More Water

November 1st, 2009

The high water trend continues as we have had quite a bit of rain lately here across the U.P.., I do believe that this Fall is the highest I have seen river levels in a very long time for this time of the year.  It is strange though as we went from having low water conditions to now high water-there was really no median water level.  Currently levels have been dropping & should do so for some time as no big rains are predicted.  The higher water has brought in some very nice fish-Steelhead, Lake Run Brown Trout and Coho are available.  The higher water makes fish rest/feed in areas that do not hold fish in normal water flows.  It is worthwhile to pick apart every piece of water as many different areas can hold fish in high water situations.  Fall colors are gone now as high winds blew away our beautiful late fall backdrop, good news for the Grouse hunters!  From now till the chill of Winter sets in is a fun time on the water-some Steelhead & Browns have been grabbing the streamers.  Many different techniques will provide for the fly angler to get their fix!

Congrats to Jim H. on a Fall Grand Slam-Steelhead, Lake Run Brown Trout & Coho !
