The shop hours are 7am to 7pm daily!!!


The river is low and clear, fishing pressure is high and the fish are spooky!  We have very low water for this time of year and we are working for “biters”!

Eggs are slowly taking over with all the spawning happening.  Early girl, Cream Clowns, estaz eggs and mini rag eggs in pale colors have been productive for me this week.  Stones, Hexes, fry and Pheasant tails have generated some bites too.  The fry bite is blowing up…we have caught a couple this week on the swing and even the strip! Once the water warms up it will even get better.  I have even spotted a couple rising trout on the warmer afternoons; something to keep in mind….trout season is quickly approaching!

Please resect your fellow angler and their space.  “Ask before you cast” is the best policy.  The golden role applies…treat others as you would like to be treated.  Let’s all have fun and enjoy this great resource!

This spring is off to a great start and only getting better!  I don’t have much available for the next few weeks, but we do have some open days here and there with JR, Donnie and Kam…give us a call to book a guide trip and/or lodging  231-745-3529.  Plus, it’s never too early to get your trout trips on the books.  Gray Drakes in late May – late June, Sulfurs in late May – early June, Hexes in mid – June to early July…plus, streamers anytime!!!

A picture is worth a thousand words…Thank you!!!!

This spring has been a great time thus far!  I have been enjoying myself and looking forward to a better year…Cheers to 2021!!!!  Have fun, be safe and catch one, or two… Trout season is right around the corner!
