Spring Steelhead

Back in Business

Best fishing bud and fellow RiverQuest guide, Captain Don Graham, joined me for a shakedown cruise of my boat, which has endured sundry maladies this spring:  a worn out anchor winch (Thanks, Tracey, of Tracy's Custom River Boats for the new gear box and motor!)...

Traditions

Our spring steelhead season marks the time of year when we traditionally see some of our longest standing guests of our calendar year. The Radzis group is certainly one of those groups. In fact, this year marks our 20th spring season fishing together. Sure, some...

Good to be Back

Great to be back on the Muskegon after a six day hiatus due to flooding conditions. The Muskegon remains very high (USGS gauge failed during the high water) and dirty, but fishable. Water temperatures have slipped back to around 41 degrees after several very cold...

It Was a Good Friday

Happy Easter Weekend! Typically Good Friday marks the busiest weekend of the spring steelhead season here on on the Muskegon River. Today wasn't one of those busiest days, however an increase in anglers was certainly notciable. The latest weather event has the Mo' on the...

Steelhead Weather

Raw! Pretty much the best way to describe the the conditions today. Wind, rain, ice, sleet, and snow was a near constant from start to finish. The only benefit to today's weather were some happy steelhead. Pictured is Cade with a beauty from this afternoon....

Exhale

Thankfully day two of Dan & Collins video shoot featured some much happier steelhead! I'm relieved that they didn't make us work quite as hard as yesterday. The Muskegon River rose slightly again today and is flowing above average around 4300cfs. Depending on the rain...

Finally!

It's been a challenge for Captain Don Graham and me to grab a "guides day out," but today we finally pulled it off. The Muskegon River received a nice push of steelhead over the last couple of weeks, and today they dished out some love...

No Pressure

Fun day working with Dan and Collin on a video shoot today featuring our good friend Jen Ripple. As it always goes with cameras in the boat–yah' no the fish are gonna make you work for it! Pretty much how it went today, but we...

Brothers Escape

While Dave & I are at the fly fishing show in Detroit this weekend, guests and brothers Barrett and Collin are enjoying a weekend away at the lodge. Capt. Don put them on the steelhead today and smiles were had by all! I have to...

Above & Below

Fluctuating water flows the past couple days has made for little tougher bite in my boat. Regardless, it has been great not dressing like an eskimo. We've missed some big rains that were slated to push our river to a challenging level. The Muskegon was...
