Fall Steelhead

Waiting?

After yesterday's great fishing, I was anxious to be back on the water today. As it goes with swinging flies for steelhead, no two days are ever going to be the same. Ideal conditions on the Muskegon remain— The ball is definitely in the steelhead's...

Holding my Breathe

River conditions are near perfect–the Muskegon is right around 2900cfs and 45 degrees. Have the stars finally aligned? Well, time will soon tell, but right now it looks pretty darn good! The way this fall has gone I'm kinda scared to hold my breathe, but...

Here’s to hoping!

Some major weather has impacted the region the past few days. Rain fall has given a nice boost to our water flows on the Muskegon River over the past two days–hopefully, this recent boost of water will finally ease our trying conditions. Two-handed swung fly...
