Hi All

It's Salmon season and the fish are here in great numbers. Some are starting to hit the gravel beds and there are still holes holding large #'s of green ones staging up. We have been getting a small amount of rain. The river is still low a clear but has a little more volume. In other words it's very wadeable still and there are just a couple inches more water between the bottom of my drift boat and the rocks/ logs I've been scraping. Some fish are spawning out and few dead ones here and there. Some new ones coming in. Now we are just getting a rotation of fish like that for a while. Lots of big fish this season. Biggest so far for me was with Dave who landed a 25 lb. King on a streamer behind a egg and I've had 4 others 22 lb to 24 lb range. I haven't had a jack Salmon even on a line yet this season. These are the biggest Salmon I've seen since about 1992-94 back in the day. Smallest we've landed has been in the 10 lb range. I have been seeing a few jacks showing up around the gravels being a nuisance to the big males. That's what those jacks do best.

A Huge Thank You to everyone who has stayed with us and been doing guided trips with us for the past 3-4 weeks during the early portion of the Salmon season. Peak season is here for the next 3 weeks. People are here from around the world to enjoy our world class fishery right here in some of our back yards literally or only a few hours from our homes. Please be kind to everyone and enjoy yourselves on the Pere Marquette River..
