Trout fishing has been good this past week as brown and brook trout continue to look up for the now sporadic Trico hatches in the mornings and terrestrials later in the day. This time of year I love to get out early with a light rod and have some fun with the brook trout.
Trout are responding well to foam and rubber on our local rivers. You might be surprised at how big you can actually go with some of these "chubby" style flies, even smaller fish will come up and slash at these. Slap them down and twitch them around grassy banks for some fun in the sun. Start early in the day if you can and get off the water before the heat really sets in.
Tricos continue to dominate the early mornings on our Northern Michigan rivers so be sure to have at the very least a few small parachute adams with you for when the fish get picky. Although the fish that will concentrate on Tricos are not always the largest, targeting selective rising fish is one of the most fun and rewarding thing this sport has to offer.
August is here and although we are past Northern Michigan's major hatches there is still some great trout fishing to enjoy before Salmon and Steelhead start to show up in our rivers. Early mornings are producing Tricos, small mayflies that can frustrate but will bring fish up for a surface eat.
