A New Season Begins

That’s a wrap, Salmon Season 2018 is in the books.  Thanks to everyone who joined me this fall. It was great to see and fish with everyone.   There are still plenty of King’s in the river though. The river level did come up towards the end of the week.  With the higher water and leaves, the water has good color to it.  You can find Salmon through out the

Seasons are Changing

The Pere Marquette River is starting to show its vibrant  Fall colors of orange, red and yellow’s as the leaves are starting to turn.   We still have been chasing King Salmon,there’s still plenty through out the whole river.   I will admit though that I’m getting really anxious to start targeting Chrome Steelhead on the swung fly.  Just last night for no reason at all I lined up my

Fall is arriving with King Salmon

 Starting to feel a little more like fall this last weekend with cooler mornings and nights. Other then Salmon in the river, there’s not a lot of sign of fall along the banks. The trees are just starting to change and the Mosquitoes are horrible. Never thought we would have to have the Theramacell’s and Off out in September.  The Pere Marquette River is still fishing well for King Salmon.

Kings Of The River

The Pere Marquette is back into shape since the heavy rains and storms.   The river is floatable now from M-37 to Upper Branch Bridge.  Big thank you to the Baldwin Canoe Rental, some Guides and U.S.F.S. for cleaning up the river.   River has dropped quite a bit and is clearing. You can find King Salmon through out the whole river system.  Look for fish to continue to start

The Storm of 2018! River Report 9.5.18

Last week turned into quite the mess in our area.  The weather turned ugly Tuesday night bringing heavy rains, high winds and two confirmed Tornados one hit Baldwin and one hit Idlewild. I have never seen so many trees and power lines down.  Thanks to everyone in our community for working so hard this last week. Clearing trees, debris and getting the power up again. It’s a mess up here

River is on the Rise

The Pere Marquette River is on the rise, we’re getting some much needed rain up here right now.  The river is getting dirty and coming up more.   A few Salmon started to show up in the river last week with the recent rains we had.  They were moving fast though, due to the dirty water.  Best bet was tossing crankbaits down river for more success.   Trout fishing was

The River is full of Hoppertunities!

Terrestrial Fishing on the Pere Marquette remains good.  All about Hoppertunity’s right now, somedays the bite has been better then others.   A mix bag of Crickets, Damsel, Cicada and Hopper ‘s have all worked well.  The River is extremely low and clear, a good cast in the right spot is key to success. Pics from this week.   Good friend and one of the best Ambassador’s for our Sport

How Low Will the Water Go?

Trout fishing on the Pere Marquette River has been up and down.  Some days like last Saturday and Sunday were awesome and now by mid week it’s getting harder. The river just keeps dropping in level and is getting clearer everyday. The fish are getting edgy and spooky.  Water temps are much cooler now  with the colder nights and mornings were seeing. Looks like we might get some rain over

Enjoy The Holiday!

It’s been a super busy week for me on the Pere Marquette River. Evening trips to early a.m. trips and late night trips, I have covered all the bases.   Fishing has been up and down still. Started to see a good daytime evening bite once again when temps warmed up and river started to clear.  Then heavy rains again on Tuesday night through Wed morning brought river up a
