The Pere Marquette finally received some water last weekend. With some nasty weather on Sunday of heavy rain, and snow through Wednesday.  By Monday, the river was high with good color to it.  It’s now dropping and starting to clear.  You can find fish scattered throughout the whole river system right now.  Flies have been bigger Clown Egg’s now, and big, bright Streamers fished heavy to slow, fly speed has

The Pere Marquette is very low and clear.  Steelhead fishing remains tough in these conditions.  You can find Steelhead really scattered throughout the whole river system, just not a lot of them.  Look for fishing to continue to be tough as this week’s weather is going to feel more like late Spring then fall.   Presentation is a big key in these situations when pursuing these fish with fly rod and

It’s been a wet one up here on the Pere Marquette River.   We have received a good amount of rain the last three days bringing the water levels up and now it’s getting dirty.  Yesterday on my way out in the upper section, river was coming up quick.  Look for it to be high over the weekend.  Steelhead Season kicked into gear the last couple days it was a little

King Salmon fishing remains good on the Pere Marquette River.   This by far has been one of the nicest Summers and Fall’s we have seen in a while up here. The weather has been great for any outdoor enthusiast.  The fall color is at its peak up here , everything is so vibrant along the banks of the river.   River came up a bit with some recent rain we had

The rain came and so did the Salmon, fishing last week was much better a lot of fresh fish were moving up the river.   The water didn’t really come up too much, just got a little dirty.   It could be on the rise by Monday, with the rain we received over the weekend.  Salmon are scattered through the whole river system and you can find them in pools .pockets and

The Fall color has started to pop along the banks of the Pere Marquette River.  The Fall Season is officially here and so are the Salmon and the Anglers that pursue them.   The river is very busy right now seeing more fishing pressure than usual due to the great weather we’re having up here. Been awesome to be outside enjoying this great watershed.  Salmon numbers are down but that could be

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this great weather.   Unfortunately, the Pere Marquette River could use some rain and some more King Salmon in it.   The run so far is very small, not a lot of fish around. The Kings that are present are big again this year so be prepared for some good battles !!!!   The Salmon are really scattered through the river system,  a good rain and hopefully

The seasons are slowly starting to change on the Pere Marquette River.  With the cooler evenings and mornings and shorter days you can feel Fall starting to creep up.  The river is in good shape with some much-needed rains over the last couple of weeks the river came up a little and cooled off quite a bit.  Trout fishing has started to slow down a little with the cooler weather. 

The Pere Marquette River fished well last week and is in pretty good shape. The river is still low in the upper stretches but surprisingly has cooled off quite a bit in the last week.  Trico’s are going strong in the morning along with Olive’s on the rainy days and few Ants are showing too.  Hopper’s and assorted Terrestrial patterns are fishing well on the warmer days.  Smaller buggers, streamers

Where has the summer gone?  Due to this COVID deal we lost our Spring and summer is moving way to fast. I saw my first King Salmon moving up stream last week.  The Pere Marquette like the weather was kind of up and down.   The Trout bite was a little tougher with fronts coming in and the river being very low and clear.   Fish still seem to be looking up,
