Episode #3 of The DrakeCast follows guide Donnie Richards down Michigan’s Pere Marquette River. Along the way, we learn the history of the river, challenge a Michigan DNR fisheries biologist, and discover what makes the Pere Marquette River great.
DONNIE’S ELEVENTH HOUR PM PRIZE
Special thanks to Preston Marson and Brian Weir for their hospitality.
Donnie Richards at the Old Au Sable Fly Shop is the man and knows the PM as well as anyone. If you’re looking for steelhead on the Pere Marquette or trout on the Au Sable or Upper Manistee, look him up.
Cheers to Mark Tonello and all the work he does for Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources.
