Fall Salmon

“Welcome to Michigan”

When Kentucky residents Kimberly and husband Vincent accepted an invitation to a wedding in Zeeland, fly fishers that they are, they decided to turn their first visit to Michigan into a real getaway. First, fly fish for Chinook salmon and then stay a night at...

First Times…

For Mike and Eric of Indianpolis, today was all about first times—fly fishing, floating the Muskegon River, landing steelhead and Chinook salmon, and staying at the Muskegon River Lodge. Despite a torrential downpour, these two of five sons-in-law and their father-in-law, Rick, toughed it out...

Bamboo Shoots…

Satisfying, so satisfying it is when a trout rises to a fly one has tied oneself. Imagine, then, how pleased professor and bamboo rod maker, Bill, from Missouri, was when he brought a 16 lb. Chinook to the net on a bamboo rod he built...

All New

Introducing my nephew-in-law, Attila, and his good friend Soren to fall on the Muskegon River was my joy today.  The fall Chinook salmon run continues, though ebbing, and for the guys, witnessing the entire spectacle was all new: the process of spawning with the males...

Connecting with Longtime Friends

So good to host David and Rusty—David fresh from Manhatten and Rusty from Indianapolis—in my boat today. David and Rusty are part of a group of guys who have fished with us RiverQuest guides for years.  They travel to Michigan from all over the country...

Enough with the Boys…

After hearing countless stories from her husband Dan, brother's in-laws, and many friends, today was Sherri's turn for her first trip on the Muskegon. While our day was shortened by afternoon commitments in the corporate world, Sherri found success with this nice hen chinook. Her curiosity of the Muskegon...

Got Sunscreen?

While many people think this weather we've been having is totally awesome, I must say it IS NOT making fishing easy by any means. Sure 75 degree afternoons makes for a pretty great back drop on the river, but that's about it! Salmon fishing is progressing along...

Pure Michigan on the Muskegon River

For many, fall is the favorite season and for good reason, as today's fly fishing float trip with Bob Nykamp and his guest, Dr. Tory Seif, exemplified. Cloudy skies gave way to bright rays that bathed the river valley with reflections of gold and crimson....

A Fraternity of Anglers…

Special, special thanks and props to three guys who selflessly gave three fly fishermen from Missouri a three day introduction to Michigan's Muskegon River and its Chinook salmon fishery! Long time Schrems West Michigan Trout Unlimited member and bamboo rod maker, Ron Barch, along with...

Slow Improvement

Fall fishing continues slowly improve! Rain is on the way tomorrow and I'd assume noticeable improvement will follow as it has with each previous rain event. Our first steelhead of the season was boated by long-time guest Jeff Leininger today—while no monetary award was given,...
