Warm weather has returned, and so have the Bugs. After things were put on hold a bit last week with the cold weather, we are back on track with this weeks warmer temps. Hex are going strong on rivers across the state.

Late June Fly Fishing Report

As Summer (solstice) takes place on the 21st,  June starts to end and the night fishing really begins. Angler’s are looking for the nocturnal Hex Mayflies on the local trout rivers and some (Au Sable) have already begun and it’s about to begin on others (Manistee) if they haven’t already.
