What Adversity

Day two with Patti and Duane was perfect for streamers; rising water, slight stain, steady barometric pressure, minus the wind. The wind made things rather challenging today despite the near perfect water conditions. The heavy rain from yesterday brought the river up significantly and added...

That’s how she rolls

Patti Beasley, fly fishing club president of Reel Women & Reel Men, Indianapolis Indiana, along with Duane Riddle joined me today for a very wet, but awesome day of streamer fishing on the Muskegon River. Dark skies, bigĀ  rain, and muddy run-off always seems to bring...

We’ll take it

Dr. Tom Lambert and his father Tom joined me today. The rain from yesterday has brought the river up a few inches but the overall, the river is still a bit low and very clear. Streamer fishing was slow this morning but this afternoon the...

Prime for trout

Trout fishing is now the full-time game on the Muskegon River. While a few new and old steelhead remain, the river is prime for trout. Hatches are rolling but have taken a little pause in the cool rain today. Bwo's, cinn caddis, and a few...

For their final time this spring, the Dan Bowen group joined Captains Dave, Don, and myself for a late season steelhead trip. With the previous trips this spring playing out fairly tough, today's trip by comparison was a home run. With the numbers of fish...

A Trio of Fun

Dr. Shen, David Goedde, and Ray Davis wrapped up their trip yesterday with a tougher trout bite than the prior day astream. The trout seemed full, likely from the large amounts of food swept into the river from the rising waters. Oddly, the smallies were...

Vince’s “A” game

Finally some much needed rain hit the watershed overnight. Excellent streamer conditions are now present on the Mo' as flows have increased, and with it came stained water. This increase in flow will also shoot whats left of our steelhead run up stream. While the...

Memories can haunt

The last day of April felt like we should have been closing out the month of May or June with high temperatures in the low 80's. Trout fishing today was very good from a hook-up/chase aspect; it wasn't until the 4th big brown through the...

Just a glimpse

Joining me today was long-time guest Tim Hicswa and Al Aevey. We started out the morning chasing steelhead, Al and Tim both finding some quick success. As the sun angle rose we transitioned to streamers and the quest for trout. Tim was rewarded a glimpse...
