July trip to the cabin
« on: Jul 30, 2020, 03:02 PM »
Just got back from four days at my cabin in Michigan. Amazing how much better the fishing was this trip than the June trip. Fished two small creeks and the Big Manistee River and caught trout on all three. The temperature(80s&90s) was pretty high every day but the streams are spring fed and ice cold so dipping your hat cooled you off really nice! The fish were keying on hoppers, and about destroyed my hopper fly by the end of the trip. Here's a couple pictures. Was really nice to finally do some good fishing! Hex

Nice browns!! If you only had a couple days to small stream fish would you pick the Sauble or Little Manistee around the Big Bass Lake area?  Near Natahka.

Thanks Guys! I've never fished the Sauble before so would probably go with the little man! Hex

Ya the right out of the water pictures are always the best. Here's a couple picture of a brown from the little man a few years back. One of the prettiest browns I've ever caught! Hex

Glad you had a good trip Hex.
I had a trailer on North Bayou on Hamlin Lake 1969-1972. Tons of fun!!!

Wow!

I may not be raising trout after this year. Summers keep getting warmer and warmer and it's taken it's toll this year. Water temp got too warm and some external parasites went crazy. Got on their gills and they were having trouble breathing. I've lost about 25 fish so far with some browns up to 8 pounds. Treating the pond now with formalin and things may be getting better.

I don't want to put in a bigger well pump as I won't want to run my neighbor's wells dry. I could raise them indoors in pole building in a recirculating system using much much less water, but not sure if I want to build as I'm not sure what's going to happen with the economy and the virus. No sales lately as the virus has shut down taxidermy shows and shipping is iffy for frozen fish regular ground. And trout raised in tanks and raceways are usually not as nice as those raised in ponds. Fun times!

Sorry to hear about your fish problems, I know the high temps are brutal on salmonoids  in general! Some fishery guys predict the total loss of our stream Trout in North America if global temperatures keep rising. Sure hope we can turn things around! Hex
