Pere Marquette Fishing Report

PM Fishing Report

Steve and Jen with a double dipper!

Fishing for Kings on the PM still remains productive right now and yes the fish are still big! There are some other cool fish running around right now as well such as a few steelhead and coho salmon along with the very glutinous brown trout. Some days as of late have provided some good variety to our catch. Best flies have been eggs, eggs, and more eggs for the trout (and if your lucky an early steelhead) and for salmon just about everything has been working; eggs, egg sucking leeches, caddis, hex nymphs, black stones…..etc. The water levels have dropped and cleared pretty quick the last few days and in some of the higher pressured sections the fish are getting a bit spooky at times. Fishing has been pretty good up and down the river, however they are just not quite everywhere any more as the last push has spread out a bit now. Some more rain and a shift in the wind from the North again should bring the remainder of the salmon back to the river to spawn. A lot of fish have hit the gravel in the past few days, but there are still plenty of fresh fish in most of the deeper runs at this time.

Tight Lines,
