Pere Marquette fishing report -Sept 20th

After the rain we received on Monday the Pere Marquette jumped up quite a bit and picked up a nice stain. While there are gobs of salmon everywhere spawning and staging in the runs and holes, stripping streamers for browns was still good yesterday in the upper river. Mike was up from Chicago and stuck a beautiful brown on a small (2-3″) white rabbit strip streamer. A few aggressive salmon also crunched streamers and of course a few big nuke eggs. Pink seemed to be the most effective color.

Egging for browns was not good with only a few small fish to show for it despite finding and fishing to several larger browns behind spawning salmon. With rain in the forecast for the next few days the streamer fishing for browns should continue to be good.
