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...

Fishing has been steady over the past week, with steelhead and trout being our main targets. Day to day, it’s been all over the map. Good one day, slow the next. For someone looking to sneak away from the family and get on the water, it’s certainly a good time to do so. Despite the high water, the fish are often times willing to play if you put your time in, work each hole thoroughly, and stay determined.The steelhead bite has been pretty decent in general, but wouldn’t say it’s good.

After the high water, the rivers are finally starting to stabilize and level out. The rain has changed to snow, and we are looking forward to some seriously chilly weather. Early next week will be very cold, but thankfully, there are no major rainstorms predicted so the water levels won't be impacted at all. There are plenty of steelhead in the rivers, and fishing overall has been pretty solid. Sometimes it takes all day to find one, but hard work is generally rewarded. November is a special month. The steelhead are aggressive, and haven't quite settled into their winter spots....

Recent rains and snow melt have improved fishing conditions, but things are still relatively challenging. The Grand River, Pere Marquette, and Muskegon River have all been producing fish, but the weather has been less than ideal. Egg Flies, Hex nymphs, and small swing flies have been good options. A possible warmup next week will improve the trout and steelhead fishing locally and up north. Check our class schedule for upcoming tying events.

Steelhead and trout fishing has been good in the Grand River and West Michigan. Nymphing has been consistent, and swinging spey flies can be good on certain days. Conditions will improve as the weather stabilizes to a more consistent winter pattern. Lots of large steelhead lurking our waters. The quality of fishing changes day to day.
