Thumbs up Great Lakes Summer Skamania Outing!

Well if anyone is interested, lets try to get an outting together for skamania steelhead this summer. It can take place on one of the rivers or possibly in the surf? We need to get a good amount of people from this site to come, and anyone would be welcome, even if you aren't from this region. I was thinking sometime in July! How about it?

Dan,

It will depend on the selected date for me but I will be up there in July searching for the skams for sure.

Let me know the target dates.

"Hate yous guys to peaces" :>)

I'll be chasing 4-6 pounders, you'll be chasing 1--15 pounders.


Life at this time on the Rogue (sans spring kings) is not good.

Fred,

Clarification its more like we will be chasing 10 - 20 lbers, some over 20. Record is 27lbs I think right now.

A mean steelhead on steriods. Starting my extra arm strength training now for these guys.

I'll be in Michigan for a Wedding in August...the 16th I think. If it happens around this date, I'd love to try my first outing for something that doesn't live in the Salt!

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.

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!

Thumbs up details!

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!

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!

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.
