New & Familiar

Smallmouth bass fishing continues to be good on the Muskegon River. Whether you enjoy top-water or streamers, both are regularly taking bass. Look for this fishing to continue through early September. Pictured above is new friend Mike and his son with a nice double and...

First Time Fly Fishing

Chris and his son Henry joined me this morning for an introduction to fly fishing experience on the Muskegon River. While today was Henry’s first time fly fishing, it certainly wasn’t his first time fishing. Henry proudly told stories of the the Redfish and sea...

Great couple of days

The Kehl group has been with us for the past few days. The steelhead were very cooperative for the guys which made up for our continued poor weather. The Muskegon River bumped up a little today, but with generally (hopefully) dry weather forecasted we’ll see...

Behind Schedule

Salmon fishing is slowly gaining momentum. Water temps are the root cause of the slow build into fall season as the river flow is a above average. Cool over night temperatures are forecasted in the short-term and should aid in lowering water temps soon. Big thanks...

Wow!

I’m not sure how much luck Kris has left in her bag? A beautiful September Steelhead last week on her two-hander and today, one of the best brown trout I’ve ever had a client catch (ever) on the swing no less! Wow!   Obviously Kris is no...

September Steelhead

September Steelhead are often hard to come by on the Muskegon River. Patience and a little bit of luck always help. Kris fishes with me often and has been working on her two-handed game over the last year both for trout, smallmouth bass, and of...

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...

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...

78 years young

Tony and his daughter Kristen joined me the last two days to swing flies on the Muskegon River. I’ve fished with Tony a number of times over the years and each have been memorable. Certainly some years have featured numbers of steelhead, big fish, or...
