Trout

Soon

Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon is done for the season. Sure there are, and will be, a few stragglers left but for all intensive purposes its over. Trout fishing (streamers) should be improved with the rain fall we’ve picked up since last night. Yesterday the river...

Trout Opener

Trout fishing remains good, with the exception during Friday’s high winds they have been pretty predictable. Pictured...

Rain at night…..

Last nights strong storms made for some terrific morning dry fly fishing today on the Muskegon. While we had some shots at some really “good” fish, we were more than happy with some solid trout. Drakes & sulphers were abundant and cripples kept the trout...
