Fishing Reports

We’re having a heat wave

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoyed there Holiday weekend. The Pere Marquette River is warming up  quickly. Please check water temperature’s before attempting to fish. The lower you go in the system the warmer it can be.  The upper stretches are now reaching the mid sixties even in the mornings.  Remember 70 degree water is not good for Trout, best to switch to warm water fishing like Bass.

River is in Great Shape!

Last week was finally a week of no hard rains to bring the river up and dirty we saw a little rain this week. The river is in great shape though.  Making it much better Dry Fly conditions then in the last few weeks.   Fishing for Trout on the Pere Marquette last week was a blast.  Trout seemed to be more eager to eat again and were looking up

River Came Up Again!

The Pere Marquette is still fishing pretty tough for Trout, we saw another big rain system last week.  The river once again came up and became really dirty.    The water has now dropped and started to clear, flows are fast so be careful if wading.   The fish are really full from all the easy meals floating down during the high water.  We’re seeing plenty of bugs, Drakes, Sulphers,

Brown Trout, Bow’s, Bluegills, and Bass

The Pere Marquette is in much better shape then the last two weeks.   The river would get into great shape and then we would see heavy amounts of rain which would completely blow it out with high , dirty water.   This recipe makes for some tough Trout fishing this time of year. The fish become full with the higher water and faster flows, food becomes easy for them

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

Mix it up in High Dirty Water

The Pere Marquette River came up quite a bit last week with heavy rains from Tuesday night through Thursday.  As of Friday afternoon it was into its banks  and very dirty.   The warmer weather is starting to get the bugs to pop.  Seeing some Hendrickson’s and still smaller Stoneflies around and some Blue Winged Olives on the cloudy days.  Not a lot of fish rising yet just a few

Shaking Hands with Steelhead

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
