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.

Burr, some cold weather here lately & even a few snowflakes in the air. In many areas of the Upper Peninsula the leaves are all off the trees and cold crisp mornings have a quite a bit of frost on the pumpkins. This time of year is great, I can’t get enough of the great opportunities that are available. It isn’t easy fishing, but the rewards are phenomenal. Water temps have been cooling daily and many streams are running well above average w all the wet weather we have had this fall. Some nice Steelhead are currently available, but some areas are lacking in fish numbers while others seem to have around normal amounts. Look for fish to continue to arrive as water temps drop and river levels stay higher than normal. Late fall offers some high opportunity for the predator as well….
