Colder days ahead

September 29th, 2015 at 10:16 pm

A slow start to Fall is about to change as cooler weather is here in the Upper Peninsula.  We have been under summer like weather nearly all of September & now temps are supposed to hang in the 50’s which is more seasonable.  Salmon & Steelhead migrations have been on trickle charge so far w the high sun/warm temps.  Salmon are available most everywhere, but not in any heavy concentrations.  A few Steelhead are present, more of a bonus fish at this point of the game for the most part.  Covering water & hitting all the likely zones is how they find the net.

Fall Fishing in the U.P.

September 18th, 2015 at 4:51 pm

The feeling of fall is upon us here in the U.P..  Fishing is transitioning daily as water temps drop & days become shorter. Smallmouth Bass fishing has a shorter window during the day now as fish are most active during mid day when water temps are warmest.  The past week has been a roller coaster w the larger predators, high winds & huge weather changes made fishing both stellar on some days & terrible on others.  Salmon numbers continue to grow as both Coho & Chinook migrate into our streams from the Great Lakes.  All in all, this is a wonderful time of the year to fish the Upper Peninsula..

A transition to fall in the U.P.

September 9th, 2015 at 9:05 pm

The slightest bit of fall is starting here in the Upper Peninsula, in certain regions of the U.P. some trees are beginning to get a bit of color.  This is an absolutely wonderful time of the season to visit, potential for some great fish & a picture perfect backdrop.  A bit of a cool off now after a late summer heat wave, look for cool nights to drop water temps continually from this point forward.  Some Salmon are present in fairly low numbers, recent rains should bring in more. Predators have been very active on some days & our anglers have been quite pleased w the feeding…
