Hey folks!  What a week!

Things are looking good up here in Boyne Country!  Hot days, warm nights, cold water...bugs are going and fish are too.

Sulphurs are definitely the name of the game right now in terms of amount of bugs.  Mahoganies and March Browns, the tail end of Hendricksons, along with the ever present caddis and stones help round out the mix .  The last few nights have had really solid emergences, so spinner falls should start any day now on most of our rivers.  The upper Manistee has had solid falls the last couple nights, so the northern tier rivers will follow soon.  Brown drakes are on deck, and with the warm weather we have seen a few.  We usually look between the 5-10th of June for the first flight, so we are right on schedule. 

Flats fishing at Waugoshance is still gaining steam, and it's looking like a fine season up at Wilderness.  If you've never had the opportunity to chase smallies and carp on the freshwater flats, join one of our guides for the experience.  You don't have to deal with the city scape and boats of Grand Traverse Bay, or the travel to Beaver Island, to experience some of the best freshwater flats fishing around. 

The weather is ridiculously better than this time last year, and the fishing shows it.  Don't hesitate to get up here to enjoy it before things before more people take notice.

We have guides available for everything right now - trout...smallies...carp.... so give us a call and get out on the water!

Cheers~
