Trout

Fantastic

Dry fly fishing is about as good as it gets right now on the Muskegon River. Pictured is Jerry with a truly awesome brown trout that took a drake this morning off his 7.5' 3wt! Have a great Holiday Weekend! Capt. Steven Kuieck...

Warp Speed

I don't think Mother Nature understands a gentle progression of one season to the next. Last week we were easing along toward summer and bam, 85 degrees weather rolls in and we jump to mid July! Needless say, we went from having a few drakes...

Over Due

Sorry for the lag in reports. Trout fishing has been a lot like the weather lately– it's had it's ups & downs! Streamer fishing has provided the most consistent fishing fry patterns or medium sized nut crackers. Trout Spey has had its moments lately and...

Winter Colors

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow yesterday–an early spring is on the way. According to Phil, six more weeks of gray skies is what to expect. Fortunately for us, we are able to chase our gray away and marvel at the vibrant hues of...

Trout fishing on the Muskegon has something for everyone right now–evening hatches and daytime fishing with nymphs and streamers. Drakes have primarily been an evening affare, morning spinner falls have yet to materialize. As the emergences build, I'd expect morning spinner falls to improve. Pictured...

Man Up!

High winds created a less than desireable conditions on the Muskegon today. Near perfect water flow, temperature, and clarity remain the norm. Time to man up and push through the wind! Peter, no stranger to the blog, brought his eldest boy Pete to experience some...

301’s

Excellent streamer conditions continue on the Muskegon. Joining me today were two brand new fly fisherman–yes, day one they learned full-court press streamer tactics! The art of fly fishing rarely begins midway through the book, but with a mere 8 hours to learn to cast...
