Fishing Report from a couple recent guide trips on local Grand Rapids waters.  Steelhead fishing is really starting to pick up, with stable weather, temps, and water levels up a bit, steelhead have been happy. This time of year can be very hard to find fish but once you do usually they’ll eat, just have to get the right pattern in front of their face. Get out and take advantage of the mild winter we are having, there are plenty of fish around! We have been having success running smaller stones and rag eggs lately. Stones in 10s and 12s,...

Steelhead / Brown Trout Fishing Report  Steelhead around Grand Rapids has been a little slower due to water levels being very low in almost all of our rivers. We have found a few fish around Grand Rapids in the tribs, for the most part it's been an all nymph bite. Size 8-12 nymphs have been getting the only bites of the day, the flies we have been using in my boat are (Hex nymphs, Krilla, and Stoneflies). Yesterday we had fish take on size 10 Stones. As you travel further north the fishing has been a little better, with the...

Well I think it safe to finally say we think the heat wave is gone! That was a hot June, July, and half of August, with evening temps finally falling the trout fishing has really picked up all across the state. Over this last weekend I was able to sneak away from the shop and head up to the Au Sable for a couple days to get some fishing in and to catch up with all the dudes over at Gates Au Sable Lodge! We spent most of our time up north trying to force a streamer bite, which we...

Wow what a change of pace this weekend! Weather in the 80s was a nice change to the very cold and wet spring we have had to deal with this year. Fishing this weekend was awesome for us at the shop, The Nomad Anglers crew was able to slip away up north to chase some fish on streamers, oh boy was it a blast. We were moving fishing all day on streamers from 3 inches all the way to 8 inches and were lucky enough to hook a few. Most of the luck came from streamers that matched the bottom...

The drought we experienced earlier this month has come to a definitive end, and we’re now facing some very different fishing conditions. It took a lot of rain to fill the low water table and we recovered two months worth of precipitation in about two and a half days. If the forecast for most of the Lower Peninsula is correct, we expect to see high and dirty water for a week or more. Look for quick-draining tributaries and creeks which should have better clarity.   Anglers have had success streamer fishing and this may be the name of the game...
