“Foam is home” on the Pere Marquette River.   The Trout are looking up through out the whole day and into the night.    Terrestrials and attractors are working well you can fish them with or without a dropper.

The Pere Marquette River fished a little tougher last week with colder temps.  Then by the weekend we saw a nice warm front come through and even got a little bit of much needed  rain.

Great to finally see some warmer Spring weather and everything starting to turn green on the banks of the Pere Marquette River.  It’s that time of year where we pick out our favorite hat for Trout, knowing we’re going to drench it every evening with bug spray.  The time of year that we spend more time waiting to cast and waiting for bugs, wondering if tonight will be the night when the spinners will drop
