Pere Marquette Fishing Report- April 12th

Steelhead numbers on the PM River have been on the rise for the past week or more and I’m sure the biggest batch of the year is now on their way up. The only problem is that the PM is currently over its banks and looks like chocolate milk.

We’re expecting great fishing as the waters start to decline and clear. If you thought that you’d missed the boat on steelhead this spring, you still have time to get in on, what we think, will be the best fishing of the year.

Tips for dirty water would include: 1) Fishing the water that you know best and focusing on spots with great potential. Don’t spend a day scouting new water and fishing useless sandbars. 2) Make sure your on the bottom, if not, you’ll have no chance of hitting a steelhead. 3) Since the high water all of our fish have been on eggs that glow in the dark.

The last pic is of a massive white pine rolling its way down stream. You can’t see it but the limbs we’re flailing everywhere as the giant tree rolled along.
