Beginnings-Trout Season

April 27th, 2009

Another opening day of Trout season has come and gone here in the U.P.-the traditions of checking all the new waters that open adds a certain lure of excitement to the fly fishing mix.  New water means new fish that haven’t had any angling pressure since last September!  This opener saw extremely high water conditions as I have not seen waters levels as high as they were for a very long time.  The melting snow from the past storm coupled with heavy rains caused some massive drainage issues-downright unsafe fishing conditions existed for a few days.  Since this weekend rivers have receded somewhat, but still remain on the high side of things.  Water temps are anywhere from the high 30’s to mid 40’s depending upon river system.  Steelhead have been seeking out slower areas to avoid heavy current from the high water and Brook Trout are beginning to get a bit more active as water temps rise-a few BWO’s & Midges are present and streamers will get some tugs.

A few prime date remain for Trout, take a vacation- you deserve it!
