Muskegon River Fishing Report

Back bouncing spawn was great again today, there was quite a bit more boat traffic to work around but the bite was still on in the bright sunshine.  Muskegon River water level has dropped to just over 5,000 cfs and is clearing with around 3 feet of visibility today.  We should be able to chase dropbacks throughout the river system for the next 2 weeks and get away from any crowds that may show up once they can see what fish are left on gravel.  It's almost time to head for Alaska and that means it's time to start filling the fall calendar, I have some dates left in late September for King Salmon and a few for late October and early November for those chrome bullet fall Steelhead we all love so much.  Our customers have grown to love back bouncing spawn for fall Steelhead so get your dates booked before they are gone, I have email capabilities all summer while guiding in Alaska so that is the best way to get your fall dates booked between June and September.  For those wondering I am headed back to Mission Lodge in Alaska's Bristol Bay region, this will be my 9th summer guiding in AK and I am looking forward to many more.  Jim and Alex are pictured below with a few Steelhead caught back bouncing spawn today on the Muskegon River.
