If you’re going by the calendar, we are fishing for spring steelhead. But the weather has other ideas! Winter is having a hard time letting go, but the forecast shows that spring is coming sooner than later. Woke up to brutal cold temps this morning with so muc slush flowing down the river, would have made fishing impossible. But by the time we started mid day, the slush was gone and we were in the clear. Picture below are Ed and Fritz with a couple fish they put in the net today.

It’s March already but winter isn’t done with us yet. Looks like another little cold snap on the way for next week then the possibility of some mild weather on the way. There are Steelhead throughout the river and fishing has been decent when we’ve gotten out. We will likely get a good flush of water once it warms up with all the snow pack to the north. For those looking to book a trip this spring the time is now. Opening bags are limited. Ed and Fritz has a decent afternoon today, here are a couple of the fish they put in the net.

Wow have I neglected this page!! Well, winter steelhead fishing has been pretty good in 2019 when we are able to get out. The cold snap we had locked up the river with ice and rendered boat ramps below Newaygo useless. The river has since cleared of ice but ramps are covered in a thick layer of ice that will take some time to come back into shape. I was talked into taking a break from snowmobiling to do an afternoon trip today and fishing was pretty good. Here are a few of the fish we put in the net.
