Northern rivers in great shape for tout opener

   If the weather holds, things, including trout, should be looking up for the trout opener, the last Saturday in April.
   Rivers are said to be running clear and fish are responsive. So far bugs of choose have been BWO's, Hendickson's and some stones.
   With some rain like that expected this weekend, fishing should get even better. Once waters temperatures warm a bit, fish should be on the prowl for dry flies.
   Closer to home, temperatures are generally warmer than those around Frederic or Grayling, the areas the AuSable and Manistee systems run through.
   That means dry fly fishing should be well on the way be opening day. It may not be too early to get the poppers or small spiders out and try the action for gills on some of the inland lakes.
