Question Alpena area of Michigan

This is my first post with the forum, and wondering if I may ask a question.

Are there any members up in the Alpena, Michigan area that could answer a couple of questions for a Georgia boy.

I will be up in your area next month and was wondering what fly selection to bring for a quick trip to the water.

Will be tight on time, but I have to put some bugs in the water.

Welcome to the site, Scott

The Au Sable is a bit south and west but the flies and sizes should be appropriate ---if you are driving---stop in at Gates and get some last minute stuff ---im sure they can fill you in about the fishing around Alpena

Heres a link to the emergence chart on the Au Sable

Hi LDR,

Welcome to the forum.

With a short time you may want to fish waters around Alpena. There are many lakes in the area and you might find some Smallmouth fishing. You could consider Thunder Bay River, the Black River or Gilchrist Creek. If you fish below Sucker Creek on the Thunder Bay you will find Smallmouth, walleyes and some Northern Pike.

You best bet is to contact a local fly shop with the latest information. You might consider buying the book: Trout Streams of Michigan by Bob Linsenman and Steve Nevala. This is a very good were-to book on Michigan. It gives access points, parking spots and even good places to eat.

I have not been to Alpena since the 1960's so you need to develop your own leads.

Frank
