It is that time of the year again. Time for the steelhead and Loopers to make the spring run up the North Shore trout streams. I look forward to this every year. Last year we had a very good run of steelhead along with loopers. So far this year with the early spring, the streams are a little on the low side with the water fairly clear. We need some rain to push the rainbows into the streams from the big lake.
My brother Ed, and his friend Joel, were up the shore yesterday to try the rivers flowing into Lake Superior. Fishing was very slow with very few fish in the rivers. They did see a few fish but no takers. So I’ll be putting update’s on here from time to time for those interested in going up to the North Shore to try their luck. My guess is that more fish will move in the rivers after some rain that is moving in that area today through tomorrow. This is just the beginning of the spring run. Fish will be spawning well into May, so there will be time to fish for those who can’t go as often as they wish.
On his way back from Florida a few days ago Ed stopped by the Menomonie River in Eastern Wisconsin to try for some steelhead. He did get this one and a couple of others. Now for some on the North Shore.
