Trout Fishing Update -  Winter Trout... It's not for the weak minded let me tell you, whether its frozen hands, frozen feet, or just your whole body is frozen it takes a certain person with the right amount of passion to do it. With all those things there are a few people who love it, and myself along with my client Jim are those crazy people standing in the river in a snowstorm chasing trout. We had a slow morning working side pockets Euro Nymphing very slow water and inside seams which got us a couple smaller trout nothing to write...

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...

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....
