Page 1 of 6 PMRL NEWSLETTER November 3rd, 2009 Beautiful Pere Marquette brown. Howdy folks, hope all is well with everyone. We had a great fall run of salmon this year and there are still some small balls arriving as we speak. Soon it will all be over and begin a new chapter on the famed river, STEELHEAD!! The Collegiate Steelhead tournament will begin this weekend; we are expecting a large turn out this year. Sign up at the Pere Marquette River Lodge on Saturday. For any additional information contact the fly shop or Jeff Burg at 586-531-7724. Deer rifle season will soon be upon us and the river will be a desolate body of water. If you want solitude and don’t hunt, this is the time to do it. The fishing is also typically very good. I always have a tough time during the fall, do I fish or do I hunt. Upland bird hunting has been pretty good with several ruffed grouse being pushed and a few falling to the might shotgun. Waterfowl hunting is always good, geese and ducks making their annual migration to the south. Don’t forget snowmobiling will begin too as well. Things are heating up around here even though the air temps are falling. Hope to see you up here for some fantastic activities. Page 2 of 6 FLY SHOP NEWS Nice lake run football to the net.

Browns are finishing there spawning ritual and will begin to feast aggressively. They will be very hungry and with the recent high water swinging or stripping streamers should produce. Steelhead have arrived and more filtering in, these torpedoes are here to do one thing, FEED! Steelhead are feasting on eggs, nymphs and streamers to pack on the pounds for the rest of the winter months. Now is a great time to battle one of these chrome rockets and put your skills to the ultimate test. Rods a jumping and reels screaming, fall steelhead will put a huge smile on anybody’s face even if you don’t land the brute. “Did you see that!” is the most common response we hear from clients as that silver bullet performs their acrobatic stunts several times and then disappears. If you are looking for a fantastic time on the river come on up and visit us. The weather is turning to the ugly side snow is falling as you receive this. So be safe out there, dress appropriately and take a kid fishing they are our future. Gabe and client with fall chrome, nice job! The Pere Marquette River Lodge is your one stop shop.
