Well where did all the snow go? In true Michigan style it went from 2 feet of snow to 40 and raining, which isn't the worst thing in the world due to the low water levels across the state. I was up north all weekend poking around steelhead rivers swinging and indy fishing with no great luck, it was tough all weekend with the blue bird skies paired with 50 degree temps, it wasn't the best idea I have ever had. I will say the fish are there, with good bumps happening every so often along with 2 steelhead just unhooking...

 Well Fall is here and in full swing... From the temp drop, leaves changing colors, and oh ya Kings, Coho, and Steelhead are in hot and heavy! With the lack of water across the state it's been tough trying to fight the low gin clear water.  The name of the game right now is huge attractor patterns or tiny subtle patterns to get bites, whether that be blob eggs to size 8 McFly foam eggs but for the most part the key is fishing lighter line such as 10 lb. to get bites more often.  The rigs my clients and myself...

It's that time of the year again, the Salmon are back and are in full swing of things. Rivers across the state are filled with Kings and Cohos on their yearly trip to spawn. For rivers local to Grand Rapids ( Rogue, and the Grand) we have found a perfect drift with an indicator set up has been the ticket to landing kings, Cohos, and browns! With the perfect drift its almost impossible for those fish to say no to an egg or nymph pattern!      Hot Flies that we have found right now for this set up are-  Orange...

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...

Have you been to the river in the last week or so and seemed to shine a little bit more than normal? Well you're right, there's chrome everywhere. April brings some of the best spring fishing you can get into, with steelhead flooding into most rivers in Michigan. Steelhead are right in the peak of their spring migration so now is the time to get out and try your shot with some of the best fighting fish Michigan has to offer.  As the days go on and we head into the warmer days of April, the fishing will really start...
