The Last Day of February

Steelhead fishing has been amazing the last couple days.  There are some new fish showing up and plenty of Winter holdovers that are putting on a big time late winter feed.  I still have some March and April dates available and judging by the fishing right now it should be another great Spring Steelhead season so don't wait to book your dates.  Here are Ed and Fritz with a couple from today.

Muskegon River Steelhead

Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River was very good today.  Water level is good at just over 2,000 cfs. with a slight stain and temp is in the low 30's.  There is a mix of darker winter holdover fish and some bright more recent arrivals,  we should see a real good push of spring fish soon.  Boat traffic is still minimal and fishing is great so if you want to get out and catch some Steelhead before the crowds of "Spring time" show up give me a call or e-mail.  (616)204-4999    I still have some prime time dates open for March and April but these won't last long so book now!!  Here are Ed and Fritz with a couple of today's nice fish.

2/24/2013  Ed with a gorgeous winter buck.

2/24/2013  Fritz with a nice colored Steelhead.

Michigan Steelhead Fishing

Deb and Jim had a great day on the Muskegon River with double digits to the net on a half day!!  The river is in great shape at 2,300 cfs. and still holding great color at around 4 feet of visibility.  Most of the fish we are catching are colored up winter holdovers but we are in the middle of February so the first pushes of spring Steelhead are not far off.  Boat traffic is minimal to non-existent depending on the day and section of river fished, if you want to take advantage of some great winter Steelhead fishing and don't like to share the water with other boats now is the time.  For those who are waiting for Spring dates are booking for March and April so book early to get the dates you want.  Call or e-mail for more info or to book a Steelhead trip.  

2/13/2013  Deb with a healthy hen from a productive half day on the Muskegon.
