Easter Weekend Steelhead Fishing

Well between Good Friday and today these had to be the two busiest days on the Muskegon River I can remember,  there are plenty of fish around between the fresh ones in the dark water and spawners on gravel bars.  The number of dropbacks should be increasing daily which is an option for those that don't want to get up in the middle of the night to camp on their gravel bar.  The hens we caught back bouncing spawn today were still tight with the exception of one which had just started dropping eggs.  Ed and John are pictured below with some nice Steelhead from today.
