Come fly fish the U.P.!

June 25th, 2016 at 10:17 am

Finally a break from the rains & rivers levels are running pretty normal for this time of the season. Warmer than normal temps have our water temps higher than normal.  Some resident Trout opps still exist as some hatches are still occuring & fish are used to looking up.  Smallmouth Bass fishing has been good at times, a better choice when water temps are up.

Trout fishing in the U.P.

June 13th, 2016 at 8:55 am

Trout fishing here in the U.P. has been getting better as stream levels are dropping and in better shape.  A variety of insects have had Trout rising at times.  Brown Drakes, Caddis, Sulphurs, Stoneflies and Blue Winged Olives are active in different areas.  Fly fishing for warm water species has also been productive as water temps continue to climb.

High water in the streams

June 4th, 2016 at 8:13 pm

High water across the region, many of our Trout streams currently here in the Upper Peninsula are quite big.  Seems like no break from the heavy rains over the last few weeks, never a good thing for this time frame of fishing.  This being said Trout fishing is relatively poor at this time, we need a period w no rain to get stream levels down to a normal level.  Warm water species fishing has been good at times, predators getting active w the warming water temps!
