Hook and Hunting: Chasing Michigan’s Chrome Torpedoes

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is offering a two-day clinic to learn ways to chase Michigan’s “chrome torpedoes.”

The Steelhead Clinic will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 19 and 8 a.m. to noon on Sunday, March 20 at the Carl T. Johnson Center in Cadillac.

It will also run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 2 and 8 a.m. to noon on Sunday, April 3 at the Tippy Dam in Manistee County.

The clinic offers students tips and tricks from the DNR’s Outdoor Skills Academy’s pro-staff.

“That’s designed for people to learn and have information so that they have the confidence to come back up and go fishing when we do get the good runs,” said Edward Shaw, a Park Interpreter for the Michigan DNR.

The cost for the clinic is $30. Equipment for steelheading will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
