In Michigan, we are starting to see the sunshine longer. We are by no means out of the cold, but at least heading in the right direction. As the weather changes, the excitement starts to build. Soon Steelhead will be aggressively making their way out of the lakes into the many rivers to spawn. A fisherman’s delight – after a long drawn out winter finally days on the river and not just any days – days spent fighting an aggressive fish – Michigan Spring Steelhead.
This year I am beyond excited – after last year’s catch I am anticipating the fight again and just typing this starts story, my heart racing.
