Steelhead Streamer Report 12.17.11

The streamer bite continues to be strong in west MI as water temps hover around the 40 degree mark.  Big sculpins, marabou speys, and flashy flies all took fish this weekend.  Bonus brown and rainbow trout were also agressively taking swung flies.  Below are pictures of the best brown and steel from three days on the river.

  2. Nice work dude. I ended up with three grouse after flushing 16 or so. I posted pics on the blog.

    December is a great time to be outdoors in Michigan. Keep after 'em. And Happy Holidays.
