Fishing Report

Temperatures are on the incline with consistent warmer weather, and water levels are coming back down from the recent rains. Fishing in the morning is best, and will preserve the integrity of our trout population on Tippy. High water temps will kill trout. Fishing for them during the morning hours, or in the evening will help preserve the population. The hex is still on, but expect numbers to start dwindling over the next few weeks. Last night our guides reported that there were a lot of bugs for most Northern Michigan Rivers, but a quiet bite overall. We are hoping that will change for tonight’s hatch, and hope to have hungry trout! Starting looking at terrestrial. Looking forward, start thinking terrestrials. Also, it is projected to be an epic hopper year! End of July and August are prime dates for this hatch. Our first of the two Introduction to Fly Fishing Schools will be held July 16th-17th. The Cost is $550 per person, based on double occupancy. This includes lodging and meals. The school will consist of classroom time which includes hands on casting instruction, and a full day guided trip. Sign up, space is limited! 231-848-4191.

Our guides are available and our gear is ready to go, give us a call. Check out the fishing report at D Loop Outfitters, http//
