I am pleased to announce that it has stopped raining and water levels are falling to fish able levels across the U.P. I have been itching to get out for trout on dries, but the high water levels have made most of my favorite spots inaccessible. The small spring creeks have been fishing really good when the weather has cooperated and we have been seeing bugs and rising trout on a few of them for around three weeks. The larger rivers have had bugs, but the trout haven't responded quite yet. This is going to change any day now and the hatches are going intensify and with any luck take on a more consistent pattern. I am seeing decent numbers of hendricksons and BWO's along with a few caddis and stones. While we have been waiting for safe river conditions the drift boat has seen some use targeting warmwater species and the fishing has been pretty good. The larger bass seem to be deep still, but pike and musky are still in close. Topwater action isn't on yet so streamers on sinking lines have been the best bet. The next month is my favorite time to be on the water so give the shop a call if you would like to get out wading or in the boat with us.
