Pere Marquette River Fishing Report- March 1st

There is no question that it’s still winter in west Michigan but with the ice sickles dripping a bit more each day, spring seems right around the corner.  The PM River is in great shape with water levels about perfect and just enough color.  As is the case each spring, water temps will remain cold until most of the snow has melted.

Steelhead reports from the river have been excellent.  Below are a few pictures from Steve’s float a few days ago.  They covered water quickly with streamers and while they didn’t move any steelhead they did get into several nice trout including the 22″ below.  Even though Steve didn’t get into any steelhead with streamers when he had his cammera, streamers are still producing steelhead.  This will likely end as soon as spring breaks and the steelhead hit the gravel, focusing their feeding interests to eggs and nymphs.
