I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe and healthy. Crazy times in our world right now, this whole virus epidemic, State on lockdown and some weird looking dude with a Tiger all over the internet which I have not seen nor want to see.  Trying to stay away from all the media junk right now it’s getting a little out of hand if you ask me. The Pere

The Pere Marquette River is in great shape. With a little rain last week the river level bumped up a little and has still shows a slight stain to it. Steelhead fishing remains consistent through out the river system. With a mix bag of old and new fish. Still haven’t seen any big pushes of chrome yet just small pushes here and there which is good. The run isn’t coming

The Pere Marquette River is now on the drop.  With rains last week and melting snow the river was into and over it’s banks.  The surprising thing was with such high water, it wasn’t  really dirty. It held a nice tea stain throughout the week, making for some great Steelhead fishing.  Now that it’s on the drop were finding a few bright fish here and there in the dark water

Last week on the Pere Marquette River the river was low and clear  with unseasonal warm water temperatures for this time of year.  The water started to come up a bit on Sunday with some snow melt and we have a wet week ahead. Hopefully this is the recipe to bring some fresh Chrome Steelhead into all the rivers.   Steelhead fishing remains good, you can find fish through out

Winter and Spring look to be having a tug of war up here.  Last weekend Spring was in the air along the Pere Marquette River. The birds were singing, sun was shining and the fish seemed a little happier too.  We even heard a few ( cheeseburger birds) in the tree tops. 😃 The river has dropped a little and cooled off a bit. Steelhead numbers are low however. We’re

Winter  along the Pere Marquette River has been great.  The river right now is slightly up with a nice little stain to it and the water temps the last few weeks have been quite warm for this time of year in the high thirties and low forties.   We did lose a little more snow over the weekend which brought the river up a little.   What happened to Winter? 

The Pere Marquette River dropped in level over the last week and half.  The flows however are still fast , making it difficult to wade some areas. So be careful out there. Steelhead fishing remains good somedays and harder on others. Typical for this time of year, it’s winter fishing.  The great thing this year, no shelf ice and lately we don’t even have to chip ice out of the

Hope everyone is enjoying the New Year !!!They weren’t kidding when they predicted this Weather Roller Coaster this Winter.   The Pere Marquette River is once again high from recent rains we saw Thursday and Friday night and into Saturday which then turned into freezing rain and snow.  Seams as if once a week now the river comes up into or over the banks. We have been riding the Rollercoaster.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year !!!! Hope everyone  had a safe and Happy Holidays with their friends and families.  Hard to believe we are in a New Decade.   I would say that 2019 was the year of personal bests not only for myself but my fishing family.  Just like the weather prediction for Winter, 2019 was a bit of a roller coaster on the fishing side of things. It was a

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to everyone !!!! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year !!! My Pere Marquette Steelhead Season is starting to wind down now for the year.   Fishing has been hit or miss on the swing.  Water levels dropped and cleared, with the warmer weather this week and over the weekend we might see some run off from snow melt bringing the water up and
