For those that may not know, Boyne USA is looking to relicense their hydro dam on the Boyne River.

The Boyne River has historically been a public river... with a major problem on its shores. Currently Boyne Mountain Resort owns much of the adjacent land surrounding the river and despite being told by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to provide adequate public access to the waters, they have failed to do so since their last license was instated.

Boyne Outfitters treats the waters as a private resource while also asking the DNR to stock their ponds and waters (public resources) with fish which they can charge $750 a trip to catch on their 'Exclusive EK waters' "Exclusive access available only through Boyne Outfitters."

It is obvious that BoyneUSA has not interest in the proper management of the hydro dam nor honoring the rulings that deem the Boyne River as a public waterway. They have failed to provide adequate access points on the river, failed to provide adequate monitoring and protocols for dam management, and disregarded the affects of their actions downstream where local access if more available.

They should not be allowed to relicense their facility until they have shown that they will fix the wrongs they have caused to such a historic public stream.

As summer fades to fall, what has you getting outside?

Check out this photo essay from Greg Frey, a fishing guide with Boyne Outfitters. He and his daughter savored one last trip together on the river in this special piece.

Had a great morning up at Waugoshance on Saturday. Thanks to Drew and Dylan for good flies and intel. Can't wait to go back!

Summer Adventure Camp is here, and our little campers got to reel in some big ones with Boyne Outfitters this morning. 🎣
Wood is good for fishing, wood oars are better for rowing. We’ve been hand-making them since 1967. #teamsawyer #thefeelofwater #madeinoregon #thechoiceofproguidessince1967 📸 Boyne Outfitters Adipose Boatworks #Repost @boyneoutfitters with @get_repost

This reminds me of a gent that came into Boyne Outfitters to buy an Ugly Stick from @trout_bum_tim • The guy told Tim he needed a heavy duty rod and asked Tim if we had any rods that wouldn’t break... “ya know, like Ugly Stick”. Tim, like a well-intentioned guide, asked the sport what he was fishing for. He replied “...brook trout.” 🤦‍♂️🤣
Who is that sexy guy in the KILT??

From Ethan Wi******er with Boyne Outfitters:

The Michigan State University Glassen Scholars program is a visit I look forward to each year.

The students start with a visit to Petoskey Plastics for a plant tour and to discuss post-consumer recycling and giving back to the community.

Then, along with Al Stewart (Michigan Department of Natural Resources), I join them at Maple River Farm for a property tour and to discuss the importance of habitat management, early successional forests, and other Ruffed Grouse Society principles.

The students then travel to Boyne Mountain Resort where Boyne Outfitters gives a short presentation on commercial use of public trust resources, giving back in regards to conservation in ways such as Trout Unlimited, and a fly fishing casting instructional.

The students then finish the day with a chairlift ride to the top of the Mountain which overlooks the Boyne valley.

These are our future natural resources leaders. A great program with great students. A BIG thank you to Pat Olds Stewart for her years of service to this program!

Our new location is pretty sharp, if we do say so ourselves, but we’re happy with what we’ve done with the old place.

Boyne Outfitters is located on Village Lane ground level (downstairs/next door of the old store). The North Face is located in our old location at the top of the stairs and also directly through Boyne Country Sports.

Just another great transformation happening at Boyne Mountain Resort!

New week, new store. ✨

You know about white noise… but, have you heard about brown noise? With the frequencies elevated on the bass end, the lower rumble of brown noise is similar to what you experience wading in your favorite river. And just like white noise, the comforting effects are remarkable. Now you know!

Don’t forget to take it all in while exploring new waters.

It’s always a good time on the river when you’re with your buddies!

Time on the water provides a great opportunity to relax. By disconnecting from the rest of the world, you’re able to reconnect with nature and the solitude it provides.

Sunshine or rain - we fish! Dry dropper rigs did the trick after a little pressure change. Keying in on the subsurface is where we found success.

At Boyne, we are constantly innovating. And at Boyne Outfitters, we are always looking for the next best adventure for our guests. We’ve heard your requests, and we’ve seen how you and you families love Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark.

So, we came together with the Boyne Mountain Ops crew and we’re proud to announce the ‘Wet & Wild Wilderness Adventure’! This 1.3 mile loop diversion of the Boyne River has been channeled into a torrent loop - think Lazy River - that has been stocked to support 100,000 trout per mile - the highest of any section of trout water in the United States. The guide doesn’t even have to row and only focuses on fixing knots, netting big trout, and keeping the cocktails flowing…with a healthy amount of “Yea, brah!”’s & “Rad, dude!”’s. Over the course of 4 hours, you’ll complete the loop 26 times and catch more big fish than you can shake a stick at!

“Jac has given us a clear and concisely written memoir of his vast angling experience wrapped up in a wonderful piece of reference material that anglers of all skill sets can utilize for success on the water.” - Rich Strolis
“He’s a total original, cutting his own path, and an out-of-the-box thinker which makes him a great teacher and guide.” - Kelly Galloup
“Jac Ford is far too humble a man to ever say it himself, but he is a Midwest icon that has likely forgotten more about our sport than most ever figure out in the first place.” - Mike Schmidt
