Ben Sorsen and Bela Sandor joined me for a wonderful day of early spring steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River. Fishing today differed from yesterday by needing to work the pools thoroughly. In a few spots the fish seemed to come easily but most locations required a few diligent drifts. Clown eggs were again the top producer in my boat with only one fish taking a medium size stone fly pattern. Clarity is improving dramatically up stream while water temperatures remain steady. The river is ever so slowly falling; it dropped about 2 inches today max. Look for most of the fish to hold in the classic cold water locations with only a few fish venturing medium to shallow. Pictured is Bela and Ben with two of the six we landed.
