Book Your Trip Today

Werkman Outfitters is an Orvis Endorsed Outfitter. We offer both fly and spin gear fishing trips. Come fish a unique urban fishery on the Grand River, in and near Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Fishing the Grand River is unique. It’s an urban fishery. Our fishing guides offer spin and fly fishing trips in both the remote solitude, in the Ada and Lowell sections, to the fast pace rapids of downtown Grand Rapids.

So come and fish for salmon, steelhead, smallmouth bass and northern pike and experience all that Grand Rapids and West Michigan have to offer with us.

Michigan offers the angler some of the best freshwater fishing opportunity in the country. Based on certain times of year, you’ll find Werkman Outfitters fishing with clients throughout West Michigan, from in and around Grand Rapids on the Grand River to the White River in north central Newaygo County and on the Muskegon River in Muskegon. 

Whether you are looking to learn new spin or fly fishing techniques from our fishing guides or enjoy time on one of the great bodies of water in West Michigan, Captains Max and Tom Werkman will make you feel like a pro.  

Can’t tell a smallmouth from a steelhead? A pike from a pickerel? Don’t worry! Our goal is to give you an experience that is relaxing, rewarding and fun.
