Guiding me today with the very latest steelhead news and notes was Captain Don Graham, who graciously spread the love among his fellow RiverQuest guides.  As is so often the case, his suggestions were spot on, and my guys, Mark and Dave, reaped the benefits. ...

Lots of steelhead in the river, and Mary and husband Jim got to know a bunch of them today.  Flow continues high but began to slow drop and clear in the afternoon.  Best flies today were clown eggs, sparkle stones, and buggers.  Mary is one...

With water temps moving ever higher with the high eighties heat bath in which we find ourselves, the steelhead are on gravel doing their thing. Dan brought his son-in-law, Brian, for some good old fashioned male bonding, and the steelhead cemented the deal. With stone...

As Jay's post on the 8th attested, the Muskegon River is running high and off color.  My youngest son Ryan and his ex-Marine bud Ken joined me for a day of steelhead fishing on the MO.  Fishing was challenging due the high flow and dark...

So good to be back on the river with fellow guide and best bud, Captain Don Graham.  Don enjoys a well earned reputation for efficiency and effectiveness as a guide and fisherman, but on this day, he took it to a new level: literally, his...

Uncle and nephew pair in my boat today; Pat brought his nephew Mark for a day of steelhead fly fishing. Mark had his chance—actually two of them on the same drift. Chrome on; chrome off.  Strip in—wham! Another one.  He's on—he's off! Mark continued undaunted,...

Gorgeous day on the river:  sunshine, clear water, happy steelhead, and, again, some surprisingly fresh salmon, one of which, a male, which Jim is holding, barely had begun to grow his spawning chompers.  Jim and Ron learned first-hand how tough it can be to put...
