The look of fall

It was another great week chasing Salmon on the Pere Marquette River.   It’s finally starting to look a lot like Fall up here with the trees starting to change into the vibrant colors. The temps however though have still felt like summer with highs in the 70’s and even 80’s.  We did receive some rain last week which brought the river up a little which we desperately need. It’s very

Feels more like summer, than fall!

The calendar says it’s Fall, but it still feels a lot like summer up here!  Salmon fishing on the Pere Marquette River is still fishing good. The warmer weather however, is forcing the fish to spawn quickly and they are fading fast in the system. Some rain in the forecast this week will be nice. Water is low and clear. Some additional rain should push in another fresh batch of

Fall Has Arrived

Last week Wednesday marked the first day of Fall and it even felt like it on the banks of the Pere Marquette River.  We did see quite a bit of rain last week and much cooler weather.   The river managed to come a bit and more Kings worked their way into the river.   Salmon fishing is still good. You can find fish throughout the whole river system.  You can find

Salmon Run is in Full Swing

The King Salmon run is in full swing on the Pere Marquette River.   You can find fish scattered throughout the whole river system.  Most of the fish are still in the deeper runs and pools with a few fish starting to spawn. The river is now low and clear with the summer like weather were still having up here. Looks like a little rain and some cooler weather this week.

Wild Storms and Salmon

The calm before and after the storm produced some good fishing.  If you were not aware, last Tuesday afternoon we saw a horrific storm blow through the Baldwin area.  This storm was unreal – packing  60+ mph winds and baseball size hail.  Trees went down, and many vehicles and homes ruined from the giant hail smacking them as if a major league baseball player was throwing fast balls.  Power was

Hoppertunities and early morning Trico’s

Hope everyone is doing well! It’s hard to believe summer is winding down!  Kids around here are starting school, football is starting, and King Salmon will be heading up the rivers soon.  We could see some Salmon coming in over the weekend from the heavy rains and storms we had Friday and Saturday night.  The river is on the rise and getting dirty, especially in the lower stretches.  At this

River is on the rise and more heavy rains expected

This week is looking like a soaker with a significant amount of rain in the forecast through Thursday morning the Pere Marquette River is going to come up quick. The amount of rain we are seeing so far it could even become blown out by the end of the week.    Trout fishing last week was pretty good,   the Terrestrial fishing is improving on top and the Nymphing and small

Brown Trout and Roosters

Sorry for the lapse in reports, took a little time off from the river last week and enjoyed some epic views and great friends on the beaches of Baja.   We were Rooster fishing once again trying to that Grande from the beach on the fly rod.  This as one who has done it will know it’s no easy task and I feel especially blessed to put my hands around one

Last week Began and Ended with a Bang

Hope everyone enjoyed their Holiday weekend. Last week was a great week of Trout fishing on the Pere Marquette River. We finally got the rain we needed, and the river and their fish were happy.  The water had a nice tea stain to it and with ideal water temps made it easy for the fish to find a food source.  Streamers worked well in the beginning of the week and

Much Needed Rain

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the week.  The Pere Marquette River and a lot of Western Michigan is finally receiving the rain we have been in dire need of.   Looks like by Monday the river could become high and dirty.   This Trout season has been a roller coaster of weather patterns. From heat waves to droughts, cold fronts, and everything else in between has made it for an
