Muskegon River Fishing Charters

Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing was outstanding once again today, I'm not sure how long the big numbers can last but we are taking full advantage of it while they are available.  Chris and his dad Mike joined me today for another epic day of Muskegon River Steelheading.  Water level is still holding at a good fishing level but is clearing, warmer weather ahead should bring the last shot of runoff and more water.  There are good numbers of spring Steelhead available and more showing up daily, give us a call if you want to experience some of the best Steelhead fishing in Michigan.  Chris and his dad Mike with a few from today.

Muskegon River Fishing Report

Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing has been outstanding for the past 5 days, water levels have dropped and cleared a bit but are holding at a good fishing level.  As things warm up we should get another bump in water level as there is enough snow up north to give a decent amount of runoff.  We are hitting a mix of dime bright Steelhead and darker fish that have been around a while, most of them are starting to fight a bit harder as well, we had a half dozen of them actually jump today!!  Back bouncing spawn has been producing big numbers of hookups for us each day, if you have never tried this technique you are missing out on the best Steelhead fishing Michigan has to offer, give us a call and see for yourself.  (616)204-4999

Muskegon River Fishing Report

Ken, Dale, Brad and Tom joined Kris M. and myself today for what can only be described as an absolute beat down on the Steelhead in the Muskegon River.  It seems that either we hit a big push of fish or every Steelhead in the river bit today, both boats were well into double digits before noon!!  The water has dropped a bit but is still in prime shape for Steelhead fishing, water temp is in the low 30's.  Today was the first day that it seemed all the "spots" have filled in with fish, some produced 1 while others produced up to 6.  I fished the PM yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of snow pack up north which means more runoff and more water this spring!  Below is some of today's fun including a couple double headers Ken and Dale put in the net.

Muskegon River Fishing Report

Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River has been great the last few days, water level is very nice today rising to 4000 cfs with good color!!  High water is our favorite part of Spring Steelhead fishing.  Back bouncing spawn has produced most of our fish lately but we did take a few bites on plugs today.  Spent the day with Reed, his dad Joe and Scott in the ice/rain storm today, we had the river completely to ourselves!! 10 year old Reed did a fantastic job landing a bunch of Muskegon River Steelhead.  We found chrome males, hens and even a few darker holdover fish today, water temp was 35 so there is no need to worry about the "run" charging the Croton Dam just yet.  I had a cancellation for this sunday March 27 if anyone is interested it's my last open date for March.  I do have some openings for April, call (616)204-4999

Muskegon River Fishing Report

Steelhead Fishing is improving each day with more and more Chrome Steelhead entering the Muskegon River from Lake Michigan.  Muskegon River water level is very nice at just over 3000 cfs and a nice stain with temps in the mid 30's.  Back Bouncing Spawn has been our main focus but fish have also been caught float fishing and plug fishing.  We are booked up for the rest of March but have some good dates available for April so give us a call if you want to experience some of the best Steelhead fishing of the year.  Have a larger group?  Call about our multiple boat specials.
3/21/2011  Chrome hens were the order of the day.

Muskegon River Fishing Report

As expected the river level stablized and the fishing is turning back on.  I had a cancellation for today so Kris and I decided to hit the river for a couple hours this morning and found some willing Steelhead.  Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River should only get better through the week, the best fishing of the spring is coming!

Muskegon River Steelhead

Well I've been asking for water and we got it, as usual the fishing is a bit challenging while the river rises but should be great once the fish settle in and get used the increased flow.  We have caught a couple winter hens that are nearly done spawning over the last couple days.  Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing should be great in the coming weeks with higher and warming water.

Muskegon River Steelhead

Ed and Scott had a great morning of Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing. Most of the fish today were darker with only a couple fresh fish.  Water level dropped a bit over night but is still holding decent color, hopefully the rain forecasted for thursday and friday will give us the water we need, Steelhead are definately filling up on stoneflies and will continue to do so until we get a good high water.
