Lucious Ladies

Quite the change in weather here across the Upper Peninsula over the course of one week.  We go from 60 degree weather to daytime highs in the 20’s-that will even make a fish scratch their head :)  Right now it is pretty much winter fishing conditions (cold & clear water) as ice is present in some river areas & many lakes are beginning to freeze up.  Regardless of the funky weather, there are some nice fish around-just takes some more patience on some days verses others when tossing flies. Thanks to Erik from Snap T productions on the stunning Steelhead photo below he took while spending the day w us.

Buck Deerz

Well, it’s deer season here in the U.P.-a sort of holiday here in the northwoods of Michigan!  For those looking to take the rod out instead of the rifle, some nice fish are available.  Steelhead, Lake Run Brown Trout and resident Trout are available, both nymphs and streamers are catching fish at this time.  Water levels and clarity are nice for this time of the year, some consistent rains have kept levels up.  Forecast looks like unseasonably warm weather is coming, seems to be getting normal for this time of the year. Best of luck to all the hunters & enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday!

Snows- Coming Soon!

November 9th, 2012

We are in the heart of late Fall right now & favorable weather has provided for some nice fishing conditions as of lately here in the U.P..  Steelhead and some Lk Run Browns are available with some high quality fish around right now.  Water temps are mostly in the 40 degree range right now and water levels are fairly normal on most streams, but Great Lakes levels remain quite low.  Bright Steelhead provide for some exciting battles right now.  Pictured below is Army Corporal Kurt who is leaving soon for his deployment to Afghanistan with a nice platinum piece,  your service of keeping us safe is greatly appreciated.

Hurricane Conditions

Lots of higher water conditions across the U.P. as of lately with the wet weather we have had.  Some much needed water for our Great Lakes that are suffering from extremely low water conditions after last Winters lack of snow & this summers heat/drought.  Bright Steelhead are available as well as a variety of other fish-a nice time of the season to target migratory fish on a variety of techniques.  Pictured below are couple St.Marys River Atlantic Salmon in spawning colors, one of the areas most unique species.
