Grand River Fishing Report, Pere Marquette River Fishing Report, Rogue River Fishing Report -

Starting to sound like a broken record but the fishing this week remains much the same as the previous couple of weeks. There are plenty of fish in the system, with lots of salmon being caught down town Grand Rapids, it sounds like they are stacked up below 6th street dam. Some fish have been pushing up and there are reports of fish in the Rogue as well. However, water levels remain tremendously low and we are in desperate need of rain locally and further north. The Pere Marquette is about as low as it gets, but there are fish...

Grand River Fishing Report, Manistee River Fishing Report, Pere Marquette River Fishing Report, Rogue River Fishing Report -

This weeks rain has brought water levels up locally a touch so we are moving in the right direction. There have been plenty of reports of Salmon moving throughout the Grand River, and starting to make their way up higher into the larger tributaries. Fish are being caught downtown and more are showing up every day. Rivers to the north like the Manistee and the Pere Marquette are also reporting good numbers. Water levels to the north have ticked up a bit with this weeks rain, but much like the rivers down here, levels are dropping fast. So keep your...

Fall is on the horizon. Shorter days and crisp mornings have returned, at least for now. The cooler overnight temps have been great for trout fishing.  Shop staffer Drew got out for an early morning of Euro Nymphing and found a few nice players.

Over the last week I have heard of a few fish caught downtown as well. The...

As we roll through the dog days of summer and maybe start to think about the season ahead, there is plenty of good fishing opportunities around the state.  Locally the bass fishing has been pretty good, despite the low water on the Grand River, Rogue River, and Flat River. Bite windows have been most consistent early in the morning and late in the evening on top water flies (zudbubblers, gurglers, mr wigglys, boogle bugs, etc). As the sun comes up, focusing on deep subsurface presentations have produced some consistent bites.  Despite the low water, nymphing has been productive for trout...

Short and sweet this week. Warm weather continued to dominate the forecast this week, but luckily fairly cool nights have kept things in check, and the summer fishing continues to be fairly consistent.  Top water has been the name of the game for bass on the Grand River. Gurglers, poppers, mr. wiggly's, etc. If its on top its been good. We just got a load of Zudbubblers in this week, swing by the shop to pick some up and tie up a few for yourself if you're into that.  Nymphing for trout in the morning has been producing some good...
