A bit of everything
The return of warmer weather has slowed the progression of fall on the Muskegon River. Pretty typical for this time of year really. Water temperature is fluctuating from the upper 60’s to about 70 degrees on the warmest afternoons. This weather pattern will hold through the early part of next week.
There are some migratory fish in the system, but they are relatively unhappy with the warm water. Smallmouth bass and trout remain the primary focus. Baitfish streamers and crayfish patterns continue to bring the smallies, while the trout are sipping caddis & bwo’s in areas on top and the typical fare nymphed below the surface. Basically, there’s a little bit of everything right now.
