Early Steelhead fishing in the U.P.

March 28th, 2016 at 9:12 pm

Our weird spring continues, we are pretty much running about a month early on the fishing calendar at this point.  Major runoff conditions blew up our streams and now they are back down for the most part.  There are Steelhead available pretty much everywhere, numbers vary widely. Water temps are cold, in the lower 30’s for the most part.  Very little if any spawning activity has happened.  It is hard to say how many Steelhead have entered our streams at this point, we should see more with every bump in water levels now. More cold & snow predicted for the end of the week, interesting conditions to say the least..image1-46
