  1. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    For the past couple of years I’ve been monitoring the formation of a couple of beaver ponds in an area I frequently chase grouse. The beavers have been active there for a few years and the ponds are only, say, 2-4 years old. The dams are near the headwaters of an unmentionable here in the north...

    http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,4570,7-153-10364-448127--,00.html And this link is the Map(s) and descriptions. http://www.michigan.gov/documents/dnr/Upper_Penninsula_10-bag_brook_trout_streams_Sep_25_2017_601768_7.pdf I should note here that the changes have been made only on 33 sections of...
  3. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    Sorry. My camera is being repaired, there will be no pictures. (I know. Loud boos can be heard.) I'll try and keep this short and sweet. We spent a few days chasing trout in the UP. Our first spot was a Type A lake stocked with Brookies. The lake maps indicate that it's around 35 feet deep...
  4. Upper Peninsula Michigan Streams and Rivers
    If your Internet connection is a bit spotty, or you're trying to save on bandwidth or data, now would be the time to close this report because there are a ton of pictures about to load... My buddy @Big Medicine and I spent the 18th through the 22nd chasing Brookies in the UP. We were on our...
  5. North West Michigan Streams and Rivers
    This thread is intended for those who are new to trout fishing and need help with identifying fish. I think that most, if not many who read these forums are able to identify the trout that they catch. But, there are some who may be new to trout fishing and don’t have a mentor with them...
  6. North West Michigan Streams and Rivers
    A friend of mine called me up to let me know that several inches of rain had fallen recently in his neck of the woods. The importance of this news was clear. I needed to get over there and fish. Get while the gettin’ is good. The creeks that we like to fish are normally prohibitively low come...

While the dam removal...
  8. Out of State Fishing
    I'm headed in may to a lake that is full of brookies. We mostly will be trolling and casting spinning rods. I asked the owner what to bring and he said for trolling to bring a flasher to which you trail 12" of line with a #6 hook with half a crawler. Any other advice or secrets for trolling...
  9. North West Michigan Streams and Rivers
    Fished the Jordan this weekend and didn’t have much luck. Fished three different spots. Fished right at Alba road drop in, right where Webster road crosses the river, and right where Old state rd crosses. Managed to catch a couple very small brown trout but that was it. These areas were also...
  10. Out of State Fishing
    In July, I went backpacking and fishing in the Wind River Range of Wyoming. I started at the Scab Creek Trailhead and I hiked around 15 miles into Bonneville Basin. I had great fishing for Brookies and rainbows in the winds with great scenery. The brookies were caught on gold panther martin...
  11. North West Michigan Streams and Rivers
    I know that we aren't allowed to talk about spots in particular, but was just wondering if anyone has been having any luck on Bear Creek lately. I have never fished there before, won't be going until the afternoon (damn third shift schedule), but want to go explore. I have a bunch of spots...
