Fishing Reports

Be Careful what you wish for!

Be careful what you wish for !!!! The Pere Marquette River came up quite a bit since Tuesday.  Heavy rains hit the area Monday night and on off throughout the week. Right now, it’s high and will probably still be rising if we see more rain on Friday as predicted. Fishing has been mostly Trout. Chucking Streamers at the banks and playing a little game of cat and mouse. We’re

Much Needed Rain

Hope everyone is doing well. Trout fishing the last few weeks hasn’t been too easy on the Pere Marquette River.  Fishing has been pretty much good or bad depending on the weather.  One day it’s snowing and the next it’s sunny and warm. We could really use some rain. The river level has been at an all time low until recently. The river did come up a little with the

Finding fish using a variety of tactics

We finally received some much-needed rain on the banks of the Pere Marquette River a week ago.  River level did come up quite a bit and the lower you went into the river system the dirtier it was. With the colder weather this week the river is dropping fast and getting clear.  The lower river sections still have a nice stain to them, while the upper stretches are starting to

Covering a lot of water

Steelhead Season on the Pere Marquette is winding down. Warmer temperatures earlier in Spring, allowed Steelhead to go through their spawning cycle and start their trip back out to the Lake a little earlier than normal.  The river is very low for this time of year and clear. A good rain would probably bring another push of fish up the river.  Still finding a few fish, but we’re covering a

Much Needed Rain

The Peeper Frog’s are peeping. Birds are singing. The Grouse are drumming on the banks of the Pere Marquette River!  Spring finally seems to be settling in up here. The Pere Marquette River fished well for Steelhead, last week. You can find fish scattered throughout the whole river system. With warmer weather these fish are going through their cycle and dropping fast. Some rain today will hopefully bump up the

MARCH MADNESS

The Pere Marquette River fished well last week for Steelhead.  The river level dropped quite a bit and the water still has a decent stain to it. Look for the P.M. to start to clear this week and drop even without any rain in the forecast.  Steelhead remain scattered throughout the whole river system.  We’re seeing a few fresh Spring fish however not as much as expected for the higher

BIGGER and BRIGHTER

The Pere Marquette River bumped up significantly last week.  By Friday it was into the banks and very dirty.  Over the weekend it has started to drop, current is fast still but clarity is a little better.  For flies last week, ” Bigger and Brighter” was key. Clown Eggs in Nectar of the God’s and Hubba Bubba worked good and bigger Egg Sucking Leeches, Fry Patterns worked well too. A

Could use a bump in the water level

Steelhead fishing on the Pere Marquette River was good, despite some very cold days last week.   The river level dropped a lot over the last five days though and is getting clear.  Looks like some rain in the forecast this week, which should get rid of some more snow and bring water levels up.   Not seeing a lot of bright New Steelhead entering the system yet mostly older Fall and

Hopefully spring has Sprung!

The arctic blast has hopefully come to an end on the Pere Marquette River.  Steelhead fishing remains good with a mixture of old Winter fish and few fresh Spring fish around.  Water levels are still low despite the warmer temperatures.  We had a lot of snow up here and it’s melting slow look for water to rise when the swamps finally let loose, just a matter of time.  For now,

Good Karma

The river is in good shape. It has some color still and is a little warmer for this time of year. I Do see it cooling off this week with the winter like temperatures hitting the area.  Steelhead and Trout fishing is consistent on Nymphs and Egg Flies. Try smaller Clown Eggs and Nukes in brighter colors and for Nymph’s bigger Stoneflies , Steelhead Bugger’s and Hex Nymphs can fish
