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...

Happy Monday everyone, we hope you had a fun and safe trout opener this weekend. Heading head first into this week and weekend, there should be some really productive fishing happening in the next couple weeks, from the looks of it the weather is going to be really nice to us next week with temps reaching highs close to 80 degrees. With all that warm weather coming the trout should be on the hunt due to the river temps that could possibly reach close to 60 degrees across the state. With that for all the Dry Fly guys and gals...
