Muskegon River Guide

There are still good numbers of Steelhead in the system, they can be found in and around gravel areas and in deep pools.  Boat traffic was more like mid April rather than mid May today so we decided to back bounce spawn through some pools after lunch looking for dropbacks and fish that were pushed off gravel by the boats and sun.  We found a few biters in the hour and a half we back bounced before calling it a day and pointing the boat at the ramp around 1:30.  Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River should remain good for another week or so especially if some of the boat traffic subsides.  I am going to dedicate the day to back bouncing spawn for dropbacks tomorrow as I am sure the traffic will not be less than today,  we will see how it goes.  John and Troy from yesterday morning, Ed from last evening, Mark and Jim from today are pictured below with a few Steelhead.
