Just got back from trout fishing the UP. Of michigan.. Just wondering how many of you guys get up there fishing every year? This yr I fished the ontanogan river with very little luck. I nvr manage to catch anything on subsurface nymphs up there. Possibly because the water is so stained in all the rivers I fish? Or maybe I'm just using the wrong flies. Saw some awesome giant stone flies fluttering around. One of those would be a meal for the little brookies I caught.
U.P. trout fisherman?
Just returned from another trout fishing trip to my beloved UP of Michigan. Had good success this yr fishing 4 brookies in many small streams I fished growing up in this part of the country. So sad to see the swarms of giant off road vehicles tearing up the trails everywhere I went. Areas I fished as a kid where I felt like I was off in the remotest wilderness , now all I hear is these annoying 4 seater monster's tearing down the logging roads and trails everywhere I went. Totally spoils the experience 4 me.
