Now’s the time for the hex hatch. It is really the big show here in the northland. Warm steamy nights are the time to be out. If it’s a little cloudy, even better. The hex hatch starts generally just as it’s getting dark and goes on through the night. This is exciting fishing and the river at night is an experience that should be tried.
Warm water fishing has been very good lately. The bass are taking poppers like candy. Smallies seem to be most active during the day and don’t miss the action after dark for largemouth. Musky fishing is also at its prime right now. Large flies that move a lot of water will reliably move these monstrous preditors – as mush as you can expect to move muskies that is.
