Rivers North Fishing Report


March 10th, 2010

Unseasonably warm weather has been melting our snowpack at what I would considered an alarming rate as of lately.  This time of the early Spring is supposed to be in the 20’s still during daylight hours, not the 50’s like we have seen this week.  Currently river levels have not really been impacted by snowmelt, but if we get the rain they are forecasting rivers will rise.  A rapid verses prolonged snow melt is not good, this usually means we are in for a low water Summer-so pray for some cold weather and snow!  Yes, as much as I dislike that kind of weather (cold/snow), it provides for excellent water levels!  Very few (if any) new Spring Steelhead have entered our rivers yet-all the fish present are Steelhead that have been around since Fall or meandered in during the Winter months.  Nonetheless a warm up like this can get these fish interested and more active than they have been for months.

Please stop by Colton Bay Outfitters in Ann Arbor, MI on March 11 @ 6pm- Colton Bay is hosting Riversnorth for the evening.  A ppt slideshow on Fly Fishing the U.P. as well as many fish stories will be told.  Colton Bay is the areas foremost authority on fly fishing and they offer a full line of quality equipment with a friendly/knowledgable staff.  Stop by & hang out for the evening!
