Now’s the time to start finding those fresh salmon in the holes in Pere Marquette. Based on what we saw this weekend in flies-only stretch, the salmon have just barely begun working the gravel beds. That means you’ve got to fish the dark water. Not every hole has fish but many of the expected (and unexpected) holes will have fish. Certainly more salmon on are on the way.
They kings are big! They’ll take you for ride, so rig up appropriately.
Plus, it looks like may trout have started keying in on eggs and small streamers. Great opportunity to hook up with large browns in the drop-offs.
