Spring Steelhead

Neighbors Six

RiverQuest guides Don Graham, Jay Allen, and I had the pleasure of hosting the Murphy group—guys, who, I'm told, all live in the same Chicago neighborhood! Today, though, they found themselves in ours, and the steelhead rolled out a great welcome. After sampling Chef Jenn's...

Quick Study

Try less than 15 casts with a fly rod and a casting style you've never experienced and then hookup with a gorgeous fresh run hen steelhead, and you would be Craig—a first time steelhead fly fisherman!  I've had some quick studies over the years, but Craig...

MTB day 2

Day two with MTB was a little slower than the first.  A great time was had by all and a few nice still had made their way in front of the cameras. Winter is forecasted to stick around a little longer— A return to a white...

Moody Tongue & Steelhead?

Our new friends from Moody Tongue Brewing Co. are joining us this weekend at the lodge. While we we certainly are spoiled by some tremendous beer here in West Michigan, it's always fun to expand our horizons and taste some new out-of-state favorites. Both Dave...

Raw

Pretty much the only way to describe today on the river was raw! Cold–blustery east winds accompanied by driving rain, perfect weather for steelhead fishing or sitting in your office. While the steelhead did cooperate in the morning most of the day was spent trying...

“Excelsior!”

Not often that one hears Latin in a fishing boat, but when Dr.Bob Oster, his buddy Ron Barch, and guest Marty—a former professional trumpet player and music professor—would land a steelhead, Bob and Ron would blurt out, "Excelsior!" Pretty cool! To be sure, Muskegon River steelhead...

Pancakes Anyone?

Our RiverQuest customers treat us guides very well and regularly thank us with gratuities at day's end for which we are most grateful. Certainly, today was no exception with host Jeff S generously tipping me and his guest Jeff bestowing a unique thanks.  An ex-Marine,...

Recon Baptism

Today, Dr. Jeff, an accomplished fly fisherman, baptized one my new Orvis Recon 7 wt. fly rods that I had purchased for indicator fishing steelhead. No, he didn't baptize with water but better yet with multiple hookups and a couple of steelhead brought to hand...
