January Wrap Up
Winter Steelhead Fly Fishing In January
As January’s warmup drew to a close, we began the month of February contemplating this past month’s fly fishing successes with giant smiles on our faces and with fond memories. When reflecting on how terrific the results were in January, we can’t help but feel excited about the upcoming month of Steelhead Fly Fishing on the Muskegon River! Particularly when we know it will only get better from here on out!
Successful fly fishing on the Muskegon River for Steelhead in January is not anything new, but when you combine the incredible colors of our steelhead with the ease of their availability thus far in 2018, January will surely be looked upon in retrospect as truly special.
As daylight begins to grow longer each day, the remaining Steelhead in the Muskegon River are taking note as well. Their drive to move to the river’s spawning grounds grows even as the angle of the sun slowly increases. Moreover, as snow begins to thaw and future rains boost the river’s flow, pushes of Spring Steelhead upriver will become the norm.
Whether Swinging Flies or Deep-water Nymphing, particularly cold water is, of course, one of the greatest challenges Fly Fisherman need to overcome. With extremely cold water translating into slower fish metabolism, we recommend finding soft seams and locations with structure as key elements for Steelhead Fly Fishing success. By working these spots with slow swings and drifts, while staying alert to light hits, you’ll set yourself up for some heavy pulls and quality Steelhead.
The great news is… there are plenty of Steelhead in the Muskegon River and only going to increase with each passing day! We truly believe 2018 will afford us some of the highest quality Steelhead Fishing we’ve been afforded for quite some time.
Spring Steelhead Season will be here before we know it!
