Pere Marquette River Fishing Report- February 19th

This has certainly been a tough winter for most of us and with waist deep snow and many parts of the river froze solid, there was just no fishing on the Pere Marquette to report.

Thankfully, the past several days have warmed to almost spring like conditions and winter’s icy grip on the PM relaxed enough for folks to wet a line. As it should be the river rewarded those willing to swim through snow and drag boats over ice for some reasonably hot fishing.

Walt and another guide friend landed 3 out of 5 steelhead in about 4 hours of fishing and the best part, they were all on streamers. Of course they didn’t have a camera, so the shots below are from Walt and I hitting the river over a month ago.
