The weather has been great for any outdoor enthusiast.  The fall color is at its peak up here , everything is so vibrant along the banks of the river.   River came up a bit with some recent rain we had

Rains Came and so did the fish!

The rain came and so did the Salmon, fishing last week was much better a lot of fresh fish were moving up the river.   The water didn’t really come up too much, just got a little dirty.   It could be on the rise by Monday, with the rain we received over the weekend.  Salmon are scattered through the whole river system and you can find them in pools .pockets and

Fall color is starting on the banks of the Pere Marquette River

The Fall color has started to pop along the banks of the Pere Marquette River.  The Fall Season is officially here and so are the Salmon and the Anglers that pursue them.   The river is very busy right now seeing more fishing pressure than usual due to the great weather we’re having up here. Been awesome to be outside enjoying this great watershed.  Salmon numbers are down but that could be

A few kings around in the low, clear water

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this great weather.   Unfortunately, the Pere Marquette River could use some rain and some more King Salmon in it.   The run so far is very small, not a lot of fish around. The Kings that are present are big again this year so be prepared for some good battles !!!!   The Salmon are really scattered through the river system,  a good rain and hopefully

Cool mornings, Steelhead, and fishing with Family !!!!

The Pere Marquette River fished well last week and is in pretty good shape. The river is still low in the upper stretches but surprisingly has cooled off quite a bit in the last week.  Trico’s are going strong in the morning along with Olive’s on the rainy days and few Ants are showing too.  Hopper’s and assorted Terrestrial patterns are fishing well on the warmer days.  Smaller buggers, streamers

Summer is going too fast!

Where has the summer gone?  Due to this COVID deal we lost our Spring and summer is moving way to fast. I saw my first King Salmon moving up stream last week.  The Pere Marquette like the weather was kind of up and down.   The Trout bite was a little tougher with fronts coming in and the river being very low and clear.   Fish still seem to be looking up,

Nice Cool Down

The Pere Marquette River finally cooled off enough to wet a line. With that horrible heat wave a couple weeks ago it was good to see some cooler less humid temps this last week. River is low and clear, finding Trout looking up near structure and in the shade.  Water conditions are due to change fast though as were in for some pretty good storms on Sunday.   A buffet of

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
