Fall Steelhead

Hard to beat a beautiful day on the river like we had today. Whether it was the glow of the late fall lighting, the kind company, or simply a relaxed pace–together they combined to make for a great Monday. Pictured is Joan with her first...

Teddy said it best

“Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them...

Right place Right time

River conditions on the Muskegon River remain ideal for fall steelhead fishing. Two-handed swung fly fly fishing tactics couldn't possibly be more favored under our current river conditions. One problem–for what ever reason our steelhead are in a strange state of flux. Perhaps its the...

Stimulating…

I had the pleasure of hosting Ben from New York City and Matt from Ann Arbor today.  Each year, the guys and four of their buddies fish Michigan steelhead this week for three days; they've plied the Manistee and Pere Marquette, and this year are...

Enough Wind Already!

Windy weather created very difficult conditions with the two-handers today. I'm really not sure many more leaves could have possibly fit in the river at any one given point. The good news is the winds are subsiding and a more reasonable day on the river is instore tomorrow,...

Welcome Wet Weather

Soaking rains have been falling throughout our watershed since last evening–we can finally stop our rain dances! We started the day with water flows around 1300cfs and finished with a steady climb to around 1800cfs, good things should be on the horizon! Though the weather...

Rewards Schedule?

There are no certanties when it come to steelhead fishing. Somedays you grind it out cast after cast with nothing to show for your efforts and other days you stike gold thoughout the day. This year putting your time has been the name of the...

From Start to Finish

Not the easiest conditions for the two-hander–high skies and ultra clear water are testing the patience of even the most seasoned steelhead fishierman let alone someone embracing the swung fly for the first time! Patience and a great attitude are probably the most needed traits...

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...

Right where he left off

Joining us today were a group of guys we haven't fished with in a few years. Whether it was the economy, kids sports schedules, or life's unpredictableness 3 or 4 years have pasts since our last annual outing. As it goes with good anglers–it usually doesn't take long...
