Late Fall & Winter Is Just About Here And A Great Time To Fly Fish For Trophy Brown Trout & Steelhead!
Fall steelhead have just started on the lower Au Sable River. This run is a bit later in starting than many of the west side rivers and typically peaks in mid Nov thru Dec. Then comes comes true winter steelhead fishing in Jan/Feb and lower Au Sable River is an excellent place with all of its slow deep pools for deep water nymph fishing. The late fall and winter months are a great time for anglers looking to fly fish in solitude as lower river typically has very light fishing and boat pressure. This same time is also an excellent time to streamer fish for big brown trout on the Au Sable River. For big trout we are fishing the Big Waters of Au Sable Below Mio and Alcona dam along with some of larger sections of the main stream from McMaster Bridge to Mio Pond. We also offer wade trips on the South Branch and North Branch of the Au Sable River in the late fall and winter months. For those that don't mind hiking a bit these can be very productive and great way to improve your winter trout fishing. For those that like to cast in open water the late fall and early winter can provide some awesome streamer fishing for big Lake Trout and Browns on the shoreline of Lake Huron. Typically lake will stay open till late Dec and some years into January.
This winter Streamside Custom Rod
& Guide Service will be offering guided float trips in Arkansas on
the White River. In our continued year round pursuit of big brown
trout this river has turned into our favorite for trophy size trout
in the winter months. Truly amazing at the number of brown trout
over 24” and February is the peak streamer time for these big trout!
I have setup accommodations for lodging at Wildcat Shoals Resort
I will be spending
February on the White River in Arkansas doing float trips this
winter. For those looking to come streamer fishing this is one
best rivers in the country for giant brown trout. We do have
space open and package deals are available with lodging and float
trips. Here are some of photos from the last few years:
