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. Small nymphs and light tippet has been the ticket. But soon enough the egg buffet will be back open and the trout will be the first in line. Reports have been rolling in of King Salmon in the lower river. Over the last week I have heard of a few fish caught downtown as well. The...
Bye bugs we will see you next year! Now that the hatches are almost all done and the days are warmer night time mousing is picking up. So break out the 8wts and floating lines and start chucking mice at the bank! Now, what if you're not a night time person? Well you're in luck because it’s also hopper season. Once the sun gets high, look for shady wood piles, over hanging trees, cut banks, and most importantly tall grass that over hangs next to the water! With hopper fishing sometimes it’s about drawing them out to come take a swipe...
Warm weather returned last week and it blew the lid off the hex fishing. Good reports from across the state have been rolling in all week. The little dip in temps we had earlier this week should draw things out just enough for a last hurrah of hex fishing this weekend. Iso fishing remains consistent before the hatch, and as we roll into the summer day time terrestrial fishing will pick up as the weather permits as will the late night mousing if you're into that sort of thing... Just like the trout eating surface flies during the night we...
Summer Bugs are here, over the weekend the brown drakes showed up in full force. A group of the Nomad Anglers crew sent it up north to chase the falling brown drakes with some success. Plenty of bugs around and fish eager to feed. Brown drakes are winding down now, and I would expect the big bugs to start any day now. Isos are starting to show up in fishable numbers as well. These are a great option to blind fish in the early evening before the bigger bugs fall. Swing by the shop to load up on big flies...
Well the heat wave is still here, water levels are way down and water temps are on the rise. We are in need of some rain ASAP!!! Where does that put us with bug hatches right now? With the high temps things are happening late, and hatches are going to go quick. Hopefully next week's cooler temps will put the brakes on a bit. For the most part Grey Drakes are still the main bug popping off during that dusk time period and there are trout still looking up to eat those bugs. Plenty of sulphurs on the Muskegon as...
