March is typically a month filled with madness at the shop with piles of new product coming in daily, multiple trade shows and the rivers on the verge of blowing out with snow melt and a freak rain storm.  After a complete year of madness, this March has started out with some consistency and is bringing high hopes for a great 2021.  The rivers across the state are in good shape with steelhead numbers increasing daily in most systems. With the slowly increasing water temps, barring an extreme water event, steelheading should remain steady well into April. Eggs, stoneflies, green caddies and...

While the darkest days of winter may be behind us, the coldest days have just arrived. Fishing was decent in the weeks leading up to this cold snap. The bite was getting a little tough from day to day but the persistent angler could still find a few fish a day.  Many of us turn to euro nymphing when the fishing gets tough in the winter.

As I write this report the fall rain we have been hoping for is finally falling.

There is no question it is fall in Michigan. After a long hot summer the weather has finally cooled off, the leaves are changing, mornings are crisp, and there is even some rain in the forecast! This is among the best times of the year to get outside and enjoy some time on the water. Opportunities abound. Trout fishing has been great, Kings and Cohos are still around, and Steelhead are on the horizon.
