Trout

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...

Trout Spey

Trout Spey – Muskegon River

Good times and Trout Spey go hand-in-hand if you’re a two-handed addict like myself. The Muskegon River is falling nicely and soon will be back to near normal flows for May. Streamer fishing and trout Spey are both optimal with the river banks full of...
