Well, things have really escalated here in Michigan. Over the past 24 hours, the government has issued a statewide lock-down, instructing people to stay at home as much as possible. As far as we can tell, you are STILL ALLOWED to go fishing. But be smart about it, don't share a boat with a buddy, and try not to stop at gas stations along the way (if you can help it). There is nothing wrong with driving to the river, and spending some time outdoors. Again, be smart about it, and take this ordeal seriously. The only way we're going...

We are in the midst of a pandemic! The Midwest Fly Fishing Expo in Warren this weekend has been cancelled, and the same goes for the Ultimate Sport Show in GR next week. For now, both shops will remain open. It seems to us that fly tying and fishing are fairly legitimate forms of social distancing. Please keep your local shop in mind in the coming weeks. Remember that most of our inventory is on our website and we SHIP FOR FREE. If you cant find it on our website and would like it shipped to your house, give us a...

Trout and Steel have been great lately, and the weather has been very cooperative. No huge rain storms recently have allowed the water to reside, and stabilize nicely. We actually got a good amount of melt last week, and some of the water temps really dropped because of it. Still, fishing has been good, with plenty of solid outings. Steelhead are on the move, and are starting to fan gravel in areas, which is very early. If the weather stays the same, we could see a very early arrival of the Spring fish, which are just starting to show up....

We are on the leading edge of arguably the best fishing of the year. Water temps are dropping to a lower level, and fish activity is really ramping up. Salmon run is slightly past peak, Steelhead are showing up, and the trout fishing is getting really good. We are recovering from the high water last week, and nearly all the rivers impacted are now down and approachable again. They are still on the high side, but not nearly what they were 6 days ago. The weekend weather forecast is pretty crazy, with a dip in temps, and another hit of...

King Salmon are here in full force, and they are pretty much everywhere. They are quite large this year, and put up a major tussle when hooked. Some pushing 40lbs have been landed.  Coho salmon are also in full swing. Lots of them were at sixth street dam last week, and there are still some lingering. Most have made it through the dam and are in rivers upstream.  With all the rain last week, the rives are finally receding to a normal level. Nonetheless, make sure to wade with caution, as they are still a bit on the high side. ...
