Fall fishing on the Muskegon river is slowly coming along. Some Kings, some Coho, and some steelhead are available in relatively low numbers. Slowly hunting around seems to be the best approach. Over the last week or so I’ve been seeing what appeared to be some small schools of little skipper steelhead darting around in a few of our extremely clear runs. We brought the 3wt. & 4wt. trout Spey’s along today and Carl (pictured above) was able to swing up this little steelie on a classic West Coast soft hackle. Fun stuff & definitely pretty sporty on the baby two-hander. Pictured lower is long-time guest and friend Chuck Booth with a big ol’ king from the morning.
