Fishing continues to be productive on a day to day basis, but we are working for our fish this year as they are scattered throughout the system. Here one day gone the next.with water levels lower than last year and the Spring flood levels and temps ahead of schedule fish are getting their business done and dropping back quickly. The trout are on the egg bite pretty strong and the streamer game for drop backs should gain some momentum over the next 2 week, so look for opportunities to open up as Spring progresses. As the steelhead fishing eventually fades into the sunset, look for the trout to get comfortable again without angry chrome around and start to get into kill mode and chase our streamers around again! 231-228-7135

Currently we are looking at:

Flow:  Meter is frozen, I'm guessing around 750 CFS and slowly rising, 

Visibility: 60 inches

Water temperature at mid-day: 38 and slushy

Best time of day to fish: Late mornings through late afternoon after things warm up and before they quickly cool back down.

Indicator: Phantom Black Bird or a Sheffield

Recommended leader: 9' 0X

Recommended Tippet: 2X-3X

Best rod outfit: Steelhead - 10' 7WT or  11' 6WT Floating line, need huge drag system.

Best techniques - Indicator with and egg pattern and a caddis nymph or a stone fly for steelhead and trout.

Comments: The weather has broke, fish are on the move and so are people. This will probably be one of our best runs in the past decade. Water levels are perfect. Watch for stone flies crawling on the river banks. Nymphs are going to be real big until the steelies begin dropping eggs.

7-day outlook: Things haven't looked this good in several months. for the next ten days we are looking at mid to high 40's and low 50's. http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/
