
Start your day of fishing off with breakfast and coffee. Typically, this time of year offers easy wading in the Pere Marquette. You will have the opportunity to fish independently in the morning if desired; those who are interested can go out as group with a facilitator to hone their skills.
We will head back to the lodge for lunch, some rest, and to get geared up for this evening’s fishing. Our Orvis endorsed fly fishing guides will pick us up at 5 pm to catch trout with hoppers and mouse patterns until 1 am! Dinner will be served during the float.
Sunday, July 10
Our final day together will start off easy with sharing fish stories over breakfast and coffee. We will need to check out of rooms by 10 am but feel free to stay longer for more fishing or socialization.
Register by June 10
