Fall fishing in the Yooperland!

October 10th, 2017 at 4:55 pm

Finally some dropping temps here in the Upper Peninsula, nice to see after such a warm trend.  Steelhead and Salmon numbers vary widely from river to river but regardless some nice opps are available. A nice rain came down on Saturday which has bumped up river levels. Thanks to all our guests & congrats on some great fish!





Is it Fall??

Some really weird weather patterns going on U.P. here this autumn.  One week temps in the 50’s then the next in the 80’s. I’ve always thought of September as another month of summer, no need to rush into winter in my opinion!  The weather has been conducive to many different types of fishing, so why not mix  it up? Congrats to our guests on some awesome fish this past week or so!






Early Autumn in the U.P.

Burr, fast forward to fall fishing it seems like here in the Upper Peninsula!  Kinda the trend of our summer with the cool temps and now it is continuing into September.  Our cooler summer has had Trout fishing going strong with some fantastic terrestrial opps. Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike and Muskie fishing has been slow some days then very strong on others. Fish are  definitely starting to react to our cooking water trend.

Summertime in the U.P., such a wonderful time to visit this region!  Daytime temps in the mid 70’s lately w little to no rain has had conditions pretty ideal. Water temps have been a bit lower than normal this year so far but some nice hatching have still been occurring.  Some good fishing has been available with some world class fish to the net.

Well, as of lately water levels have been extremely high for this time period of the fishing season.   Some Trout fishing opportunities do exist, but most of our rivers are running on the extreme high side of things. Adjusting to conditions is a critical part of fishing, with so many options here in the upper peninsula region we are never at a loss.  Congrats to our guests on some absolutely fantastic fish as of recently!







Summer fly fishing in the Upper Peninsula

June 5th, 2017 at 10:10 pm

It’s finally starting to feel a lot like summer here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  It was a fast start to spring but cold temperatures have had us a little bit behind schedule as of lately with our fishing across the board.  We have been seeing some insect activity that has been bringing some nice trout to the surface for some feeding as of lately. The dry fly fishing has been a bit day today as hatches seem to be sporadic with the fluctuating temperatures.   Regardless it is nice to see trout sipping off the surface for their meal, a pleasant sight after fishing subsurface for so long.  Great Lakes fishing has also provided some excellent opportunities for our guests, a variety of species have been active which provides some exciting opportunities.

Spring is here in the U.P..

  1. A nice variety of fishing exists right now across the Upper Peninsula region.    Brook Trout have started becoming more active with the warming water temperatures, near shore Great Lakes fishing as provided some fun and some steelhead are still available in the rivers. Water levels have dropped considerably and are still remaining cool with our colder temperatures we have been experiencing.    Some decent insect activity has been happening during some daytime hours, Hendrickson’s as well as Caddis have been bringing some trout to the surface.  Being at the right place at the right time has been key to success!





Steelhead fishing in the U.P.

May 1st, 2017 at 1:24 pm

Steelhead fishing has been productive recently, also a few resident Brook & Brown Trout are becoming active.  Heavy rains & cold weather have our streams up/cold for the most part across the Upper Peninsula.  Many Steelhead have already spawned at this point but have remained in the rivers due to the higher water conditions.  More rain today will further increase water flows and in some areas rivers are near flood stage.  Congrats to our recent guests on some great fish, nice work!
