Any Given Cast

September 24th, 2012

Pretty much ideal weather has provided some some excellent fishing conditions as of late.  A bit colder than normal, nice rains & overcast skies w rain is a good combo for high quality opportunities.  Right now there is a lot of choices for the angler, several Salmon species are available as well as prime time for trophy toothy fish.  Congrats to John from New Zealand on his first Musky on a fly & rest of guests on some great fish as of lately.

Burr, downright cold up here right now!  A cold front has moved in that brought some nice rains to different regions of the U.P., water levels range from high to quite low-feels nice to have some fall like weather.  Water temps are where they should be for the most part right now. Some Salmon are present, limited numbers are available at this time.  Resident Trout have been more active lately with the colder weather.

Water temps are on the cool down & a seasons change is pretty much upon us as i type.  Nice crisp mornings & some frequent rains have the north woods settling into fall.  Daytime temps have still be in the 60’s & 70’s, but nighttime temps have been dropping into the low 40’s.  The warm water fish have been interested in one thing as of lately, MEAT!  Some aggressive takes have been bone chilling & left us downright speechless.  Some Salmon are also available now and numbers should continue to increase if the rain & cool weather persist.  Mucho congrats to Jeff on a great Musky that ate the fly about 5 feet from his rod tip-way to go!

Double yer fun

Sun & more warm temps provided for some great fishing as of lately.  Smallmouth Bass have been a quite active, seasons are changing & so are fish attitudes. Water temps are dropping a bit and a real healthy dose of rain moved through areas of the Upper Peninsula yesterday.  Some areas of the forest are already beginning to display some Autumn splendor. Congrats to Ted & Jerry on a sweet daily double below!
