Another spring is here. After missing out on the last few
years of Northern Michigan's outdoors, I have decided to
make the time to get out and enjoy it again. I completed my
first official weekend outing last weekend and plan to have
at least one of these weekends a month.
Well I didn't have quite the luck I'd hoped for. As
you can see I have no pictures of big steelhead yet
this week. I took the boys and spent a couple hours
at the mouth of the Pigeon with not even a bite.
There were a couple guys fishing there who said that
2 steelhead were caught right there last week.
I also hear that other rivers are starting to produce.
I think the water is just a little cold yet and action
should start picking up soon. I will definately try again next
The pictures you do see here are about a mile upstream from
the mouth of the Pigeon. While we didn't have any luck here either,
it was a beatiful day, and we had a lot of fun. It is
very relaxing just to be in places like this.
Be sure to check out your 2000 Michigan fishing guide.
There have been some significant changes to trout and
salmon fishing regulations on inland waterways. As a result
of these changes, there is an additional publication
available. It is called "Inland Trout and Salmon Guide 2000,"
and includes color coded maps that will allow you to find
regulations pertaining to a specific lake or stream by finding
it on the map.
