Today was my last day fishing with Jack and Janice of Oklahoma; Dave will fish a final day with them tomorrow. Having spent the last ten days of so with us we have surely come to know each other well. Both Jack and Janice are real troopers considering they have had to endure some less than choice weather in the recent days. While fishing has not been exactly easy both fisherman have had the patience to “wait for it” and let it happen on its own. Pictured is a great salmon shot of both Jack and Janice bundled for bear in true Oklahoma fashion!

The recent rains in the area are sure to make the coming days on the water very promising in the quest for fall steelhead. Both the Manistee and Muskegon rivers are poised for new fish. Swinging flies is at its best now as water temperatures are in the low 50’s and the standard egg fly drift is also producing. If you are looking to target steelhead on the swing for the most aggressive takes of the year-now is the time!

Tight lines,

Capt. Steven Kuieck
