Brian, I have not fished the holy waters, but I fished one of the branches of the ausable all summer and up until yesterday, I have good days, and witnessed some awesome hatches and spinner falls, and caught some nice fish. I caught some a couple of nice browns and brookies yesterday on streamers. I think the big thing is Im retired and go when I think the fishing is going to be good, as you know we had a very wet spring, and I think the fish were getting lots of food washed down to them, and wading was very tricky for most of the spring! I witnessed a brown drake hatch that was crazy, all day long no fish were rising, and then about 8:30 pm drakes started to hatch, and then there was a spinner fall all going on at the same time! And let me tell you the fish rising all around me was crazy! But these fish really hammered, and the right presentation means fish or no fish. I got lucky and got some fish, but I was so overwhelmed by the whole thing it was cool. So, with that said be patient try and pick your days, I know its hard to do and work and take care of family, my old ass was worn out from driving up and fishing till midnight and driving back home, but were lucky to have these resourses, think about it, you don't live to far from me, and in 2 and half hours you can fishing on a world class river!
