pmflyfisher Rick,

St Joe is about a 4 hour drive from Detroit. It is very close to the south western border of Michigan where it intersects Indiana. Good interstates to take, either 94 or 80 each go over the St Joe. You could take either one which would put you within 15-20 miles of the good fishing. The fish go as far as the Twin Branch dam in South Bend.

I checked on the run status today at my local fly shop.

Skammie Outing

Count me out. Job ended rather unexpectedly. Would have been nice to have hooked up with some of you guys and seen what the Great Lakes have to offer, but I guess it was not meant to be. I'm out of here.

ah haaaaa....

We are walking the beaches one didn't think that I was just river fishing!?!

pmflyfisher Dansteelieman,

What no surfs up skamania in your outing plan ? Just the Joe and the Dog ?
06-13-2002 07:43 AM
Nick I'll have to get the low down on the area from you guys when I head there in August. Too bad the clave won't be then...but you can't win them all!

We will be going to the St. Joe, Dowagiac, or other streams within the general area. We are looking to keep the outing in the Southwestern area of Michigan since the runs are phenominal here.

We will be doing an all weekend thing as well. I am not sure about lodging and sleeping arrangments as of right now. The date isn't final yet either, but I am anticipating the 2nd or 3rd weekend of July.

Well, please let me know if anyone is interested!
06-12-2002 06:04 PM
Yes we are....

Whether it be fishing for skamania on 105deg summer days, or beating the winter blues by presenting spey flies in the winter months as snow falls and hoping just to hookup with one steelhead to get the adrenaline pumping!

I can't say it any better, I am an all year chromage hunter!

Fred, I know you fished with JD, can we expect a hard core steelheader because thats what we are out here.

Skammie outing

Count me in. Since I am a stranger in this part of the country I can use all the help I can get. This would be a great way to meet some of the local experts and compare notes. Keep in touch. The library is working on the webmail problem. Flytalk posts are doable, and when all else fails, I can go to Kinko's.
