I was thinking about wetting a line in the river myself this weekend. Is there much open water?

I posted this on the harbor but I meant to post it here...There thurday for about 3 hours. Started at the dam with flies and then i drifted Spawn… Not a thing, didn't see anything either. Went below the Steelhead Facility… the first "pool" below the fish refuge is mostly unsafe ice but there was a open channel and then below that the edges of the river are iced and that ice i could stand on, and there like ice or a mix of dirt and ice on the bottom of the river so watch your footing if you go. As for the fishing I saw one zombie king salmon ( couldn't get him to bite). After I tired alot of my flies and then it got to the point that the line was sticking in my reel, Then i drifted spawn with NO bites… maybe in the spring.

Went Monday before river iced up. Fish were all up down the river both in deep holes and fast water. Most of the big browns were laying in the deeper holes but would only take small flies. Smaller browns were in faster water no steelhead were seen. I fished Lincoln Park from the walk bridge to the signs by the weir. Small stone flies or small red flies worked the best. I lost 2 20 lb. plus browns due to light leaders. Caught 1 8 pound brown on dry fly fishing for steelhead. Also caught 1 near death Coho and saw 1 zombie king. Sad

Really guys, how hard is it to go up to the river and walk and find spots?? Or just look back on pages on here to find information. The root is pretty easy to figure out. Yeah sometimes you'll drive up and get skunked but that's how it goes. To many guys on here expecting people to just give out exactly where, when and how to fish. When it comes to the rivers, and lake michigan in general, no amount of information any one hands you can make up for time on the water
