River Update 4-17-14
Weather is being so unpredictable, and all the rains we have been getting have had the water levels soaring high. Levels have come down some, but still high and dirty waters make the River unfishable. Water levels being so high have made it impossible to be on the River to get the Winter clean up done. Water levels need to come down and Water temps need to come up to bring those much anticipated Steelies down the River. After this long Winter of seeing them swim around in my head, I am ready to start seeing them in the River. Hopefully they will arrive on their due date as long as Mother Nature pulls no more tricks on us. Stay tuned in for updates. I am looking forward to seeing and fishing with all my friends and clients soon, and also meeting new ones. I have had plenty of time this Winter during some down time to tie some great Streamers, they will be at Trophy Water's Fly Shop in Mio to purchase if you wish. I'm booked as of now for Steelhead, but you can call to check for cancellations. Booking fast for May and June, so call early to get prime dates. I'm starting 2014 with a new format on Photo Page, I will post photos weekly of what we caught the week before, that way they will be new & fresh weekly for everyone to see current and enjoy! You can also check my Au Sable River Weather link above and click on webcam and that will give you updated pics of the condition of the river. God Bless and see you soon.You can check my above USGS River Flow page for water temps on the Au Sable on a daily basis.
April till 1st week of May (short time!!)
We fish for Steelhead on some pretty private waters and that's all I will say abut that. We fish from a Lund Alaskan Jon Boat and use Egg patterns as well as Nympths. Big Fish! Big Fun! I generally book from year to year, but you can call to see if I have any cancellations if you are interested in booking a Steelie trip.
