Twelve fish habitat conservation projects in streams and lakes across the state will share close to $1.8 million in Fisheries Habitat Grants administered by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
In a perfect world, every lake is full of biting fish and hosts a nicely pitched boat ramp with nobody waiting in line. But we all know perfect is just a fantasy. With more boats on the water and an increasing knowledge base among anglers, lakes are often crowded and the fish less than willing. Now, more than ever, you need a secret honey hole.
Anglers seeking panfish and trout will find the new Daiwa QC750 is a good fit. Perfect for ice fishing, too, the QC750 offers anglers a dependable small reel on a budget.

Pictured here are some of the antique fly lures purchased by collectors at the Niles Riverfest.
The items were discovered in the tackle box of a deceased world fly fishing traveler and taken to the Riverfest by the anglers friend for Bucha and Ladonski to identify and appraise.
