March is typically a month filled with madness at the shop with piles of new product coming in daily, multiple trade shows and the rivers on the verge of blowing out with snow melt and a freak rain storm.  After a complete year of madness, this March has started out with some consistency and is bringing high hopes for a great 2021.  The rivers across the state are in good shape with steelhead numbers increasing daily in most systems. With the slowly increasing water temps, barring an extreme water event, steelheading should remain steady well into April. Eggs, stoneflies, green caddies and...

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...

We are at the peak of the "24/7 season." Trout fishing is good all day and all night. No matter how you approach the river, anytime of day can be productive. So much fun having all these opportunities available. Mousing, hatch matching, streamer fishing, prospecting dries, indicator nymphing, euro nymphing, trout spey, soft hackles, and even terrestrial fishing are all in play. It's an incredible time to be a fly angler in the great state of Michigan. We truly have it good, and we are excited to be smack dab in the middle of the best fishing window of the...

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...
