We are still getting absolutely blasted with rain. Every few days, there's a sizable rainstorm. And there's more on the way. It has made things fairly tough, especially for the wade angler. Nonetheless, fishing has been pretty damn good, with hatches becoming steadier by the day. Grey Drakes, Brown Drakes, and Sulphers have been the main show as of late. As far as the Hex goes, they are probably another 2 weeks out. Can't predict what will happen (obviously), but they will most likely be late, just as all the bugs have been this season. The combination of heavy rains...

Still slow in transitioning to warmth, but it could always be worse! Bugs are hatching, fish are eating them, and chasing streamers nicely.  Grand Rapids 10 day outlook. Not bad!   We spent last weekend up north, throwing streamers and hoping for some Hendricksons. Each day was bright, and the water was surprisingly clear (and cold), so the bite was pretty quiet. We got a few, and hooked a couple really nice ones.  Mostly on yellow. Had some action on chartreuse as well.  Didn't find the big one we were looking for, but gave it a solid effort. Bright sun...

Don't want to jinx us, but seems like we might be getting closer to permanent warmth. We all know better than to assume Spring is here, but at least there is light at the end of the tunnel. The past 2 months have been tough on everyone. Hopefully it turns back sooner than later. Here's the 8 day outlook for GR. Not too shabby! Good numbers were caught over the past week. Lots of options in play right now. Pick your favorite method and get it done. Swing, strip, bob, pin, chuck, all are on the table and will work...

Steelhead fishing in the Grand River and surrounding tributaries has been good, but the weather continues to dampen the action. There are plenty of fish around, but dropping water temperatures can make it difficult to get fish to cooperate. Nymphing egg patterns and nymphs is consistent, and swinging spey flies is an option, but not necessarily a numbers thing.

Last night we got some much needed rain. The Rogue River came up and peaked around 360 cfs. It is flowing with a light coffee stain. The gauge on the Grand River is back online and currently sitting around 4500 cfs and rising.  This rain should push some fish up the ladder setting us up for a great week of steelhead fishing. Swinging has been productive the last couple of days, try some flashier flies like Feenstra's Grapefruit Leech or Aquatic Nuisance. Bright egg flies and big stones are great options for indicator fishing.
