The Pere Marquette is a "National Wild and Scenic River" by act of Congress, a "Natural River" and "Blue Ribbon Trout Stream" in Michigan. In 1970 the Pere Marquette River system was recognized as one of the few high quality fishing rivers remaining in the nation! This is the largest private holding with 7 MILES of river frontage on the Pere Marquette mainstream, and more than a square mile of land. It is surrounded and protected by vast Federal forests. Because of its size and quality, this may well be the finest trout property east of the Mississippi. Quality hatches of mayflies, caddis, and stoneflies provide tremendous dry fly angling for resident rainbow and brown trout. Spring and fall large steelhead trout and salmon run up the river from Lake Michigan. There's an Adirondacks style Lodge built in 1929 of white ash and wormy chestnut, a Tackle House, Barn, Caretaker’s House, and four newer cabins sited along the river. The trout pond is fed by the river and shaded by large hardwoods. Mineral rights are included. Locals say the fishing is better now than it was in the 1970’s. Today it nurtures large populations of resident brown trout and provides world-class fishing opportunities for steelhead and salmon. The Pere Marquette was the location of the first brown trout introduction in the United States (1884). Rainbow trout were planted in 1885 and these early introductions developed into a self-sustaining migratory steelhead population. This property has been owned by the Cannon family for 67 years, since the early 1950’s. Now it can be yours! MLS#1860044 is just the heart of the property with 5,906 feet of river, 158 acres of land, the historic Lodge, Tackle House, Caretakers House and Barn. MLS#1860043 includes it all. You need to visit and walk the land to experience the beauty, power, and magic of this river! And what are you doing this weekend that sounds like more fun?
