Fishing Foam patterns during the summer months

Fishing Foam Patterns

Fishing Foam Patterns during the middle of the summer is pretty standard because there is less natural aquatic insects hatching.  Trout are keying in on terrestrials, like grasshoppers, ants, and beetles.  While simply throwing out a foam pattern into the

Michigan’s current dry spell has made the local fishing hit or miss.  We are still picking up smallmouth bass near structure and pike in slower moving spots.  Top flies for smallmouth have been desperate Housewives and BoogleBugs.  Chartreuse and White seem to be the top two fly colors.  With

I took some time off last week to fish with some long time clients/friends and we got into some very healthy trout on our outing.

July 26, 2018 – Finally Rain

After a prolonged spell of incredibly hot and dry weather we were finally blessed with some rain and cooler evening temperatures over the past week. With a few days of overcast skies, and the rain providing rivers with a much needed shot of cool water, trout fishing picked up a bit. Nymphing in the morning has been productive both locally and on northern trout streams.

The terrestrial bite is also improving, try fishing a big hopper with a nymph dropper for the best of both worlds. Hippy Stompers, Purple Patriots, and Missing Link Caddis are also great summertime prospecting patterns.

Bass fishing has also been good on the Rogue River, Grand River and Thornapple River. Baitfish patterns, Tequeelies and other rubber leg buggers have been most productive during the day.

Smalllmouth fishing is going full bore, its been a mix of sizes from 8-18 inchers. The best baits for me have been smallish minnow type crankbaits and size 2 or 3 inline spinners. Both top water and soft plastics have had their moments as well. On

Return of the king???

Mixed bag fishing continues, Although King Salmon are increasing in numbers, numbers are still on the light side. We are targeting Kings early, then dropping gear to the bottom most days to pick up a few Lake trout, copper lines are picking off the occasional Steelhead and Coho as well.

Flasher and meat rigs are getting it done for the kings, make sure you give the new familiar bite herring strips a try, real herring, slightly thicker more meaty cuts that in the past. Looks and fishes GREAT! Chrome spinnies and spin n glos are the ticket for trout, various spoons on coppers have been good at times as well…

Dates are going fast, get ahold of us for a day of fun on the water.
