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,...

So Michigan did Michigan things again over the last 2 weeks... From 20 inches of snow and -10 degrees, to rain and highs in the 50s. But here at the shop we aren't complaining because we needed the water bad. With all the melt off and rain, every river across the state got a much needed bump in flows. The fish have been loving it as well which makes catching fish a little easier with some color and higher water level opening up some secondary fishing lies which have been too low to fish for a while. The bump in flows...

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 when did Michigan become so hot... With this huge heat wave and little to no rain the fishing has become tough but not impossible. We have been really watching the water temps for the last 3 weeks with a close eye due to water temps being around 68-70 degrees or higher everyday in most rivers on the west side of the state. Remember if water temps are hotter than 68 leave the trout alone and go chase bass, the trout aren't going anywhere trust me. Now if you are able to find cool enough water up north you better have your big...
