Heat Wave?

June 23rd, 2013

A great time to visit the Upper Peninsula right now, wonderful weather & some nice fly fishing opportunities! Forecast is calling for more nice weather this past week & some rains this past week have water levels seasonally normal.  Baetis, Caddis, Brown Drakes & a few other insects have been bringing resident Trout to the surface.

New Life

June 16th, 2013

Summertime weather has been present across the Upper Peninsula as of lately which has made for some delightful fishing conditions.  Water levels are seasonally normal at this time and a nice rain fell tonight which was needed to keep everything in check. Seasonal hatches are pretty much on par and some nice Trout have been rising.  Keep your eyes open as well, little newborn fawns can be seen quite regularity.

Here in the Upper Peninsula Trout fishing has taken center stage, seems as if the weather is beginning to cooperate a bit more and give us some pleasant seasonal temps.  Fishing has been pretty descent as a variety of techniques have been producing some nice resident trout for our guests.  Caddis, Sulphurs, BWO’s & many others have been hatching daily.  Also, the warm water species have been getting more active with the warming water which is gives the angler even more options.  Don’t forget the bug spray and cigars, they are hungry this year :)

Summer Cold Front

June 2nd, 2013

Burr, seemed like summer was here until last night when more rains & a large cold front dumped into the Upper Peninsula.  Trout fishing was gaining steam nicely, but this cold weather & rain should push the fishing back some.  This season has seen lots of water in the streams & this trend seems keep going as the season goes along.  Caddis, Stoneflies, Dark & Light Hendricksons & a variety of other insects are making up the menu for the resident Trout.  Water temps are pretty normal for this time of this year.
