Michigan Fly Fishing At It's Best
Epic adventures and fish await on the Big Manistee River, Pere Marquette, AuSable River, Pine River, Bear Creek, and Big Sauble River. Trophy brown trout and rainbow trout are available year round. Spring steelhead run in early March to April. Salmon enter the rivers in late August to September. Fall steelhead and lake run browns start to show in late October and November, and Winter steelhead can be found in the river systems December through February.
Winter Steelhead Bite is Good
Winter Steelhead fishing has been quite good. The fish are hungry and more predictable than other times of the year. Fishing has been the most productive with Trout Beads and Rag Eggs, although swinging and nymphing are not off the table. Look for Trout and Steelhead to be in deep slow pools adjacent to wood and structure. This time of year a slow presentation is always your best bet.
