Trout

Pass it on

As a fly fishing guide, many of the seasons best days are reserved for customers. Personal time on the water is often reserved for R&D and days off are deligated to catching up on life away from the river. Though all of those parts of...

Schools out!

How do you kick off summer vaction right? A magnum sized Muskegon River brown oughta do the job! Tommy and his dad spent the first day of summer vaction with me today. I'm pretty sure some serious memories were made! Keep it up Tommy–can't wait...

Winter trout fishing continues to be excellent! In fact, the recent Arctic blast has only made it better. On the fence about getting out? Today's featured picture is a triple double—on a recent trip Jay's client was fighting a double on his single rig only to...

Embrace the Chill

Certainly fishing this week would be deemed crazy as single-digit highs and negative windchills will idle our fishing for a short period of time. However RQ guide Jay Allen lives for this time of year on the Muskegon River. Winter trout isn't for faint of...
