If you’re a fisherman, you know that Michigan has some of the best trout streams in the United States.
You’re also most likely familiar with the Kalkaska area’s Manistee River and Lake Skegemog.
Going strong since 1935, the National Trout Festival, celebrates the opening of trout fishing season in Michigan.
Michigan is one of the top trout fishing states in the country.
Trout fishing, carnival rides, petting zoo, Troutzilla, fireworks etc.
The Trout King one year was the retired Chief of River Rouge Police Department & retired sheriff of Kalkaska, David Israel.
