Trout fishing has been picking up in the area and we now have dry fly action on the warmer days. Rivers have crested after a few storms came through and most of the larger rivers are on the high side right now. Give us a call if you need to know what a specific system is at. Caddis, stones and some hendricksons are around and we will be looking for brown drakes soon. Steelhead are still present and many are targeting them. Good luck and stay safe in the high water.
A mixture of drop-backs and (still) fresh steelhead are being caught in our local rivers; some being more holding than others. With this recent cold weather (and snow), the momentum we had to transition into dry fly trout fishing may slow down a bit, and temps look like they will be mild for the next week, mostly being in the lower to mid 60's. Once we start having some warmer days, it will pick back up again.
Water levels have mellowed out and many streams are on the low side. Temps have spiked and we are seeing some dry fly action! Caddis are hatching right now and will pick up in intensity as soon as we get some warmer temps. Steelhead are still an option and they will be around in decent numbers for another week or so.I will be downstate on the Au sable next week and I will be returning with my drift boat so guided float trips will be a option soon!
