Don’t have a river report for you today as I just got back in town. I took the wife someplace warmer for what was to be a short excursion before the season, but got stuck down there longer than expected due to the Titan storm blocking any good paths home. (I know, poor me, but it was good and bad believe it or not… :^) Anyway, it’s time to try and recover some of those unplanned expenses and get to work!
The weather is about to turn and the river already has plenty of fish! Dates have been filling in recently as they always do toward the start of the season, but we’ve still got plenty of great stuff open for both guides and motel rooms. My current openings are: March 11 thru 15, 17, 19 & 20, 23, 24 & 25 April 17, 19 & opens up quite a bit… Both John K and John R have openings as well, just call the shop to book or check on those dates! 1-231-745-3529
As John stated in his report…
“Currently there is lots of snow on the banks and in the woods. We will most defiantly have a few high water events this spring (nothing new), but being with a good guide during those times can be the best fishing of the entire season. The guide knows where the fish will be holding and you can safely fish out of our boats. As guides we love the high water, but as a walk-in angler it can ruin your day or weekend…just something to think about when planning your fishing trips. It is not a question of if it is going to happen;”
No truer words have been spoken so, treat yourself to a day on the water with us and we’ll promise you a comfortable quality experience!
The shop is stocked up and we are more than ready for the season! We hope you’ll stop in while you’re in the Baldwin area to pick up everything you need, or, of course, anything you might just want, but please excuse the look this weekend as we will be at the Midwest Fly Fishing Expo this weekend (Saturday & Sunday, March 8 & 9, 2014) along with plenty of fly tying materials, hooks, rods, reels, hats and lots of other goodies! Please stop by and say hello!
I will be hitting the river daily once we return from the show and will try to update my reports a few times a week, but at minimum once a week or if there’s a major conditions change. This early season should be awesome and I’ll be taking advantage of it with or without clients in the boat during those open days above.
I’ve got to get off here now and get busy, but on another note, if you’ve ever thought about a trip to Alaska with us or have gone and want to go again, this might be the year to do it. Check out the great deal below! …
