Shuffled

After the January thaw a nice bump in water flow has shuffled the deck on the Muskegon River. Quite a number of anglers were throughout the system yesterday hunting chrome. Icy 34 degree water made for a challenging bite in our boat, however RQ guide...

Winter Colors

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow yesterday–an early spring is on the way. According to Phil, six more weeks of gray skies is what to expect. Fortunately for us, we are able to chase our gray away and marvel at the vibrant hues of...

Dog & Pony

The first fly fishing show of the season is behind us. It was great to catch up with old friends and new in Somerset NJ. True to form, the crowds came and busy days were had talking to industry folks and meeting perspective clients. Our...

Consider it Shuffled

Heavy rain and snow melt combined to give a pretty major high water event on the Muskegon River the past couple of days. River flows reached about 5300cfs and have now begun to fall. Currently we are right around 3700cfs and just about back to...
