Where’s Winter

Where’s winter? That’s the question many of us here in western Michigan are asking. As of this writing on January 7, we have no snow—zip!  Perhaps a few folks want to chase away the sunshine and above normal temperatures, but actually, we’ll take it since,...

Birthday Present

I spent a good part of my birthday with my favorite two-handed rod looking for a nice winter steelhead on the swing. I honestly wasn’t going to be disappointed if I wasn’t successful, it was just a great day to be out. Thankfully the river...

Feeling like winter

Ol’man winter was knocking pretty hard on the river today. No, it’s not the first snowy cold day, but with an afternoon high of 28 degrees and a windchill well less, it was definitely feeling like winter. The river remains around 45 degrees and our steelhead...

Fall Steelhead Fly Fishing

Well rewarded

Bright sunny skies and ultra clear water make for a pretty day on the river, but tough swinging for fall steelhead. Every fish that have graced our nets recently have been well earned and truly a reward. Pictured is Dave with a truly awesome fall steelhead...

Well earned

Bright skies and clear water make for challenging conditions for steelhead fishing. As was the case today, opportunities were tough to come by. Right place, right time, and a little bit of luck goes a long ways. Pictured is Marty with a fantastic fall steelhead taken...
