At the risk of sounding redundant I’ll simply refer you to John’s report he put up yesterday for more details, but the long and short of it is that fishing has been pretty solid most days in most sections. Landing these beast this year has been challenging at times, but we’re putting our share in the net on both hardware and fly trips!

Had a fun day with Doug and Mike last Friday!

I had Saturday and Sunday off spending those days having fun in other ways, but it was back at it on Monday… As far as I know (Haven’t had a chance to check the calendar.) I do still have September 19 & 20 open as well as October 8, 10 & 15. After that it opens up a bit for mixed bag or Steelhead fishing. We have a guide or guides as well as lodging available on most days. Give the shop a call to check on booking! 1-231-745-3529

This one actually beached itself right near us and we rescued it!

It was a great day of gear fishing with Perry and Jeff!

The water is very low and clear so not all holes are holding fish with some substantial blanks in the system, but those with depth and/or lots of structure (wood) seem to be holding plenty. Big fish this year equals big fun!!

Had some great action with Mike and Tom on Tuesday, but those monsters avoided our net! Thanks guys, great time...

Yesterday can only be described as epic. Almost constant action with my longest running client (25 1/2 years now!) Paul as well as Dave in my boat and Jeff in John’s. Simply put we got on some hot fish and had some hot action…

It was a good day!

Not going to publish all our fish pics, but here’s a couple of Pauls and a couple of Dave’s. (John posted a few of Jeff’s…)

The traditional venison lunch with Paul.

I had to catch one!

Jeff got some fantastic drone footage I’ll use and share as soon as I get some time to do it!

Here’s one of the stills.

I’ve got to wrap this up now and get ready for another fun day with long time clients once again, but I will “try” to post up a more detailed report sometime shortly after the weekend… Till next time, tight lines…
