Rivers North Fishing Report

Snowy May

May 12th, 2013 at 5:56 pm

Snow?  Cmon now, you have to be kidding me with this as it May 12 and the last two mornings we have been greeted by a blanket of white covering the ground here in the U.P.!  On the bright side, that is more water to keep our stream levels happy and our Great Lakes increasing in volume.

Steelhead fishing remains pretty good overall, water temps have climbed into the mid 50’s and now back down into the 40’s.  Water levels range from high to normal for this time of the fishing season and water clarity differs from river to river.  Congrats to our guests this past week, many 1st Steelhead and some trophy class fish-nice work!

Trout fishing has been slowly gaining a bit of steam, some sporadic insect activity has been present.  Blue Winged Olives, Black Caddis and Stoneflies are starting somewhat-warmer weather will get these hatches fired up.  This week saw our first dry fly action of the year as many Brook trout were brought to hand off the surface.
