The Boardman River is really starting to heat up with bug activity and rising fish with all this nice weather we are having. I’m seeing a plethora of different bugs throughout the day and evening that fish love to gorge on like stoneflies, sulphurs, mahagonnies, BWO’s, and a few remaining Hendrickson spinners. With such a buffet line it is a great time of year to hunt down larger fish and bust them in their secret feeding lanes sippin snacks!
Looks like we have some rain in the forecast for the next four days which should get the steamer bite going again, but this time of year we live and die by the dry fly as do most trout so be prepared for whatever nature throws at us and stock up on twitch bugs and dries alike. We have plenty of prime time dates available so If you are looking to see some new water or are in the Traverse City area, give us a shout and get a day in the books.
