Captain Steven Kuieck, owner of RiverQuest Charters, has been guiding our home river the Muskegon since 1996. He has fished this river for over twenty years having his first success with Steelhead on a fly rod at the age of eight. In 2009 Steve along with fellow RiverQuest Charters guide Capt. Dave DeVries opened the Muskegon River Lodge – a beautifully scaped western log lodge located amongst some of the Muskegon River’s finest steelhead and dry fly water.
As a fly fishing guide, Steve is often asked how he handles the experience of watching others catch fish instead of fishing for the “big” one himself? His simple answer; “I feel great happiness watching others have success fishing with me. I enjoy watching someone catch their first fish as I do watching a seasoned fly fisherman land the fish of his life.”
Steve and his wife Lisa have a family of three boys; Masen, Zachery, and Brycen. They cherish their everyday experiences and look forward to their days both in the field and on the river.<
