Spent 3 1/2 days recently on the AuSable. Fished the North Branch on this past Thursday afternoon with low success - 3 small brook trout. Then on Friday spent the afternoon on the South Branch again with low success - another 3 small brown and brook trout. Friday night, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning down at the Trophy Waters stretch below Mio. At Comins Flats, it was a happening. Caught a total of 30 Rainbows, Browns and Brookies on this stretch. Saw lots of bug hatches - Hendricksons, Caddis and Sulphurs during my time in the Grayling / Mio area. Green and yellow soft hackle was the fly of choice while fishing on the Trophy Waters.

That's some nice country up there. I had a chance to fish there about three years ago during this same time. Sounds like you had better luck than we did down around Mio. The water was covered with Hendricksons for us but not one decent fish was eating. The South branch was my favorite area.
