Great Rivers

With high water this week ,we should see even more fish push up are rivers. Western streams seem to have more fish spread threw out they're systems than the far Eastern tribs. There are no lack of big fish around this season with solid 10s and larger being common. With high off color water spawn ,big jigs as well as large flies are working best. The guys making the adjustments for high water are reporting the best fishing we have seen in years.With mild temps the next few days ,the bite should stay very good.
Night walleye is still going strong with reports coming in from Huron, Vermilion and Cleveland all reporting good fishing. The best baits have remained the same all year. Husky Jerks are the best bet from shore with F-18s being the bait of choice for boaters.
