Welcome to the Gray Drake Lodge and Outfitters! For eighteen years, Matt and Laurie Supinski together with their excellent team of guides and the rest of their professional staff have prided themselves in offering the very best in fly fishing, guiding, lodging and hospitality period. Every picture on this site tells a part of the whole story with a smile! Our professional guides take great pleasure in fishing with seasoned veterans. But they excel in teaching new anglers from beginners, novices, children and families, to guiding advanced experts. We specialize in guiding 12 months a year-not just when the fish are on gravel in the spring and fall.
Why? - because we have a passion and an understanding of how trout, steelhead and salmon and their rivers behave throughout the bountiful four season wonderland of the Great Lakes. We tie and invent our own fly patterns and study the insect hatches so we can bring the magic of taking a fish on the fly to you in a special way. With our broad experience of fishing throughout North America and the world, our goal is to exceed your expectations and have you walking away having learned or perfected your techniques, catching fish and enjoying a refreshing day in nature. With this, we hope for you to yearn for a return visit to the Gray Drake Lodge.
Having pursued Steelhead, Trout, Pacific and Atlantic Salmon for over 48 years throughout the world, proprietor and guide Matthew Supinski and his wife Laurie and excellent team, have intrinsic knowledge of the fish species and the techniques for success.
Through his book authorships, free-lance magazine writings and photography. Matt Supinski is in touch with the most progressive methods, techniques and tackle. Having been born and raised in the Great Lakes, Matt and his outstanding Pro Staff guides will proudly and enthusiastically guide you to the incredible angling experience, and the Silver and Brown bounty our waters provide.
