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...

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...

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...

June is a month many of us cherish. We plan our lives around the behavior of winged insects and risk going a little crazy with changes in our sleep schedules. Swarms of mosquitos, waders caked with black silt, and even the occasional midge lodged underneath an eyelid…all of that discomfort seems to fade when trout start to rise.      Last week our northern rivers saw an emergence of brown drakes. Sulfurs were also seen in strong numbers but fish didn’t seem to be as interested in them. Hex have also been found and their migration up and down our...

The hex hatch is a unique experience in Northern Michigan that can drive someone crazy. Some individuals plan vacations around some people skip sleep and drive north after work and return home before sun rise.  It is not until you "hit it" that an individual gets what all the hype is about.  Many rivers got the first taste of bugs over the past few nights and should continue for the next 10 days.  My experience started after a family game of Pictionary that ended around 10pm with a "I'm going to see if there are any bugs"  statement.  Shortly after I...
