Pere Marquette Fishing Report

June 28th, 2014

PM Fishing Report
Brown Trout Release

Even with recent rains and water clarity not the best trout were still looking up and hunting along the banks for easy meals. Hoppers and Damsels are on the menu and browns and rainbows are eager to look up during the day for these foam based patterns. An easy to tie Damsel pattern that we did a step-by-step can be viewed here, and the standard Chernobyl Hopper will always do you well.

Don't forget to drop a size 16 or 18 bead head nymph off your hopper pattern if things are getting tough. With so many summer BWO's coming off trout are used to eating small nymphs as well. Hopper dropper combo's can be deadly.

With a summer polar vortex in the forecast for the week, I hate those words. Water temps are going to drop so slowing down your presentation is going to work best, so the all might nymph should really work, but during good hatches of BWO's fish should be looking up for smaller mayfly patterns.
