Hard to remember a July in recent history where I have had to wear a stocking cap on the river daily, but nonetheless still much nicer than a sub zero night in February! Some great fly fishing opportunities here in the U.P. are available currently. Warm water species are active, Trout fishing is going good w the cool temps & a mixed bag of cold water species are available on the St Marys River. A wide variety of aquatic insects as well as baitfish have fish eating diversely. Water temps are still much below average for many areas, seems like with our weather pattern we should have cool water all summer long at this rate. Congrats to many, but Cindy takes the prize w her trophy below :)

Even with recent rains and water clarity not the best trout were still looking up and hunting along the banks for easy meals. Hoppers and Damsels are on the menu and browns and rainbows are eager to look up during the day for these foam based patterns. An easy to tie Damsel pattern that we did a step-by-step can be viewed here, and the standard Chernobyl Hopper will always do you well. Don't forget to drop a size 16 or 18 bead head nymph off your hopper pattern if things are getting tough. With so many summer BWO's coming off trout are used to eating small nymphs as well. Hopper dropper combo's can be deadly. With a summer polar vortex in the forecast for the week, I hate those words. Water temps are going to drop so slowing down your presentation is going to work best, so the all might nymph should really work, but during good hatches of BWO's fish should be looking up for smaller mayfly patterns.
