Small windows

It hasn’t been the most hospitable week on the Muskegon River. Winter tightened its grips on the area with cold winds and daily snows. Only  a few small windows of opportunity presented a chance to wet a line. RQ guide Jay Allen saw that window...

40 degree swing

The crazy weather continues. 70 degrees Friday afternoon and 32 degrees and heavy snow showers Saturday afternoon! Simply crazy to have a 40 degree swing in 24 hours. Pictured is Dr. Whetzel with RQ guide Jay Allen with a nice steelhead off his two-hander before...

Is it August?

Gosh, finishing out the month of May with a weeks worth high temperatures in the middle to upper 80's certiainly isn't something any of us could have predicted a few weeks ago as snow flakes drifted up and down the river valley.  Fortunately our cooler...

Just Weather

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisory's are just titles to hype the news channels. Do the steelhead get the A.P.B.'s? I hardly think so. Pictured is RQ guide Jay Allen releasing a guests well earned chrome during yesterday's storm. A big warm up is on...

Good & Tough?

It's a tale of two different worlds right now on the Mo'. Good to excellent winter trout fishing is common place for RQ guide Jay Allen upstream, while the last two days for me has proven difficult with the two-handers for winter steel downstream. The...

Triple Double?

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...
