Spring Has Sprung
Spring has arrived officially on the banks of the Pere Marquette River. Mother nature threw a little winter at us again a week ago. After seeing a couple Orioles along the river on Wednesday and finding a few Morel Mushrooms, I would say Spring has sprung. The river was pretty low and clear last week, did however come up with some heavy rains we saw on Thursday. Fishing was tough last week with the bright sun and clear water we worked hard but in the end got some great fish. It felt great to be rowing the boat again and catching up with my clients during all this craziness. Saw quite a few Hendrickson’s in the air last week and on the water not a lot of fish feeding though, do to the colder water temps. Look for Dry Fly fishing to start to heat up with the weather. Despite the clear water and sunny days we had the fly they wanted and stuck to it. I couldn’t believe what we ended up with. Not just some great fish, Scott got the grand slam of grand slams on the Pere Marquette River. We made some great memories last week. Thanks to everyone who joined me.
