Yeah I have been doing a little bit of fishing here and there.

On average I am hooking 1 steelhead per day for the most part, with some days a few more. I have landed a fair amount so far this year. All from my local tributary that gets a decent run, but nothing spectacular. This fall was better than last year due to good amounts of precipitation and decently mild fall. Winter has set in over here, but there are fish in the system due to the rain we got less than a week ago. Should keep good stable flows and water color all winter since the ground is frozen now. I predict a good winter run and Michigan's streams should fish well. Lets just hope the fish continue to trickle in.

I usually fish eggs/nymphs under an indicator with shot with a longer single hand rod or swtich rod. Best technique for steelhead in the wood and many hookups. I haven't brought the 12'6" 6wt spey rod out yet, it will be out this winter for sure.

I will post pictures later.
