Huron River Report – May 25, 2016

the-painted-trout-logoRed Fox fished the Huron River near Dexter last Wednesday. We started at The Painted Trout, to seek advice from Dirk Fischbach, owner of The Painted Trout. He pointed us to good water and gave us a handful of bugs to try.

The river flow was slightly higher than normal, but very wadable. The water was almost warm enough to comfortably wet wade, and the sunny 80 degree day made it very inviting. The river fished well. Smallmouths were hitting small black Woolly Buggers and Cone Head Muddler Minnows, retrieved with short strips. Most action was in mid stream, and near cover. Later in the evening there was a fair hatch of Light Cahills, that had a few fish looking up. Good times had by all.

Thanks, Dirk!
