Spring Steelhead

Better

Dreary skies = happy steelhead. Pretty much says it all. I sure love being on the river on days like yesterday, but boy oh boy, the steelhead sure didn't! Thankfully our dark dreary day today made it much better! Pictured is Gavin with his first steelhead. Capt....

Almost Perfect

Falling water, clearing, and beautiful sunny skies—nearly perfect! Despite our backdrop being spot on, the steelhead didn't get the memo today. Truly this is why every steelhead you catch should be cherished. Pictured is Dr. Thompson with one one a a few well earned steelhead today. Capt....

Fish or Eat?

The spring steelhead run on the Muskegon River continues to build. Fish are holding in dark water, though some are now scouting spawning areas. Long time customers, retired detective Terry and nearly retired attorney Pat, worked the water full bore all day—even to the point of...

Work

20 years of trips to the Muskegon and no two really alike. As I fished with Richard today we reminisced about all the different experiences 20 years of spring steelhead adventures could bring. Most memorable stories feature weather related issues or perhaps that one special...

Newly Addicted!

Avid hunter and "Panther Marten" fished-upstream-for-trout guy, Mike, has landed steelhead on Big Blue but has never fished them in a river. Today, though, on the Muskegon River, his first steelhead pill was a powerful fish that shot downstream, only to have the hook pull...

Improved

Sigh of relief! A much improved morning bite brought smiles to both Jamie and Bill. Happy clients = happy guide! Pictured is Jamie with the best birthday present a steelhead fisherman could ask for! Happy birthday Jamie—great buck! Capt. Steven Kuieck...

Some Days

Some days you knock it out of the park and some days you're just happy with a base hit. Well, today was one of the latter—not sure exactly whether the fish were in a funk or we just didn't hold up our end of the...

Making it count

The trip home was calling and a short day on the water was all that time would allow. Making it count with the time you have didn't phase Amy as she took to day two in stride. The results speak for themselves, pictured is Amy...

Ladies Day

Most ladies would have rather spent a cold rainy Saturday at the mall—not these ladies! Yes, the weather wasn't the most pleasant, but these ladies never batted an eyelash and the results speak for themselves. Pictured above is Amy with a beauty and her mom...
