As I write this report the fall rain we have been hoping for is finally falling. Its been a cloudy week, hinting at rain each day, but last night the sky finally broke open and brought the shot of rain we needed. Fishing was pretty good this weekend, but low water conditions made things a little tough. Smaller more natural patterns, and persistence were the keys to success.

There is no question it is fall in Michigan. After a long hot summer the weather has finally cooled off, the leaves are changing, mornings are crisp, and there is even some rain in the forecast! This is among the best times of the year to get outside and enjoy some time on the water. Opportunities abound. Trout fishing has been great, Kings and Cohos are still around, and Steelhead are on the horizon.

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.

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...
