View Full Version : Float Trip Ideas.

I just ordered a new Hyde low profile. I am taking the second week of May off of work, and hope to fish as much as possible in 9 days. I know the sections of the PM, and the MO that I want to float. I have floated the trout water above Tippy pond. I am also very familiar with the Trophy water below Mio. What other options do I have in MI for trout in May? I have foated the Bordman in my pontoon boat through Ranch Rudolf, but that seems a little tight to me for a Drift boat. Is the Big Man "drift boatable" below M-72? I took a guide trip on the Jordan last summer in an ausable drift boat, and I don't think that would be a good River for a Hyde either. Any ideas on what would be good floats?

Am I to ***ume that nobody here ever fishes out side of the PM?
I guess I should have said "take for granted". :D

I have not done it, but the BIg M is "drift boatable". I have seen many drift boat's without motors on them, float down. Not sure where they float to, but they float the big m.
Other than that, I can not be of much help.

you can float Tippy to highbridge which takes about 7 hours or longer if you fish it hard.

I took a canoe through the Holy Waters trout fishing last summer, that was a blast.....not sure about the season dates though.
What about the Clinton River? I've heard rumors...

I have not done much in the Big Man, except for a float between the dams last summer, and a few outing below tippy for the big fish. I will look into floating the upper? on the Big Man. As for the Clinton. . . I think I will p***.
I seem to remember Steve saying that he took his boat up to the Two Hearted last year. That had to be a little tight in spots. How was it?
