Fishing Reports

Working for it

Hope everyone is doing well and had a great Thanksgiving with their family and friends.  Hard to believe that December is here that’s until walk outside in the morning. We have snow on the ground and the mornings have that Winter bite to them now.  Steelhead fishing really hasn’t changed much the Pere Marquette is still very low and clear and to make matters worse it is now cooling off

Riding Fall’s Roller Coaster

Steelhead fishing has been a roller coaster ride the last few weeks. Lots of ups and downs and honestly, it’s been hard with extremely low/clear water and not a lot of fish in the system, covering a lot of water was key with hopes of finding a fish or two to take a fly.   This weekend we finally saw some much-needed rain and the river bumped up a bit but

Steelhead on the Swing and Bird Dogs

The Pere Marquette River is very low and clear. You can find a few Steelhead around but good luck trying to get them interested. Covering a lot of water is key right now.  We desperately need a change in weather to bring the river up and more fish into the system.   Last week’s fishing was on and off, cloudy days and days where there was less fishing pressure you could

Another King Season comes to an end

Salmon Season ended for myself and my clients last week, just like the Seasons changing in the weather the Salmon too were ending their cycle. I would like to thank all of you who joined me for another great Fall of Salmon fishing.  It was a great King Season! I don’t recall any really tough days as far as not finding fish in the river system.  It is however, that time

The look of fall

It was another great week chasing Salmon on the Pere Marquette River.   It’s finally starting to look a lot like Fall up here with the trees starting to change into the vibrant colors. The temps however though have still felt like summer with highs in the 70’s and even 80’s.  We did receive some rain last week which brought the river up a little which we desperately need. It’s very

Feels more like summer, than fall!

The calendar says it’s Fall, but it still feels a lot like summer up here!  Salmon fishing on the Pere Marquette River is still fishing good. The warmer weather however, is forcing the fish to spawn quickly and they are fading fast in the system. Some rain in the forecast this week will be nice. Water is low and clear. Some additional rain should push in another fresh batch of

Fall Has Arrived

Last week Wednesday marked the first day of Fall and it even felt like it on the banks of the Pere Marquette River.  We did see quite a bit of rain last week and much cooler weather.   The river managed to come a bit and more Kings worked their way into the river.   Salmon fishing is still good. You can find fish throughout the whole river system.  You can find

Salmon Run is in Full Swing

The King Salmon run is in full swing on the Pere Marquette River.   You can find fish scattered throughout the whole river system.  Most of the fish are still in the deeper runs and pools with a few fish starting to spawn. The river is now low and clear with the summer like weather were still having up here. Looks like a little rain and some cooler weather this week.

Wild Storms and Salmon

The calm before and after the storm produced some good fishing.  If you were not aware, last Tuesday afternoon we saw a horrific storm blow through the Baldwin area.  This storm was unreal – packing  60+ mph winds and baseball size hail.  Trees went down, and many vehicles and homes ruined from the giant hail smacking them as if a major league baseball player was throwing fast balls.  Power was

Hoppertunities and early morning Trico’s

Hope everyone is doing well! It’s hard to believe summer is winding down!  Kids around here are starting school, football is starting, and King Salmon will be heading up the rivers soon.  We could see some Salmon coming in over the weekend from the heavy rains and storms we had Friday and Saturday night.  The river is on the rise and getting dirty, especially in the lower stretches.  At this
