It sure has been a blessing here in the U.P. to have the rains we have had this summer, with all the hot weather the nice steady shots of water have provided some relief to the fish that call our rivers home.  Currently levels are good, but warm-no need for waders as of the time being.  Smallmouth & some toothy fish have provided some good times over the last week although some larger toothed fish have made short work of the flouro tippets.  A great time to visit the U.P., bring the family up & enjoy the great weather :)

Hot to Trot

Life in the oven continues here in da almighty U.P., daytime temps have been in the upper 80’s it seems like for eternity this summer.  River & even Lake Superior water temps are scary high, don’t think I have ever seen the big lake this warm.  Limited Trout opps are available other than spring fed streams at this point of this warm season.  Our warm water friends have been quite active as water temps are friendly for them.  A variety of techniques have produced some nice fish as of lately.  Don’t hate on the heat, embrace it-ol’ man winter is comn soon!
