Fall Steelhead

Red Cheeks

A 20 degree morning on the Muskegon River gave us some seriously red cheeks for the first few hours of our day. The water temperature is dropping and conditions are moving towards a more predictable normal. All-in-all it was a good day on the swing. Pictured...

40 degree swing

The crazy weather continues. 70 degrees Friday afternoon and 32 degrees and heavy snow showers Saturday afternoon! Simply crazy to have a 40 degree swing in 24 hours. Pictured is Dr. Whetzel with RQ guide Jay Allen with a nice steelhead off his two-hander before...

One of those days

Last day with the MRO crew—today was a memorable one for sure! Couldn't be happier for them! Now if the big bucks would just show my son and I a favor or two! Pictured is Scott with dime bright hen with RQ guide Dave this afternoon. Capt....

Congrats!

Low-clear water continues to test the tenacity of our clients. Covering plenty of water and making good use of every swing has been the ticket. Not a lot of words needed toward Rich and his truly awesome steelhead on his two-hander from today...

Cloudy—hallelujah

Boy, it was sure nice to have a full deck of clouds! Still had to earn our steelhead, but certainly looked more like November today! Pictured is Alan with his first steelhead with RQ guide Jay Allen. Capt. Steven Kuieck...

Thankful

As we said goodbye to our guests of the past few days and reflect on the memories of the trip, it's hard to be crabby about our successes or the tough hand we were dealt with some truly remarkable weather—four sunny days near 70 degrees...

Ditto

Another bluebird sunny day on the Muskegon River—a prime ingredient to a successful day of swinging flies for steelhead, LOL! Thankfully the steelhead didn't seem to mind today and a few very nice fish found their way in front of our cameras! Pictured is Mark...
