Trout

PB & Trout Spey

A smorgasbord of opportunities are available on the Muskegon River right now. Streamers, nymphs, and wet flies are all producing. The only missing opportunity remains dry fly fishing. Hopefully as the Isonychia get going we can salvage some surface fishing. After streamer fishing early today we...

Weather change

A significant cold front brought additional needed rain fall to the area last night. This will continue to help our river return to more normal flows. Yesterday Dr. Afman and Dr. Burgess joined me for a nice day of trout fishing on the Muskegon River....

Overdue

Sorry for the lapse in reports! The Muskegon has been at near record low flows and has finally come up to make fishing a little easier...

Good times

Roger and Al have been with me for the last several days. We’ve known and fished together for well over 25 years. The river treated both Roger and Al very kindly despite the low numbers of steelhead. Neither Roger or Al were big on photographs...

Fall Brown Trout

The McKay group is with us just as they have been for past nearly 20yrs this week in October. Always a group we look forward seeing each season! New to the group is 15yr old Kaiden from Indiana. While the salmon and steelhead proved tough...

Ladies Day

Suzy and here sister Barb joined me for a fun filled day of good stories, laughter and some nice fly fishing on the Muskegon River. While we did cast to a few salmon today, we spent the majority of the day fishing the dark water...

Bows, no Bison

The last time Jake and I fished together was in 2018. We and four families spent a couple weeks taking in all that Yellowstone Park could offer by RV. The lasting memories we share fly fishing Slough Creek are nothing short of comical as we...

Bows

A sense of “normal” probably bests describes my day today. Joining me today was long-time guest and friend Dr. Chad Afman and his father Judd. It was felt great to catch up with friends and even shake hands. Honestly if there is anything that this...

Soon

Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon is done for the season. Sure there are, and will be, a few stragglers left but for all intensive purposes its over. Trout fishing (streamers) should be improved with the rain fall we’ve picked up since last night. Yesterday the river...

Trout Opener

Statewide, trout season opens today. Traditionally this “holiday” means a lot to many across the State of Michigan as rivers that have been closed since the end of September open up to trout fishing. Enjoy your time today exploring your favorite old haunts.   My son Zach...
