As August is quickly fading into September some new opportunities are beginning to show their familiar faces.  Limited numbers of Steelhead, Chinook and Pink Salmon are around, but fishing success has been fairly inconsistent as of right now as fish numbers are small.  Nonetheless it is very rewarding to feel the tug of something substantial on the other end of the line!  Look for Salmon numbers to increase once water temps decline.

Fall-it’s on it’s way!

A cool down over the course of this past week has dropped water temps a bit & some fresh rain has helped the cause as well.  This week Brook Trout were the focus as small spring creeks provided for some good fishing and some beautiful native Brook Trout were brought to hand.  These fish were showing signs for spawning colors which is a sign that Fall isn’t to far off in the future.

Brook Trout-Pride of the Yooperland!

More Heat

August 11th, 2010

Continued hot weather here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has kept water temps up & Resident Trout/Atlantic Salmon lethargic.  Lake Superior is 10 degrees above average for this time of the year, forecast is looking a little more favorable for a cool down over the next 10 days.  This past week a few warm water species found their way into the net as well as some familiar faces.

C’mon cold mornings!

August Heat

August 3rd, 2010

Water temps continue to stay a bit too warm with the high air temps we have been receiving here in the U.P., Atlantic Salmon are very moody with the warm water.  Ample rainfall this mid Summer has kept our Trout streams very full of water which is a big blessing with all this extreme hot weather that is not normal for the Upper Peninsula.

The Heron-the finest of all fisherman!
