The trend of an epic fall continues! We have seen plenty of beautiful Steelhead enter the river system, King Salmon are still in the Big river, as well as their cousin the Coho. Using anything small and flashy is your best bet for Coho; fly and conventional tackle for kings. Steelhead and brown trout are keyed in on eggs, but the swing bite isn't far behind. Chuck and duck (drift fishing, bottom bouncing) has produced the largest number of fish. However, indicator (nymphing) with beads has also been quite successful, and a fun and different way to fish for Steelhead this time of year. The beautiful colors of fall that Northern Michigan is known for are popping all over the river and our temperatures are slowly starting to fall. The upland bird hunts have been quite productive over the last few weeks, with plenty of table fare for the upcoming holidays. We are fully stocked up with a large assortment of egg flies, and the best selection of trout beads in our area.
