Crazy Day

Crazy day swinging flies on the Muskegon River today. I certainly won’t blame the odd demeanor of our steelhead today on them personally! When your living room suddenly reduces space by 50% it likely would cause you to behave a little oddly too! (See pic...

Success is earned

Swinging flies the last couple days has been anything but easy for my boat. Good numbers of steelhead are around, but finding player fish has been challenging. Persistence is key and success is definitely earned. A decent shot of rain is forecasted tomorrow and more “weather”...

Success on the swing

Don and Thad, part of the fall MRO group fished today with me. Swinging flies was new to the fellas, but they quickly became proficient. While Don had previously hooked and fought steelhead on his fly rod, none were ever brought to hand. Pictured is...

Quick start

Last day with the Danhausen group wrapped up today. Things got off to a quick start as the steelhead continued to be eager just as the day before. However by mid-morning the hunt for player fish was on. Unfortunately things stay pretty flat much of...

Yesterday David, Kim, and Bill were chasing Albacore in NC with steady temperatures in the middle 70's. Today the guys arrived in Michigan at the Muskegon River Lodge with steady temperatures in the low forties to swing flies for fall steelhead. That's a 30 degree...

Swings

It’s funny how things go swinging flies for steelhead. The past few days on the Muskegon River has lived up to the reputation of earned success in the world of steelhead. Today things started much better today with a couple quick fish, but quickly turned...

Very November

It was a raw November day on the Muskegon today swinging for fall steelhead. Like yesterday the fishing pressure remained high. By afternoon many folks felt the call of warm dry cabins leaving things much more manageable. Pictured is Sock with a fantastic buck steelhead...

Welcome to the club

The Muskegon River is finally receding to a more hospitable level though it certainly remains above normal for the time of year. Clarity is improving especially the further upstream you go toward the dam. Fishing is as you’d expect after a significant water event. Pictured is...
