Gouker Fly Fishing offers a wide range of fly fishing opportunities on the Big Manistee, Little

Manistee, and Pine rivers. We are located in the middle of Michigan’s Huron-Manistee National

Forests, and just minutes away from the waters we guide. Gouker Fly Fishing is a four season,

full time guide service, that offers both full and half day fishing opportunities. Trout, Smallmouth

Bass, Northern Pike, Salmon, and Steelhead are all available, and make great targets for the fly angler.

We take great pride in teaching all aspects of fly fishing and helping to preserve the rivers

through the practice of catch and release. Whether you are a new to the sport, or an

experienced angler, nothing gives us more satisfaction than watching a client have a fly fishing experience of a lifetime.

Owner and guide of 18 years, John Gouker is a lifetime angler, fly tyer, professional fly fishing

guide, and fly fishing instructor. John lives in Irons, Michigan with his wife Chasity, his son Ajae, their Chesapeake Bay retriever, Baylor, and Lab, Quill. John specializes in walk or float trips on the Little Manistee River, and enjoys chasing all types of cold and warm water species, from trout to smallmouth. John fished extensively in his native Nevada, as well as northern California, Oregon, and Vancouver Island (British Columbia.) He has also travelled to fish the Patagonia region in Chile, Alaska, and the north shore of Lake Superior in Ontario, Canada.
