5-19-10

Absolutely the most gorgeous conditions possible on the Muskegon today:  clear skies, temps in the 70's, and calm winds.  Orioles, lots of orioles, sang their beaks off, much to the delight of Don, who loves these colorful, elusive birds.  The river is dropping and is...

Fly Girls

Capt Dave DeVries and myself, had the pleasure of hosting several wonderful women of  The Fly Girls of Michigan, for the last two days. While the wind was blowing for much of their trip it certainly didn't discourage. Though the bugs wanted to play the...

What Adversity

Day two with Patti and Duane was perfect for streamers; rising water, slight stain, steady barometric pressure, minus the wind. The wind made things rather challenging today despite the near perfect water conditions. The heavy rain from yesterday brought the river up significantly and added...

That’s how she rolls

Patti Beasley, fly fishing club president of Reel Women & Reel Men, Indianapolis Indiana, along with Duane Riddle joined me today for a very wet, but awesome day of streamer fishing on the Muskegon River. Dark skies, big  rain, and muddy run-off always seems to bring...

Prime for trout

Trout fishing is now the full-time game on the Muskegon River. While a few new and old steelhead remain, the river is prime for trout. Hatches are rolling but have taken a little pause in the cool rain today. Bwo's, cinn caddis, and a few...

OD!

For their final time this spring, the Dan Bowen group joined Captains Dave, Don, and myself for a late season steelhead trip. With the previous trips this spring playing out fairly tough, today's trip by comparison was a home run. With the numbers of fish...

5-5-10

Captain Don and I came prepared today for whatever the MO would give us:  C&D rods and indicator/fat line rods for steelhead; sinktips and weight forward floating lines for trout.  Turns out, most of the extra tackle stayed in the case:  we fished steelhead all...

Wade scores his best

Diversified fishing techniques continue to be key on the Muskegon. Morning steelhead fishing gives way to afternoon trout fishing with quality streamer fishing in between. The water has started to drop on the Mo' and this will definitely control the life of the steelhead fishing....
