Fall Steelhead

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...

One day at a time

Steelhead fishing is day-to-day right now. Be in the right spot at the right time and you'll find your silver reward! Water flows have increased for some reason–Thank You Thank you!!! Rain is expected this evening and tomorrow, though we are not expecting more than...

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,...

God Bless LR Browns

Wow, apparently there were a bunch of folks with cabin fever today! Certainly the weather this week has been anything but ordinary–that said, I'll take some adversity to keep the traffic low!  Water levels stabilized today, though I'd guess their going to bump it from all the melting snow. Water temps...

Winter Wonderland & Chrome

The Edlemans are with us for the next several days–yes, the packed everything they own to stay warm. This crazy winter storm just doesn't want to let go anytime soon. If you can endure the conditions, our river is simply stunning with all the fluffy...

NC meets Winter Storm Pt. 2

Can't say the forecasters got it wrong this time! Snow, blowing snow, and bitter temperatures provided our less than ideal backdrop to our second day of steelhead fishing. In a normal January setting, we'd have waived the white flag, but with water temperatures providing us...
