Muskegon River Spring Steelhead Fishing

Steelhead fishing was very good today on the Muskegon River, the morning bite was fast and furious with big bright eggs and flashy fry patterns taking most of the bites.  There are still a good number of healthy hens just starting to spawn so things should last a few weeks yet.  Bill and Malcolm were in my boat today and are pictured below with a few of the more than 2 dozen they landed.  I have May 12, 14, 15 and 16 open for Spring Steelhead Fishing, dropbacks should be plentiful for those that would rather back bounce spawn for fish in pools as opposed to fishing gravel.
