Salmon run strong in Pere Marquette

The upper flies-only stretch of the PM is seeing a strong run of salmon with the occasional steelhead in the mix. The usual assortment of flies are working well — eggs, green caddis, egg sucking leeches, etc.

Avoid walking on the active redds so those salmon can reproduce. And do what you can to fairly hook the salmon. While tempting to play a snagged fish, it reduces their ability to spawn. Plus, you have a much better chance to land that picture-worthy fish when it’s hooked in the mouth.
