Spring Steelhead

That’s a wrap

Finished up my last official spring steelhead trip today. While it's always bittersweet to put away the steelhead gear, it means that the next time we're out for silver it will be for the years best—fall steelhead! I'm ready for trout and conditions are setting up...

Not Done Yet

The 2017 Muskegon River steelhead run is winding down, but fishable numbers continue to course the river—some of which are bright, recent arrivals.  Tom poses an experienced buck, but two of the steelhead that he and Dave hooked were silver rockets that put both of...

Big Water

April ended with some major rains moving through the area. Thankfully the heaviest stayed just South of our area, however the river is going to get big for a few days. Fishing was pretty good this morning before the guys had to hit the road— Pictured...

Hooked For Life

Introducing young people in to our sport is the only way to ensure that fly fishing continues for generations to come. Now I think it's pretty safe to say that Maverick will fish the rest of his life—he's seen every episode of River Monsters, spent hours...

Duet

Choral director, Dr. Bob Oster, and his best bud, bamboo rod maker, Ron Barch, struck some sweet chords today on the Muskegon River. With the river flow abating, off color water increasingly clear, and summer temps and sun marking the day, the guys flat-out had a...

Summer?

Yes, it's still April, but with summer like temperatures in the mid 70's, it wasn't hard to understand why the steelhead weren't particularly happy today. Despite the tough bite, Craig was rewarded with his first steelhead much to the delight of his guide Dave. Congrats Craig! Capt....

Fun in the Sun

Sunny skies and steelhead do not normally go well together. However when they do, it certainly can be a treat! Pictured is Michael with nice buck on a beautifully sunny day on the Muskegon River. Capt. Steven Kuieck...
