Salmon Run

It’s back to feeling like mid July on the Salmon River, blue bird skies and 80 plus degrees has almost stopped any migration of salmon the past 4 days.  The extended forecast is calling for some lower temps even some night time lows in the high 40’s.  It can’t get here soon enough.

Fall Salmon Run

Reports from the lake this summer have been incredible, charter captains are report easy limits most days. Looks like another great salmon run this year. Now is the time to book your fall dates if you haven’t already. Limited dates available.

Ausable Report

 

The West Branch of the Ausable has been fishing pretty good  recently.  Water flows are dropping to summer time lows, water temps are mid 50′s-60 still.  Tight line nymphing has been the most productive technique by far, getting down and dirty with nymphs has produced some incredible client days along with some quality fish.

Best patterns nymphing have been: Frenchie, Pat’s Rubber Leg Stone, Sexy Walts worm and a Rainbow Warrior in sizes 8 to 16.
