Captain Max Werkman

Max is a guide and owner at RiverQuest.  He specializes in the coldwater species of Michigan; salmon, trout and steelhead.  He grew up in West Michigan and has basically been fishing since he could walk.  During the summer months he guides in Alaska for Naknek River Camp.

He uses multiple techniques including spey, fly fishing and nymphing to catch the migratory fish.  When he can’t fish he is either thinking about fishing or tying flies.  

No matter your skill level Max is very patient and a great teacher, particularly with fly fishing techniques.
