Big Flows – Spring Steelhead Muskegon River

While our minds may be focused on upcoming Spring Steelhead, it’s impossible to ignore the high water on the Muskegon River.  Melting snow and heavy rains always combine to create an angry Muskegon River during thaws. In some years this anger is worse than others and mid-February, we are already seeing big flows on the Muskegon River. Please keep your thoughts with our area people near the Croton Dam who reside in lower lying areas on the Muskegon River.  This high water event is surely having an impact on them and in more severe ways than lack of fish biting.

It’s important to take note that as the boat launches are closed during these flood waters for your safety, they are also closed in consideration of the waterlogged homes along the Muskegon River who are being impacted by the unseasonably high waters.

There will eventually be a silver lining to the high water with an abundance of spring steelhead available as the water ebbs on the Muskegon River. But until it recedes, please be considerate of the property owners along the river.
