As the great steelhead fishing tapered off, 14-inch to 18+inch bass became the norm through the end of May and most of June.


Spring Steel

Relatively low water made for great spring steelhead fishing from March through May, here are the highlights.
Red Stripe

One for the table

Absolutely perfect swung fly fish -  tight swing, huge tug and lots of reel music.

Sunrise on the Betsie

The Rouge
Feenstra's BTS

Lost a great fish when the rear hook bent out...oh well.


Cold Winter

With cold temps and mostly frozen rivers, I spent most of my outside time fat biking around Lowell. I did one overnight trip near the Pere Marquette.
