Rob scores a great Spring buck under the indicator

Looks like we have a great weather week ahead of us here in Northern Michigan as Spring has most certainly staked its claim here in Northern Michigan. I think it hit 70 yesterday and the forecast is 50’s all week! Spring steelhead fishing is about at its peak right now as river temps are reaching that magic number for the rest of staging fish to hit the stone. We should have another good week or so of fish hitting stone and doing their thing, then the drop back fishing will pick up. Best flies right now have been buggers and eggs, but stone flies are getting attention as well as Spring temps are bringing them out. If you are looking to enjoy this beautiful Spring weather and fishing, give us a shout and spend a day on the crick. We have plenty of Spring dates available. 231-228-7135.

See ya out there,

Jon S.
