Pere Marquette River          Water Conditions – above average, stained
>>> We got a lot of rain three days ago and the river is just coming down.  Big rubber leg stonefly nymphs produced in the fly water on the 28th and the streamer bite should be good for a few days.  The night mouse bite was excellent in the upper river before the rain and we’re heading out tonight to see how it has held up.  Matt Dunn

>>> Hex have been cropping up here and there with some good nights and some not so good.

Beaver Island >>> The weather on Beaver Island has been up and down, but average fish size continues to be several pounds over last year.  Combinations of yellow, orange and brown have been most productive.  Kevin Morlock
