Da Trout Season

May 25th, 2011 at 6:55 pm

Caddis, Midges & Hendricksons are bringing some Trout to the surface here across the U.P.. Some hatches have been downright epic producing a quality rise as other rivers have seen only minimal rising Trout with little insect activity.  Some River levels are rather high with all the rain we have seen lately and resident Trout have been well fed with all the natural food available due to the high water levels.  Forecast is calling for some warmer temps after this upcoming holiday weekend, this should get the hatches in full swing soon for the dry fly enthusiast.  Pictured below are the colors of a U.P. Trout season!

Thanks to all Veterans on this Memorial Day!

Wet windy weather over the course of this past week has us with some water levels that are much better than they were at this time last season (drought).  Some Steelhead are still available for those that still have the bug, but our focus is more on resident Trout now.  Limited amounts of Caddis, Stoneflies, & BWO’s are around with a few fish looking up.  Congrats to our anglers this past week, some of the largest Brook Trout we have ever taken were landed by our guests-nice work!

Warming Waters

May 7th, 2011 at 6:56 pm

Steelhead fishing continues a provide some good times with mainly drop back Steelhead available as most fish have either spawned or are finishing up their spawning duties.  Drop back Steelhead are aggressive and are downright angry when hooked in the warming water temps.  A variety of flys can take fish at this time & it’s fun to see the fish eating such different patterns.  Some Blue Winged Olives have been present on the warm sunny days as well as a few Caddis bouncing around the surface.
