Pere Marquette bonus fish fishing report

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Couple nice browns and a good steelhead over the past 10 days. And while it can be understandably hard to get excited about a big brown trout or a good steelhead when you’re hoisting 20lb salmon for grip and grins, wild browns and wild steelhead are special fish and we’re really lucky to have such a diversity of wild fish here on the Pere Marquette River.

Pere Marquette fishing report -Sept 20th

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

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.

I realize I did not post something yesterday. I would like to extend a sincere apology for this oversight. Though I would also like to point out that this happens to be the first time in 357 total post where a weekday was missed. And I’ve posted News Update Friday on a Saturday two times before by accident, therefore I’m technically still ahead in terms of total posts vis a vis total week days. Just sayin’. I’m not defensive. Not like it matters. Whatever. So there. Stuff that in your one hitter and smoke it. If you know what that means, cool. If you don’t, cool. Not that we endorse that sort of thing, it just sounds better than pipe for some reason.

Anyway, I was very lucky to spend yesterday on a special river. We fished hopper-droppers and I caught a brook trout, a rainbow and a brown. It was fantastic. That is all.
