Hello Fishing Friends!!
The steelhead are still here!! With very good numbers of steelhead in the rivers now is a great time to get out. The fishing pressure has been very low and the fishing has been very good! The trout season opens this Saturday and the rivers are high and stained enough to keep angling pressure down. The trout fishing has also started to pick up. We have had a good number of chances at both steelhead and brown trout everyday. With the weather finally warming up the next few weeks should be great fishing. We still have a few open dates in May and June.
NOW IS THE TIME TO ENJOY THE GREAT SPRING FISHING!
Fishing has been very good the past few days. The rivers are in great shape. Todays light rain should bring a fresh push of steelhead!! Lets go fishing!
It feels like old man winter has lost his grip on Michigan. The grouse are drumming and the turkeys are starting to gobble. Spring is here! The river conditions are perfect right now. A bit high and heavy tea stain. We have had very good steelhead fishing the past couple days. A mix of winter fish and fresh spring run steelhead. With this being a late spring, it looks like the steelhead fishing will stay strong well into May. The brown trout fishing has picked up also. As the river temperatures rise the trout fishing will pick up. If you would like to get out and enjoy this great spring I have a couple of days still open in April and a few available in May. It is an amazing time to be on the river.
Old man winter can go away! Let the spring begin. The rivers are in great shape. With the rivers on the drop the fishing keeps getting better. I have been spending most of my days on the Pere Marquette River. There has been a mix of fresh and winter steelhead around. We are finding most of the steelhead in the deeper runs. The brown trout fishing is pretty good. It is nice to have the chance at both steelhead and brown trout on a days float.
We still have a few spring dates open. Now is the time!
Spirng is on its way! Now is the time to be thinking about your spring steelhead trips. With the weather we have had it looks like this spring should be VERY good. LETS GO FISHING!!!!
The Manistee River in the winter is an amazing place to spend the day. The fishing is still pretty good. Both brown trout and steelhead are biting! With the low angling pressure and the beautiful views December is going to be a great month to get out fishing!
It was great to spend the day on the upper Manistee River. Thanks to Stu Hunt for hosting the trip. Also this seasons most improved angler Mike Beliasov. It was very cool to watch Mike hone his casting skills as the day went on.
We fished dry flies all day. Most of the trout came up to stone flies with a couple on sulfurs. The river looks great. Clean and clear. With this warm spell here the dry fly action should be red hot over the next couple of weeks. I am looking forward to some more upper Manistee River action!
Now that we have had a few dry days the rivers are in great shape. The Pere Marquette River and the Pine River are fishing very well. We have had good caddis hatches on the Pere Marquette. The pine has fished good with anything sub surface. The brown trout look great. They seem to be fat and happy. With the dropping and clearing water fishing will stay above average and the dry fly action should get better everyday.
We have a few Pine River days still open. It’s a special place to spend a day fishing. Come join us.
