Hawkins Outfitters reports

Jon Ray (Hawkins Outfitters) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: The past 5 days since Tuesday (1/26) temps have been in the middle to low teens. Water conditions have gotten cold with some slush flowing. But the positive is that weather is going to break. Previous to the cold conditions fishing was top notch for January. I would expect fishing to pick up where it left off this coming week. With cold water conditions I like to give the fish bigger than normal flies, make them commit to a your offering. Big hex nymphs, big stones, and larger than normal eggs are go to patterns this time of year. (01/30/10)
Jon Ray (Hawkins Outfitters) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: It actually seems a little bit embarrassing that this is my first day out of 2010, but real life stuff, some traveling, and just simply really cold weather has kept me from the Big Manistee so far. It did feel so good just to be out, to see eagles at play, geese and golden eyes flying around, and of course my silver friends still eager to take a fly. Had a chance today to play around with a new demo Helios Spey Rod and I have to say I was very impressed. Did only have a big pike that did not come to hand take a streamer. But Ed McCoy and I found more than a handful of really feisty steelhead to play with using switch rods and floats. Actually had fish jumping today, I wouldn't of believed it, not with these temperature. But all in all a great day on the river. Today OC and green caddis did the best for us.

Looks like mother nature is going to be kind to us for the next 10 days, with most days hovering around the freezing temp. Look for fish to find places to warm up, if the sun comes with these warmer days. I love gentle tail outs in mid-winter. You have to be very stealthy and make sure to use smaller flies, but it's amazing how shallow fish will actually move into to warm up on sunny days.

Tight Lines,
