Rivers North Fishing Report

Snow in the yooperland!

October 22nd, 2008

When I looked @ the thermometer this morning I almost wanted to climb back into bed-21 degrees @ 5 am!  Ice in the guides & nobody else on the river-must be Steelhead season now here in the U.P.!  Salmon numbers are thinning out very quickly with the rapidly dropping water temps & our focus in now on Steelhead, Lake Run Brown Trout & some resident Trout.  Egg patterns have been providing the most action & streamers have been getting some fish excited enough to give a good tug on the other end of the line!  We did receive a decent amount of rain that helped out water levels a small amount.  More rain is forecasted for the weekend along with some heavy winds & snow.  The central U.P. did receive a small amount of snow yesterday- way to early for that stuff!  I have had the pleasure of fishing with several upland bird hunters this fall- though i do not bird hunt, everyone has reported good numbers of Grouse & Woodcock here in the U.P. (attached photo is of local bird dog Ricky Bobby’s first Grouse!).

Upland birds & Steelhead fly fishing in the U.P.-reserve your day for next Fall!
