Wet cool Spring weather has been on the menu here in the U.P. over the past few days. Rivers are currently running high, but cold & clear for the most part. Steelhead are still present in many rivers across upper Michigan with most fish either finishing up their spawning or spawned out. A few chrome Steelhead are still being caught since water temps are still only in the mid 40’s. If this cool weather keep up we should have Steelhead around in fishable #’s for a while. This past week Jeff from Ohio landed a very rare catch- a Springer Chinook that surprised us to say the least(see pic below). A few of these fish are caught every year on the Great Lakes tributaries, all are females for some reason. On the west coast (Pacific Ocean) a very reliable run of these fish enter the rivers every Spring. Quite the battle in heavy Spring runoff conditions! Resident Brook Trout and Brown Trout fishing has been steadily picking up as the water temps have been rising. Today I saw the first rising Brook Trout of the year, a pleasant sight after fishing subsurface for 6 months! As water temps warm the biggest Brook Trout of the season will be on the hunt for an easy meal-it’s time for Trout fishing in the U.P.!
