MOST AMAZING TIME OF YEAR!- AUTUMN IN MICHIGAN


                                                      ( fall steelhead picking up steam)
     
 SORRY FOR THE DELAY IN POSTING!..... WE PUT SO MUCH ON OUR FACE BOOK THREE PAGES...'SELECTIVITY TSS'....'GRAY DRAKE' ...AND 'MATTHEW SUPINSKI' PAGES...UNFORTUNATELY FACE BOOK IS THE HITS DRIVER AND MOST PEOPLE REACHED...I KNOW THERE ARE ADAMANT 'NON- FACE BOOKERS' OUT THERE, BUT WE POST PERTINENT INFO THERE AND YOU MIGHT WANT TO BREAK DOWN AND JOIN UP?....YOU DONT HAVE TO POST JUNK ON FACE BOOK...RREMEMBER...QUALITY IN...QUALITY OUT..IGNORE THE JUNK..:)...IF YOU WANT ANTINOMY , POST UNDER A FAKE NAME imho

After a very weak chinook salmon run..( it will be interesting to hear the summary comments from the DNR on this one...alewife bait problem...cold winter had bait spread out due to temps...beginning of the end of the Pacific salmon in Lake Michigan- fish were tiny this year! Pacific salmon experiment  crash in Lake Huron has finally cccomeull circle?)...we are still seeing a few salmon creep in and will probably see more since the whole year's timing is totally messed up from the global warming sub zero winter and 99% Great Lakes freeze-up...(remember summer Skamania steelhead were a month or more late at least!)

STEELHEAD REPORT

Best is yet to come. The few that are coming in are being 'egg bombarded to death...by hook and hand....but they will still take a fly on the swing or dead drifted Indy fishing. Since everything is late, I expect December and the warm weather will be a huge push and peak of fall run. My "chicken and egg' swinging rig up from 'Selectivity book' is an absolute killer when so many chummed eggs are being forced down the Pavlovian dogs throats. Remember.. chumming is legal in Michigan and the people who do have the right to do so!,,,so dont bother bitching about it fly guys...is what it is ! ..that's about as diplomatic as I can be....if you and your guide or buds want to do it?...God bless!...free country! So don't pull your hair out if you drift the whole day and don't hit a fish if you're a fly guy. Things will improve with greater numbers of fish in the system as fall/winter progresses.

Also, many use Trout Beads@....but I prefer Otter eggs- they are soft and translucent and the steelhead dont spit them as quick as the opaque and rock hard beads- IMHO

TROUT UPDATE
 This has been one of the best trout years since it was a cold summer and the hatches are still going strong. With the warm fall, the # 22-24 Blue-winged olives ( pseudos are still peaking!)...and due to the lack of salmon and eggs in the river, the trout are poking their noses up ...for dry fly fanatics like me , it has been awesome. Also caddis hatches are still strong on sunny afternoons /evenings


LANDLOCKED ATLANTIC SALMON AND LAKE-RUN BROWNS

 Again, these fish are just thinking it about and starting up. The runs will last well into December coupled with a warm fall. The new Au Sable fishery is waiting for results....Torch Lake had a massive run last year....we are hoping for good things to come!!!!
