Spring Steelhead

Sunshine Steelhead

I'd normally complain about sunshine when fishing for steelhead, but since it has been so unseasonably cold I'm glad to bank a little bit of the warmth!  Fishing today certainly wasn't the easiest, but Steve was able to enjoy catching his first steelhead on the...

Novice No More!

Pretty cool how quickly golfer and hockey player, Travis, my nephew-in-law, and his dear friend, Tom, took to the fly rods today,  Despite high river flows and gusty winds, the guys hooked and landed both steelhead and some very chunky rainbow and brown trout. Tom's...

Steelhead Weather

Exhale

Thankfully day two of Dan & Collins video shoot featured some much happier steelhead! I'm relieved that they didn't make us work quite as hard as yesterday. The Muskegon River rose slightly again today and is flowing above average around 4300cfs. Depending on the rain...
