Pine River

Winter with Capt. Billy!

Hello Fishing Friends!!!!

With the winter weather being so cold off I went to Florida. I was fortunate to get to fish with one of the best fishing guides in Charlotte Harbor. Capt. Billy Barton. He went out of his way to show me and good friend Steve Bartz an amazing couple of days on the harbor!

Now its time to get focused on the spring steelhead and brown trout. With all the snow and cold weather the fish have had little to no pressure. The fishing this spring should be lights out!

Now is the time to reserve your days.

Spring Fishing

Brown TroutNow 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.

Pine River Trout

Pine River, FawnNow that the steelhead season has come to a close we would like to thank everyone that fished with us this spring. It was great to get to spend the day catching up with you and catching fish.

We are currently fishing the Pine River. The river was in great shape, that is before last night monsoon. The pine is in flood stage but should crest tomorrow. It was nice to see the water up and flushing out the river. We should be back in full swing in the next couple of days. As the river drops and clears fishing should be lights out.

We only have a few trout days open in May. With this new shot of water May will be great fishing. If you’re looking to get out now is the time to book.

Thank you again for the great spring!
