Betsie River 9/23
« on: September 26, 2017, 09:25:11 AM »

Spent the weekend fishing the Betsie River.  As there were a ton of people pretty much everywhere we went to a more secluded spot around crystal mountain.  We saw one person.  Rumors were that the numbers were coming down as the run was coming to an end.  Once we reached the stretch we planned to fish we saw them stacked around a bend.  Probably 50 fish.  It made it hard to actually cross the river and start fishing without spooking them.  Most were spawning and wanted nothing to do with lures but I did manage 4 pretty good kings.  Saw one coho come through and what was either the biggest rainbow I have ever seen or a steelhead come through as well.  Great weekend on the river.  I was using spinners and we had a couple hits on eggs as well.  Still plenty of fish and the "end of the run" is still more fish up there than I have ever seen in the Grand in Lyons.

Sorry for the long delay.  Most fish are around 25 pounds.  There were some smaller and some bigger.  I lost one that I couldn't move with 40 pound braid.
