A Fishing Guide Service like no other!

West Michigan Guide Service is a family run outfit. We have spent countless days on the water with family and friends and loved every second of it.

We enjoy teaching our skills to others to enjoy for years to come. From fly fishing with the kids to Bass fishing with the Pro’s, we have done it all.


We primarily fish on West Michigan’s pristine rivers, but our skills are not limited to fly fishing we are experts with a Centrepin and float/drift/bobber fishing.

We have toured the world in search of a new adventure. Nate is a proven successful veteran.


Although we specialize in river fishing our skills are far from limited to the river. Whatever the conditions call for we can adapt to make sure we stay in hot pursuit of the big ones. So book your next trip with West Michigan Guide Service, West Michigan’s elite guide service.


" I grew up like most fishing panfish & suckers with grandpa at about age 8 I was introduced to salmon & steelhead since then I've strived to be the best I can chasing the 2 species that I fell in love with. I love to use Centerpin gear for both salmon and steelhead , growing up on the banks of the muskegon River I grew a unhealthy passion for fishing and on my days off you can find me fishing something somewhere from river salmon & steelhead to trolling lake Michigan.
