First Cast a Charm!

Dear friend, former colleague, and now retired Jenison Pubic Schools superintendent, Tom TenBrink, launched one cast and met this Muskegon River buck. Of course, I had to tease him about his magnifying it’s size by nearly having it kiss my camera phone!

Steelhead are coursing the Muskegon, but extraordinarily high river flows make for challenging fly fishing. Nonetheless, persistence and ensuring that likely holds are fully covered can spell success. Fortunately, according to the National Weather Service Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service, the flows begin to drop steadily toward more normal flows beginning on Sunday of next week. Here’s hoping!
