October 2013 Fall Fly Fishing Report

October 14, 2013 — Musky fishing just keeps getting better as the temperatures cool.  The leaves are mostly gone near the rivers and the weeds have released their hold and the rivers are in the best shape of the season.  Water flows in the rivers are above average for this time of year and we…

September 2013 Fishing Report

Fishing Report 9/15/13:  We’re changing hats here in the Northwoods.  It is time to take off the Smallmouth hat and put on the Musky hat.  For the last couple of months or so, we have had good, if not great, bass fishing.  Heavy rains and strange flows in the rivers have made for some challenging…

Fishing Report – November 21, 2012
