End of a Season?

Cooler weather (at least nights) look to have us slowly transitioning away from summer fly fishing. The river temperature in the Big Rapids area of the Muskegon has fallen to around 67 degrees. The temp slowly increases as you head west toward Newaygo, but overall the Muskegon is finally cooling down.

Smallmouth bass fishing over the last last two days was pretty good despite the wind. Top-water patterns continued to be best for my clients though the fish really wanted the poppers fished like a minnow escaping on the surface. Pictured above is Jace with a terrific smallmouth that ate his boogle bug midday today.

Trout fishing is on the horizon….
