Lower Peshtigo River reports

Tim Landwehr (tytlinez) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Fall fishing has begun on the Green bay and Lake Michigan Tributaries. King Salmon are in the rivers in large numbers. Though they do not come readily to a fly, these fish occasionally respond aggressively to large streamers. Chartreuse is a favorite color. Browns and Steelhead are beginning to filter in, particularly on the lake-side rivers. Look for fish to be holding in deeper runs and pools with good flow. Fish numbers in the bay-side tribs are not incredibly high at this point due simply to lack of rain. The next good rain will drive them in. Anglers fishing the harbors have reported good success. They are at the gate waiting for a bit more water. Lake-run fish will eat a variety of different flies. Streamer patterns work particularly well. They can be fished on a down-and-across swing, or stripped through likely holding water. Darker colors like black and purple are good stand-bys. Nymphing with stoneflies and eggs will also produce. One more fly that works extremely well for browns is a chartreuse and white or chartreuse and yellow Clouser. Strip this fly slowly across the bottom and be loosely prepared for a hard grab.
