This is going to be short and sweet.  The magical month of June is happening!!!  The river is low and clear, but running warm in the lower sections.  Gray Drakes, Damsels, Yellow Sallies, Big Stones, Iso’s and hexes are going to start hatching heavy any day!  Excellent time to be a trout fisher in northern Michigan.  I am having a great time and enjoying burning the candle at both ends right now.  With that being said, I do not have much time to report..Have to get ready for a guide trip.  We still have guides available and Lodging at the Motel…give us a call 231-745-3529.

Big Gray Drake hatch!!!

I am giving the hex water a couple days off during the recent heat wave, but after tonight it should be back to fishable water temps for catch and release.  Please try to keep an eye on the water temperature in the section you plan on fishing.  Please be responsible if you plan on releasing your fish.  There are three water monitoring stations-


Bowman’s Bridge

Maple Leaf/Taylor Road

The shop is stocked up with lots of great rods, reels, hex patterns, mice, hoppers, leaders, glow line, etc.  Please swing by to grab some gear, get a report or show off your recent catch.  We are open everyday 8am to 6pm.  Thanks for your support and loyalty!!!

Paul got rewarded a couple times with the lights on!!!

Day or night right now has great potential!  Bouncing big attractors durning the day and/or hexing and mousing after dark.  The hatch should gain moment and be in full swing over the weekend.  Good luck out there…enjoy the resource and please respect your fellow angler.

Joe and I took a “field trip” to some smaller water…great day!

We have LOTS of great fishing options right now.  Daytime attractors, streamers, evening hatches and nighttime mousing…pick your poison!  June is HERE and holds some of the BEST dry fly fishing Michigan has to offer!  Give us a call to book a guide trip…231-745-3529.  We would love to show you our beautiful river!
