Trout

Harvest season

Typically when you think of the fall harvest, the images of bushels of apples or wagons of shell corn come to mind. However in our river world the fall run of spawning salmon provide a much needed harvest of caviar for our beautiful Muskegon River...

Great Finish

It's been a fantastic week on the Muskegon River. Surely the past two-weeks will probably hold its own for many years to come. Joining me today were the Visser brothers Jack and Tommy–they kindly brought their dad Jim along to take pictures and square the...

Tremendous

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...
