Steelhead fishing just doesn't get any better than the last couple trips we have had.  Ed and Scott joined me on the Muskegon River Sunday and landed more Steelhead in a half day than anyone could ask for in 2 full days.  I had a much needed day off Monday, only my second since returning from Alaska back in September, then Ray and Colin joined me for what would be another unbelievable day.  Despite the forecasted high winds we decided to hit it anyway and put just shy of 20 Steelhead to the net by 11:30 a.m. when we called it quits not because of the wind but sore arms.  With rising water levels look for another surge of fresh chrome Michigan Fall Steelhead to charge up river and join the already healthy population of our chrome friends.  Steelhead fishing should be nothing short of fantastic through November so if you are thinking of a guided trip I suggest you wait no longer as open dates will fill up soon.  Call or e-mail for more info or to lock in a day.

Ray is all smiles after landing this buck.

Manistee River Steelhead

Fished with Clark, Bob, Jim and Gary Wednesday and Thursday on the Big Manistee River, we hit a good number of Steelhead each day and even landed a handfull of nice adult fish.  The Steelhead season on the Muskegon River started with what was almost a hostile takeover by skippers, (16 to 20 inch)  Steelhead.  Over the last 5 days we have recieved a good shot of larger adult fish and there will be even more on the way with the rain coming down right now and more in the forecast.  Considering the number of Steelhead in the local river systems right now the last week of October and the first 2 or 3 weeks of November will no doubt provide excellent Steelhead fishing.  Give me a call if you want to get out and experience the excitement of leaping chrome fall Steelhead on the Muskegon River this November.  (616)204-4999

Muskegon River Steelhead!!!!!!!!

There is a fair and growing number of Steelhead present in the Muskegon River system right now, if things keep up I will be targeting Steelhead every day from here on out.  Aaron and Andy from England had a day to dream about for mid October on the Muskegon River.
