Trout

Fall Brown Trout

The McKay group is with us just as they have been for past nearly 20yrs this week in October. Always a group we look forward seeing each season! New to the group is 15yr old Kaiden from Indiana. While the salmon and steelhead proved tough...

Ladies Day

Suzy and here sister Barb joined me for a fun filled day of good stories, laughter and some nice fly fishing on the Muskegon River. While we did cast to a few salmon today, we spent the majority of the day fishing the dark water...

Bows, no Bison

The last time Jake and I fished together was in 2018. We and four families spent a couple weeks taking in all that Yellowstone Park could offer by RV. The lasting memories we share fly fishing Slough Creek are nothing short of comical as we...

Bows

A sense of “normal” probably bests describes my day today. Joining me today was long-time guest and friend Dr. Chad Afman and his father Judd. It was felt great to catch up with friends and even shake hands. Honestly if there is anything that this...

Fall colors

Fall fly fishing on the Muskegon River is well underway. The river has fallen nicely and things are getting back to normal. Salmon are well distributed throughout the system and early fall steelhead have arrived. This beautiful Muskegon river brown trout was poaching eggs behind...

Still transitioning

Last weeks warm weather has slowed our turn toward fall. The overall mood of the trout, smallmouth, and salmon has been off all week. Thankfully the trout were moderately accommodating yesterday before the big winds kicked up. The water temperature on the Muskegon is on...

Catching Crazy

Sorry for the delay in reports. Between the weather, kid travel sports, and my real estate business the last week and a half has been crazy. Dry fly fishing on the Muskegon is good to extremely good depending where you are at on the river...
