Fishing Reports

Winter Has Landed

Winter has landed on the Pere Marquette Water River.  Last week was a mess of snow, sleet and rain or as I like to call it “Steelhead weather. ”  The river came down a bit but flows are still fast in some areas and the middle to lower sections are higher and a bit dirtier. Steelhead are scattered through out the whole river system.  Still not great numbers of fish

Recipe = “Dash of Steelhead”

Once again the Pere Marquette River had high water last week from rain and snow.  It started to drop by the weekend but is now on the rise again from rain on Sunday.   This high water should of been the perfect recipe to bring in a good amount of chrome Steelhead.  Unfortunately, its hard to tell how many are really here with the constant high water.   Covering a

Woods and the Water – A special time of year

This last week I took a little time off of the river to enjoy some Upland Hunting and a little fishing with friends and family.  I always feel really blessed living up here. There are so many great things to do all year round, right at your door step.  When you have two pointing doggies  as your kids they pretty much tell you” it’s time to go hunting”.   There

That’s a Wrap

Fall has finally arrived on the banks of the Pere Marquette River. The Leaves are starting to pop in all there vibrant Orange, Yellow’s and Red’s.  The river came up again with another shot of rain, I don’t recall ever seeing such a wet fall in quite a long time. It has been good for the river and hopefully will make for a better fall and winter Steelhead Season.

The Look, Smell, and Feel of Fall is finally in the air!

The Pere Marquette River Level is finally starting to come back down after another high water event last week. There are a few New King Salmon around that came in on the rain along with a few Coho and Steelhead.  Flows are still pretty fast so fish are on the move.  Mornings and evenings are getting much cooler and the rivers starting to get that essence of dying Salmon. The

First Fall Color of the Year

The Pere Marquette River fished well last week for migratory King Salmon and resident Brown Trout. Last week we mixed it up a bit. Taking advantage of the higher dirtier water and some really good Trout Anglers. We spent a couple days stripping streamers for Trout which really payed off. It was some of the best Trout fishing I had seen all year. These fish are just absolutely stunning this

Another Great Week Chasing King Salmon

The Pere Marquette River is dropping now and starting to clear.   You find the further you get up stream the clearer the water is.  This last shot of rain did bring in a push of King Salmon in to  the river.   You can now find Salmon scattered through out the whole Pere Marquette River.  Find these fish staging in pools  or around gravel spawning areas. Looks like some

Water is on the Rise!

Hope everyone who reads these reports is doing well.  Just wanted to get a quick river report up before the weekend.  The Pere Marquette River is rising with heavy rains we saw on Tues and Wed.  The river came up quick and was still on the rise this afternoon.  Clarity was getting bad too. With rains still forecasted for Friday it could be coming up even more.  Salmon fishing has

Change of Seasons

The Maple Trees are starting to show a hint of Orange along the banks of the PM river. Salmon are also starting to show up on there annual migration.  Nights are getting shorter and the mornings have been much cooler, which is a blessing keeping the mosquitoes at bay for awhile.  Football started this week meaning only one thing the seasons are changing.  Last week once again was spent Trout

Summer is starting to fade

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. Which is also filling the fish up  with the food washing down.  Sunday we saw a good little
