As many in Michigan's U.P. start to turn their attention towards chasing BIG bucks in the woods we are still chasing a different kind of animal or fish that is. Many fellow outdoors people have turned their attention towards woods we are still on the rivers and the rain that we received has helped to bring our water levels up a bit.
The low water levels that we have dealt with over the summer and into the fall have kept us from the pursuit of our fall run fish steelhead, salmon, and lake run browns but not to worry as we have continued to fish our fall trout streams.
As the trees have all but shed their leaves and temperatures are falling faster than a lead balloon the hot ticket has become the nymphing game with the streamer game being next in line. That is not to say that we won't get one or maybe even two more sunny warm days where a bwo hatch may just come off as a tease for the dry fly enthusiast.
Just as an FYI this time of year we only recommend 1/2 day trips as the cold and weather can change at the drop of a hat. If you are willing to take on the weather we will still provide a full day but as I said the cold can really be a factor.
