Pere Marquette River Report

June 8, 2021

Things are really heating up…literally. The bugs are sporadic but there is quite the variety. We have yellow sallies, sulphers, salmon flies, drakes and the big yellow bugs. This is the time of year to be here. We are experiencing some fantastic fishing and getting some big ones to play. Full disclosure…the after dark dry fly fishing is not easy. You better bring your A-game and take a nap. The fishing is late and tricky. You want to make life easier? Try mousing. The big fish key up on waked flies and they hammer them.


If all of this seems like too much information…then educate yourself…attend one of our schools. We have weekend long schools that break down the learning curve. This is a great way to meet new people, have a great time. Lodging, guide trip, walk and wade.

Come on up and enjoy the best trout fishing of the year. We have some of the best trout fishing this side of the Mississippi. Hope to see you on the water. Give everyone a break, keep the lights to a minimum and make sure to let your presence be known and give each other some space.






Hope to see you soon!
