Many streams are holding their water longer than normal this season due to the heavy snowpack we had in addition to rainfall.  Steelhead fishing has been fair to good, as wide range of dropbacks to new arrivals are available. Resident Brook and Brown Trout have been becoming more active with the warming water temps. Congrats to our recent guests on some fantastic fish!

Spring is here in the UP!

April 17th, 2019 at 9:08 am

Spring fishing is under way here in the Upper Peninsula! Steelhead have been making their way into our streams and resident Trout have been getting more active. Snow levels are finally diminishing and rains are happening on a frequent basis. Look for Steelhead and Trout Fishing to get better as water temps increase.

Midwinter in the UP

January 24th, 2019 at 10:46 am

Midwinter conditions exist across the UP at this time for open water fishing opportunities.  It has been a fair winter so far & some descent fishing has been available. Steelhead and Lake Run Brown Trout have dominated the catch w the odd Coho thrown in the mix.  Polar vortex headed our way tomorrow, so not much fishing will be happening for a while.

Winter is here

November 15th, 2018 at 2:30 pm

An early winter has greeted us here in the UP, frigid temps and snow! Seems as if we pretty much fast forwarded from November to mid December at this point. Regardless of the weather some good fishing has been available. Steelhead, Brown Trout and Coho are present in rivers across the region. Some absolutely remarkable fish are around this fall, congrats to Marty on a certified 17 lb Steelhead -pictures below! A trophy anywhere that Steelhead swim! Congrats to rest of our recent guests as well on some phenomenal fish, quite a fall!

October 3rd, 2018 at 10:32 am

Finally feeling like autumn here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, crisp morning & colors in the forest.  The fishing that is available in the fall is so unique. Muskie to Trout or Salmon, something for everyone to enjoy. This fall’s Muskie fishing has been very rewarding, many personal bests. Congrats to our guests on some highly remarkable fish!

Fall is in the air here in the Upper Peninsula, some fun fishing opportunities are here! Heavy rains recently brought river levels up big time, but now we are back at normal flows. Currently Pike & Muskie fishing has been getting better with cooling water temps. We have had a very warm late summer & water temps have been quite high. Some salmon are available in the rivers as well, more rain coming some fishing should improve. Some fall colors are also beginning in certain areas of the UP.

A favorite time

August 21st, 2018 at 4:46 pm

Summer continues here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and a fun variety of fishing options are available. Water temps are warm everywhere, it has been one of the warmest summers I can remember here. Smallmouth Bass fishing has been outstanding, ideal conditions exist with topwater and subsurface being productive. Fishing on the St Marys river has been tough at times but rewarding

U.P. Mid summer fishing report

August 6th, 2018 at 4:33 pm

Summer keeps rolling on here in the UP and the warm days continue. It has definitely been one of the hottest summers on record.  Some well needed rains have blessed us recently, drought conditions were present prior to this in many areas of our region. On the St Marys River Atlantic Salmon are available, mid summer conditions exist. Inland Trout fishing has been slow on most streams other than spring fed creeks. Congrats to our guests on some downright fish on a lifetime recently!
