Finally a break from the cold here in the U.P….

March 2nd, 2008 at 10:01 pm

Finally a break from the cold here in the U.P., it sure feels good to experience some temps in the upper 20’s! This Feb. has been one of the coldest in recent history, an average of 10 degrees colder than normal. Needless to say that our snowpack hasn’t received any meltoff for quite some time, so rivers are running very cold & clear at this time. This may change for a brief time period as the forecast is calling for rain/freezing rain. A small meltoff would be great to help out with getting rid of the large amount of shelf ice that is making fishing tough. Steelhead & resident Trout are present, but challenging conditions have made for some tough fishing. Persistency & patience pays off in cold water winter fishing! Sure feels good to get some big headshakes in the middle of Feburary, a good cure for cabin fever! This next Thursday we will be giving a presentation on "Steelhead & Lake Run Brown Trout of the U.P." @ Colton Bay Outfitters in Ann Arbor @ 6 pm on March 6-a fly tying demo will follow the presentation. Also we will attending the MFFC fly fishing show in Warren, MI on March 8 & 9. Stop by & say hi! The photos below highlight the Eben ice caves- a natural ice formation here in Marquette County. Every Winter these caves are formed by natural springs that seep water over a cliff band. The caves are ever changing with the meltoff as the weather cools & then warms.
