Spring Steelhead Tag

Good to be Back

Great to be back on the Muskegon after a six day hiatus due to flooding conditions. The Muskegon remains very high (USGS gauge failed during the high water) and dirty, but fishable. Water temperatures have slipped back to around 41 degrees after several very cold...

Going Up!

High water steelheading has been the name of the game so far this spring. Mother Nature may deliver more precipitation than our Mighty Mo' can handle in the next 24 hours. Hopefully this will pass us by and we can continue fishing, at least with...

Steelhead Weather

Raw! Pretty much the best way to describe the the conditions today. Wind, rain, ice, sleet, and snow was a near constant from start to finish. The only benefit to today's weather were some happy steelhead. Pictured is Cade with a beauty from this afternoon....

Some days try as you might–steelhead fishing is really not on your terms! Today was one of those days when I just wanted it bad. Its been a fairly tough week and it was just time for the river to give it back. Yeah right–this...

Grabby

Conditions on the river are ideal for two-handed rod on the Mo'. The majority of fish have spawned and most are now in the process of fattening up on their way back to the lake. While we will certainly see a trickle of new fish...
