Michigan Fly Fishing Fishing Report | Nomad Anglers RSS

And just like that hex camp was over.  Many people look forward to November 15th each year for a pilgrimage up-north for deer camp. We, on the other hand, have looked forward to the end of June and have begun to create memories that will be passed down to grandkids someday.  Good food, friends, fires, and fish is the perfect mix for your soul during these uncertain times.  Politics are checked at the door for the most part and trying to piece together the puzzle pieces of the hex hatch is the main objective.   This year we had success...

Au Sable River, hex hatch, Michigan fishing report, Northern Michigan -

The hex hatch is a unique experience in Northern Michigan that can drive someone crazy. Some individuals plan vacations around some people skip sleep and drive north after work and return home before sun rise.  It is not until you "hit it" that an individual gets what all the hype is about.  Many rivers got the first taste of bugs over the past few nights and should continue for the next 10 days.  My experience started after a family game of Pictionary that ended around 10pm with a "I'm going to see if there are any bugs"  statement.  Shortly after I...

Hex, Trout Fishing -

One of my favorite times of year in Michigan.  Unlimited opportunities across the state chasing trout on dry flies.  All leading up to the big dance with the hex hatch on the horizon.  Brown drakes and grey drakes were the main bugs on northern rivers across the state and the cold temps played games with the constancy.  Iso's fished blindly have produced numbers of fish leading our to the hatch while the streamer bite so so.  This weeks temperatures look more forgiving and any night could be the night. Good luck to all venturing into the night!  SHOP BUGSLocal fishing...

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...
