The options of August

August 21st, 2008

This time of the Summer there are many different options to choose from when fly fishing the U.P.! Resident Trout, Atlantic Salmon, Northern Pike, Bass & even Walleye can be caught using flies in August. August is typically some of the tougher fly fishing (resident Trout) of the year-rivers are warmest & lowest of the year. So why not explore some other options, the Upper Peninsula has hundreds of beautiful inland lakes that warm water species inhabit. Streamer fishing for warm water species is lots of fun-the strikes from Pike & Bass on streamers & top water flies are very alarming/exciting!

Atlantic Salmon are still in good numbers on the St.Marys River as well as a few more Chinook & Pink Salmon. Pacific Salmon #’s are improving daily- LSSU ARL (www.lssu.edu/arl) informed me that some very healthy Lk Huron Chinook are being reported from the Detour area this year which is a great sign for the fishery! Some very cold night time temps has helped keep water temps good for this time of the year. We could use a good rainfall as river levels are getting a bit low & some fresh water will help some more Chinook sniff their way upstream! Stay tuned-Fall is coming soon!
