Default Winter Steelhead action still hot!!!

A fantastic day to be outdoors, if you live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Fly fishing today was something most fishermen dream about! I only had 3 hours of fishing today but it was worth every minute. I literally almost spent as much time fighting fish as I did fishing! I went 5 for 6 catching 3 Steelhead and 2 Lake Run Brown Trout. The Steelhead were 6+, 4 and 2 pounds. The Brown Trout were 4 and 8+ pounds! It took me well over 20 minutes to wrangle the bigger Brown. All 5 fish were fooled by the same large Clown Egg pattern.

William, North is nice, but; look a little to the East for some close Steelhead action.
