Muskegon River Spring Steelhead

Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River was very fast and furious this morning.  Mark and Jim were into double digits by 10:30 am, we decided to take an early lunch at around 11:30 then the decision was made by them to quit so our lines never did hit the water again.  All the fish were caught back bouncing spawn and once again all were fat tight pre spawn hens aside from one drop back.  The push of fish that showed up in the last few days should be several days from spawning as their eggs are still in skein.  It looked like the gravel fishing may get good as well, or maybe it is already good I have not fished gravel yet but a couple of the boats we saw on gravel were hooking fish at a good pace.  Mark and Jim are pictured below with a few that I could convince them to pose with this morning, cold hands was the excuse??
