The Muskegon right now has it all: trout on indicators behind the sucker beds, trout on streamers, trout on dry flies—caddis and grey drakes. Fellow guide and best bud, Don Graham, and I were privileged to experience the best dry fly fishing we’ve had in a long, long time. When both of us lose track of the number of carry-over trout brought to hand on dry flies, it’s a special, special time on the water. Not only that: both of us lost multiple “memory fish”—surely, from the glimpses we caught of them, trout 18+ inches on grey drake patterns. 5x tippets sheered on dry fly hookups? In short, an absolutely incredible afternoon and evening on the MO. Pictured is Don and a sampling of our happiness. Something good is going on with the MO: healthy, fat trout, in greater numbers…. Can’t wait to get out again!
