5-31-08 Fishign Report

Fishing remains fair if you get nice warm weather with no gale force winds you will have a good hatch fishing......Both Big Larry,,Dan-o, and Jim had on fish that were pushing the 20"barrier but 4x and wood that big browns dive for when hooked will keep us turning at night,,,,,Overall we had great fishing for just getting into the fly fishing with dry fly's thing

5-29-08- !!Put on the Brakes We Got Drakes!!

Well if you like to fish on top (dry fly fish) the next month from today will be your best opportunities of the year. As many of you know the Pere Marquette has some of the most consistent mayfly fishing in the world and most of the browns are looking up.. Yesterday we had light sulphurs, tons of drakes a few caddis,,etc, etc,,,,,,,If you look closely (click on the picture) with my cheap digital camera you should be able to see the massive hatches over head,,,,,remember drake fishing is very good from 5:00 until dark,,,not like hex when the river is shut down until the main hatch,,,,,,If all you have ever done here (Baldwin Area) is fish the two main seasons you need to experience some of our great trout fishing. Grayling is a long drive f0r some::::: check out the Baldwin area tribs....

Today with Roger we had great fishing right when we launched we lost a couple very nice fish but landed countless 10-15inch fish and with a dry fly and a four weight that is a lot of funnnn in my book fishing small dry fly's is my favorite thing to do......

Our guides have some openings for the next month of hatch fishing,,,,,
Give us a call

Baldwin Area Fishing Report

Hi guys fishing still stays steady,,,,,,,,Salmon Smolt and really light line were the key,,,,,small stuff rules when it's clear,,,,,trout are still feeding on the film but no real hatches of any kind on the big tailwater to the north,,,,,water is really low and at 6:00p.m. the water temp was 60 degrees,,,,so the fish have a little spunk,,,,,,,,,,,

p.s. great last of light double header Bill and George!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Steelhead fishing is starting to wind down a bit but so have the fisherman,,,,even with the cloudy skies all day the bite was tough,,,the fishing in the dark water was really good though,,,,,trout and steel were not chasing streamers either,,,,,overall we did have a very fun day and I am sure have a next generation of day Tony and Kevin
