Trout

Small windows

It hasn’t been the most hospitable week on the Muskegon River. Winter tightened its grips on the area with cold winds and daily snows. Only  a few small windows of opportunity presented a chance to wet a line. RQ guide Jay Allen saw that window...

TGIF

Great finish to a great week on the Muskegon. Tommy poses a magnificent brown trout from today. Yes, that's three years in a row for this kid—congrats bud! Capt. Steven Kuieck...

Now we’re talking

After several windy days it was great to have a calm day. It's pretty much "name your game" right now on the Mo'. Match the hatch, swinging wets, streamers, etc.—it's all productive! AM spinner falls have been dramatically reduced from last week, but if your willing...

First Time

Josh has fished from California to the Bahamas but never  fly fished for trout, so we started with a gray drake dry, once he got the casting down it was game on. Then in the afternoon we fished streamers and then went to fishing with...
