Ol man winter showed up in grand fashion to say the least… In literally a 3 hour time span we went from late fall weather to downright middle of winter conditions. This put an abrupt halt to fishing for a few days, many lakes have froze in a 2 day time span after this brutal weather. Many areas of the UP got around 2 feet of snow in a 36 hr time span, should make for some interesting hunting on rifle opener this Saturday. On the bright side, some great fish have been caught as of lately. Persistency & great presentation has equaled success. Both streamer fishing as well as nymphing at this time is productive, fishing varying techniques allows the angler to fish to different fish.

The Pere Marquette looks good and is fishing well if your into the pursuit of some brown trout on a streamer. While the browns are on or for the most part really close to gravel. We did find a few in the dropback position. Late Oct is historically the spawning time for these resident trout and if they are on the rocks we leave them alone. But post-spawn trout love to take a streamer and put on the pounds after mother nature calls.

Water levels are low and clear but temps are perfect (before friday and chance of snow) for some really good streamer fishing. Best patterns were baitfish in more natural colors because we had most of the day with a high sun.

Steelhead report in the upper section is slow, as fish have moved out with water levels clearing. We did not fish steelhead this day, but from other anglers this the feeling that I got. With Coho's and still a few Chinook also spawning plenty of eggs running down the river.
