These Fish Will Take You For A Ride This Year!

Our prayers and thoughts go out to everyone in Texas and Florida with the Hurricanes and floods.  Also to everyone out West dealing with all the forest fires in there area. Last week the morning’s were getting crisp and cold, feeling more and more like fall.  This is my favorite time of year to be living in Northern Michigan. I’m blessed to be able to call this place my home

Salmon Season is Underway!

Hope everyone is doing well and getting excited for the Holiday weekend.   Sorry for the lapse of reports, the day after my last report was not a good one.  I was in a dirt bike accident and now unfortunately I’m laid up for awhile.  I broke my arm so running a boat this month will be out of the question.  Not to worry though, will still be posting fishing

Summer is coming to an end!

Hard to believe summer is coming to an end.  Kids are heading back to school and soon my Salmon season will be starting.   Due to the cooler water this summer from all the storm cells we have received.  We do have a few Salmon around along with some Summer Run Steelhead (Skamanian’s).  We have actually hooked a Steelhead every month this year since January.  That is just one of

It’s heating up on the Pere Marquette River! 7/20/17 Fishing Report

Sorry for the lapse in reports, things have been a little crazy around here.  Spent a couple more weeks under the weather and on the couch.  Now I’m back in full swing, guiding for Trout on my favorite river.   The Pere Marquette has been hit or miss on the Trout fishing as of lately.   The river is in good shape, you find the water is a little dirtier

Summer has began. When will the storms end?

We have had quite a wierd Trout Season this year on the Pere Marquette River.   The hatches have come and gone with hot muggy weather and so many storm cells coming in and out of the area. These storms have punished us with heavy rains and high water.  Sure recipe for filling trout up and keeping them from looking up.   We have still managed to get some quality fish and this high water

Summer Begins, Hex are Popping, Trout are looking up!

The Pere Marquette River is finally dropping from all the rain. Last week we had some hot days and muggy nights up here a perfect recipe to get the Hex hatch going and it did.  Bugs really started to pop, the only problem was with all the rain the Trout couldn’t pick them off the surface and would imagine a lot of the fish were full from all the goodies

Hex’s are just around the bend

Trout fishing on the Pere Marquette last  couple of weeks has been tough. With the New Moon and lack of bugs in the evening.  The fish which normally would be sipping on a smudges board of bugs this time of year really haven’t been feeding on top at all.  Are Drakes came to early and were to abundant ,this really filled the fish up.  So lately its been a game of

Some warmwater fishing was on the menu this week

Sorry for a lapse in reports!  Instead of riding my Mountain Bike or Dirtbike on such a nice Holiday weekend, I was riding the couch.  Things are better now and I’m back on the river.    The river is in pretty good shape, came up a little with some rain we received last Sunday night.   The Trout fishing has been very spotty. The Gray Drakes are starting to fizzle out now ,
