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...

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...

Another year of memories

Fall fly fishing on the Muskegon River marks the annual return of many of our longest returning clients. Many have shared this time of year with us for over twenty years in a row. Today marked just such an occasion for the guys from the...

High skies

High skies and dropping water made for some tough fly fishing on the Muskegon River for  steelhead today. Perseverance and determination are always key on days like these. Pictured is Mark under the guidance of RQ guide Ryan Randolph with Marks first steelhead. Congrats! Capt. Steven...
