Postcard Nice

Another postcard perfect day on the Muskegon River. Eric and Dave joined me today after several weather related postponements earlier this spring. To say they hit the lottery with sunny skies and low 70’s afternoon temperatures would be an understatement, but much deserved. The river continues...

A Nice Day

Picture perfect weather made for a very nice day on the Muskegon River today. Despite the abundant sunshine steelhead fishing was pretty solid. The river dropped considerably today and bright days like today will not afforded the same security to our spring steelhead going forward....

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”...

“Come Fish with Us”

”Come fish with us” Orvis hosted trip got underway today with temperatures in the 60’s and a very busy river. I honestly can’t blame anyone who took to the river today, nice weather & steelhead fishing don’t often go hand in hand. Changing conditions has...
