MISSY THE SPEY QUEEN "TORE THEM UP' AS THE RUN WAS JUST GETTING REAL HOT!...........THEN THE FLOOD AND BUILDING THE ARK!


YES SAD BUT TRUE!.........THE RUN WAS JUST EXPLODING FOR THE PAST 6 DAYS, AND THAT DAMN GLOBAL WARMING THREW A FLOOD AT US!. After being in what Peter Basta called' the  "" Artic Shield"........the new global warming term for all the Artic air is parked over the 45th parallel- and it is warm up in the artic??? ( true!- I've been in some kind of snow/sleet storm every day in April on the river), the steelhead run was just starting according to my estimate, and "BHAMM!!!- BUCKETS OF RAIN THAT DIDN'T STOP!
( dock 4 feet under water and river flowing thru our lower property!)

 We hit 9,000 cfs this morning- the worst flooding I've seen in the 21 years since I've been in Michigan on the Muskegon.Our entire lower property is under water. But good news is the water has crested and is receding- should be fishable by next week with excellent numbers of steelhead coming in on this big dam blow!
Here is Missy with some nice fish during the monsoon.
As trout season opens this weekend, all rivers in the state are flooded and a ton of big browns WON'T be strung up on stringers by the worm dunkers.........YAHOOO!
