Ausable River

Fly fishing at its best! This world famous river has crystal waters and plenty of boulders where the fish like to hide. There is hand access at points along Route 86 and along side roads near the river. The river is not boat navigable in most places.

Of course, the river is alive with brook trout. Rainbow and brown trout are also present.
