Spring Steelhead Tag

Good start to the week

Good start to the week—some much needed rain fall fell over the weekend and gave the Muskegon a little extra water. I don’t expect this to last long as the extended forecast continues to be very dry! The steelhead treated Eric and Craig kindly today....

Happy Lady

Spent the day with Kristine hoping the Mo’ would treat her a little more kindly than our past two outings. Thankfully, despite the howling breeze and bright skies Kris was able to bring a couple nice steelhead to net. Pictured is Kris with a fantastic hen...

Well Earned

Refreshed?

Nice to have had a few days off for the holiday. Rest always does the mind & body good. The Muskegon River is falling nicely after several high-water days. The river is pretty clear despite the volume of flow. There has been a nice “refresh”...
