Spring Steelhead

Great couple of days

The Kehl group has been with us for the past few days. The steelhead were very cooperative for the guys which made up for our continued poor weather. The Muskegon River bumped up a little today, but with generally (hopefully) dry weather forecasted we’ll see...

Persevere

This hen steelhead, fresh upriver from Lake Michigan, posing here with longtime friend and customer, Pat, brightened our fly fishing morning on Michigan’s Muskegon River today. Due to extraordinarily high river flows of late, now abated, fly fishing has been challenging since the bulk of...

Unseasonably Cold!

Unseasonably cold weather has been the theme since the end of last week. Fortunately for me I was able to stay south since last post to enjoy watching my sons soccer team play some games in Missouri. Back on the river today with a ridiculous...
