Early this week the cooler night temperatures of 49 F and heavy dew brought the river down to a comfortable 60-62 F. All day fishing was excellent. Monday nights powerful thunder storm added needed water to the streams but has created some mild silting of the rivers. Fly-fishermen will have to watch the sky for those hard to predict thunder storms born over Lake Michigan. They are impossible for the weatherman to predict.
Spotty, quick hit Storms are in the forecast for the next 3 days and lower air temperatures of 60 F and highs of 80 F will make the evening fishing right on the border of too hot. Morning fishing will be fine. August is upon us and we are right on the border of safe water temperatures, 68 F and under, for the trout. Spots of the Maple River feed by underground streams will stay good fishing as the underground streams keep the water temp right.
