River Reports

July 17

SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE!!!!  What a forecast?!  Hot weather, no rain, warm nights...things are good!

What does the cool down-warm up spells do for the hex?  It slows em down.  Even to the point where the Jordan is still well underway.  What does the hot weather over the next few days mean?  GET TO THE RIVER!  Monday had an unbelievable emergence off Lake Charlevoix in both East Jordan and Boyne City.  The last couple nights on the river have shown that we are definitely not done with Hex.  Intense emergences and spinner flights - not long - but the hot weather will help.

Where is the daytime game at?  Well...with the Hex still around, most of the larger fish are still nocturnal, however the warm weather will get the Brookies all head-over-heels in the headwaters.

Mousing has consistently started to produce extremely well, even with big bugs still in the air.  All of our rivers have produced some nice fish this year on fur-balls, so make sure you have a couple mice in your box if you head out at night.  The night game will continue to get better over the next few days as we head towards the dark side of the moon, so the end of July should be prime.

Carp are still cruising the areas around Waugoshance Point.  You may have to hunt a little bit to find em, but once you do, there are usually a few fish that are willing to play.

Guides are busy, but we still have some spots available if you would like one of 'em to take you out on an adventure!

Summer is here in BOYNE Country and we are lovin' it!  Get up and enjoy it!

Cheers~
