Opening weekend of trout season was typical of the U.P. with cold temps and high water! The good news is many of the local streams have settled down and are very fish able right now. The larger systems are running high and we still have some snow and ice to get rid of. The small streams that just opened up are a great bet and many are loaded up with spring steelhead and they smelt are joining them. We will be running our spring steelhead trips for a couple more weeks and then its on to resident trout and hopefully some dry fly action by the middle of the month if the weather cooperates.
