Fishing has been pretty good over the last couple weeks. We are officially in the throws of steelhead season. Temps are dropping, although they are dropping slowly and that is drawing out fall a bit which we are happy about.  Steelhead are around in most every river system at this point, and we are setting up for a good winter of fishing. I feel like a broken record but we are once again waiting for some rain to shuffle the decks a bit. Local water is very low and clear which makes things a little difficult.  Luckily there is some...

As I write this report the fall rain we have been hoping for is finally falling. Its been a cloudy week, hinting at rain each day, but last night the sky finally broke open and brought the shot of rain we needed. Fishing was pretty good this weekend, but low water conditions made things a little tough. Smaller more natural patterns, and persistence were the keys to success.

There is no question it is fall in Michigan. After a long hot summer the weather has finally cooled off, the leaves are changing, mornings are crisp, and there is even some rain in the forecast! This is among the best times of the year to get outside and enjoy some time on the water. Opportunities abound. Trout fishing has been great, Kings and Cohos are still around, and Steelhead are on the horizon.

First off, we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this chaotic time. It's a very unnerving situation, with so much uncertainty ahead of us. We wish you all the best going forward, and hope everything returns to normalcy soon.  We've been getting out a fair amount, and the fishing has been good. We're going to keep it brief this time. Trout have been great. Steelhead have been fun, but certainly dwindling. Nymphing has been the best, streamers have been fantastic. Swinging for steelhead also good. Warmwater bite is turning on. Dry flies are going strong. Lots of options...

Well, things have really escalated here in Michigan. Over the past 24 hours, the government has issued a statewide lock-down, instructing people to stay at home as much as possible. As far as we can tell, you are STILL ALLOWED to go fishing. But be smart about it, don't share a boat with a buddy, and try not to stop at gas stations along the way (if you can help it). There is nothing wrong with driving to the river, and spending some time outdoors. Again, be smart about it, and take this ordeal seriously. The only way we're going...
