Spring Steelhead

26 years

In my 26 years of guiding the Muskegon River I have never seen the river this low–it’s honestly shocking to see it like this. I honestly didn’t know if I’d get my sled back to port today. Joining me today was longtime guest and friend...

Worth the Trip!

When a son hops a plane from his home in San Francisco to fish steelhead on the Muskegon River with his Dad and four of their friends, it's only fitting that he be rewarded! And so it was for Nick, who boated this fine brown...

First’s

The Muskegon River remains extremely low. This is the first time in my 26 years of guiding that I’ve ever seen it this low in the spring. The historical data does show a similar low flow back in the early 2000’s, but I’d argue that...

Some good ones

The Muskegon River continues to be extremely low for their time of year. Negotiating the river is causing consideration for area guides. I’ve been overly impressed by most folk giving a wave, text, or call to address their intentions before blasting through the skinny water...
