Hard Grabs

October 30th, 2011

Water temps are dropping on a daily basis & Steelhead are reacting accordingly with the varying water levels/clarity/temps.  Most rivers here in the U.P. are quite clear & some are back to a low state. A few snowflakes have been in the air & some mornings have been quite cold.  A fun time of the year here in the northwoods-fishing & hunting choices are overwhelming!

Cold Days Ahead

October 23rd, 2011

Cooler temps with some brutal high winds lately here in the Upper Peninsula, most of the leaves have fallen off the trees and late fall in now upon us.  Water levels came up with some nice rains and now are subsiding back to a lower state. Steelhead, Lake Run & resident Brown Trout as well as Coho are available.  The forecast even has some snowflakes in it this week, Winter is not that far away ladies & gentleman!

Tis da Season

October 17th, 2011

Heavy rains have risen water levels nicely across the Upper Peninsula & more seasonably weather has been present.  Some great fish have come to the fly lately, congrats to our guests!  Steelhead, Lake Run & Resident Brown Trout & Coho Salmon are available. Water temps are now more normal for this time of the season, forecast looks like more wet/colder weather for the near future.  The leaves are gone after the high winds, Winter isn’t to away here in the Yooperland.

Hot n’ Spicy

October 9th, 2011

After a brief period of higher water levels rivers have now dropped back to a low water state.  The past week high sun & extra warm daytime temps had it feeling more like Summer than Autumn here in the Upper Peninsula.  Fishing remains to be pretty good with a mixed bag of fish still available.  The higher water levels brought in a few Steelhead & Lake Run Brown Trout-Chinook numbers are beginning to slow and Coho are still available.  Congrats to John on a first class Brown Trout!

True Colors

October 2nd, 2011

Heavy rains fell across much of the Upper Peninsula over the course of this past week, many rivers are running at higher than average levels with low clarity.  Currently Chinook, Coho, & Pink Salmon are available in most rivers and fish numbers vary largely.  A few very feisty Steelhead are available, numbers should increase daily as Fall progresses. Some absolutely stunning Fall colors are widely available throughout the area, it should last for another week or so. As Sept has ended, please consult your MI fishing regs as many Trout streams are now closed to angling.
