Rivers North Fishing Report

Late Season Troutin’

September 11th, 2008

Resident Brook & Brown Trout have been the focus here over the past few days-very cold nights (frost) has dropped water temps dramatically and improved Trouting!  Currently most rivers are running in the low 60’s – this is very ideal for the last chance of the year to get out & fish many U.P. Trout streams before they close @ the end of the month.  Cloudy days have been fishing good-not much dry fly activity to speak of, everybody is feeding subsurface other than the random rising fish to BWO’s.  The forecast is calling for much of the same type weather for the next week-this should keep water temps about where they are now & any rain will also help things out.  Some opportunities were presented with some mega sized fish over this past week-but sometimes the fish win & keep you coming back hoping for another chance someday!

Pink Salmon numbers on the St.Marys River are very strong @ this time.  They are spread out throughout the river system-this years run is very good compared to last year, a great sign for the future!  Chinook Salmon numbers are also increasing daily & should for the next couple weeks.  Lake Michigan & Lake Superior streams have received a FEW Chinook @ this time, barely fishable numbers @ best.

Fall is upon us now in the U.P.-the greatest time of the year for the fly fisherman!
