Pere Marquette River Report

May 13, 2021

Well it looks like dry fly season is upon us.  The weather has finally come around.  The daytime temps are pushing 70 and night time temps in the 40’s and 50’s.  This should kick in the brown bugs.  March browns, Mahoganies, Caddis and a few sulphers have all been sporadically present.  Look for evening hatches to kick into gear within the next couple weeks.  Mousing is coughing up a few fish on the warmer nights.


If you haven’t had a chance to visit us during the gray drake hatch then you are definitely missing out.  We have one of the most prolific grey drake hatches in North America.  The weather is great, the fish are feeding, and the crowds are gone.  this is a great time of year to visit us.


We have trout schools scheduled all season long.  If you are new to the sport and want to take your game to the next level, this is the thing for you.  Be sure to stop by the shop and pick up some flies, our boxes are overflowing with bugs!







Hope to see you soon!
