Rivers North Fishing Report

Fire on the mountain

May 30th, 2012

After a warm weekend, we are now in the midst of a cold front and receive some substantial rainfall which helped out our very low river levels.  During the warmer weather some great resident Trout fishing was available across the U.P.. Many different Mayflies as well as Caddis have been coming off-BWO’s, Sulphurs, March Browns & even Brown Drakes have been called dinner.  The colder temps now should slow down the emergences a bit as we have progressed very quickly & are ahead of schedule.  Thank you to The Scott Fly Rod Company-very pleased to be asked to be part of the Pro Staff team of top guides in the industry.

Quite a tragically eventful week here in the Upper Peninsula, unfortunately wildfires raged fully out of control and devastated thousands of acres of pristine wilderness.  Fires happened across the whole U.P., most most notably around the Seney area & north of Newberry.  Fishing roots run deep in these areas & our most sincere condolences go out to the owners of the all the properties that were devastated from this event.  Sources report that these two fires were started by lightning strikes and the high winds/arid conditions provided perfect conditions for the fires to spread.  Visit the Michigan DNR website for info on the wild fires.
