Cold Fingers

November 22nd, 2011

Safe to say Winter is here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, most of the north coast has snow on the ground & mornings are quite cold.  Steelhead are acting more like Winter fish now in their overall behavior & Lake Run Browns/Late season Cohos are still available in limited numbers.  Water temps are in the 30’s & and most streams are running quite clear.  Covering water thoroughly will get the angler some well deserved hookups on chilly days. Forecast is calling for a bit of a warm up over the holiday, then back to a more normal weather pattern for this time of the season.  Congrats to Ted on a magnum class Steelhead!

The first measurable snow fall has happened here in the Upper Peninsula, much has melted at this point but some areas still have descent amounts on the ground.  Some rain was also present with this snow storm which brought stream levels up a fair amount.  Some rivers are back to running clear while others remain quite stained.  Steelhead are available and Lake Run Brown Trout have been a bit more active now that their spawning is all wrapped up.  Some remarkable numbers of first year return Steelhead have been seen, a wonderful sign for the future!  Good luck to all da Buck hunters out der-a fun time of the year here in the great north!

Save a Life, release a Steel!

Love um & Leave um

Fishing across the Upper Peninsula remains solid, water levels are fairly low and temps are in the upper 30’s to lower 40’s.  Steelhead, Lake Run Browns & Cohos are present and a nice variety of techniques are taking fish at this time. Congrats to our guests on some sweet fish that made it to the net this past week! Some very nice sized Steelhead & Salmon have come from all our rivers this Fall-a great sign for the the overall health of all of the Great Lakes. Snow & rain is in the forecast, the frozen season is approaching.
