Wow what a way to start a week... Michigan never fails to surprise us at the shop, from 60 degrees to 30 degrees with snow really makes us feel spring will never come. BUT it looks like this coming weekend is going to be a hot one in the 70s, it can only seem like the trout fishing and the tail end of the steelhead will be awesome this weekend. All trout anglers get ready whether you fish streamers, dry flies, or nymphs the fish are going to be chowing down this weekend. After being out on the water all...

Rain, Rain, Go Away! After some heavy rain and melt off in the last couple weeks that has put a big damper on fishing in Michigan but didn't ruin it. With water and flows finally on the come down it has really improved the fishing across the state. Steelhead fishing is getting very good in the last couple days, with more fish actively eating and working up the river system. Hot flies for steelhead have been bigger egg flies, such as rag eggs and nuke eggs. Do not shy away from tying up some bigger and brighter egg flies than you...

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. This is probably due to the high, dirty, cold...

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....
