The days are starting to get shorter and the nights and mornings cooler.  Summer unfortunately is slowly trickling into fall on the Pere Marquette River.    Trout fishing hasn’t been easy this week.  Once again with heavy rains and thunderstorms hitting the area on a weekly basis it’s bringing the river up.

Left the High Water for Salt Water and Sandy Beaches

As most of you know the Pere Marquette River was dangerously high last week. With a storm that came in two weekends ago that dumped down up to 12 inches or more of rain in some areas.

Spring of Streamers

Hope everyone enjoyed there Holiday Weekend.  The Pere Marquette River still remains high and off color, with the heavy rains we received last week.  This has definitely been the spring of casting streamers.
