Mid May Steelhead

Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River is hanging on but numbers have dropped.  The best days are lower traffic days with limited areas holding numbers of fish.  There are just enough fish on spawning gravel to keep some biters hanging out behind them and that is where we have been getting it done float fishing.  Most of the fish we are catching are drop backs or ones that have been pushed off gravel by boat traffic but I have noticed a very limited number of new arrivals over the last few days.  We will fish as long as there are willing biters available but it looks like the end is very near.  I am leaving for Alaska on June 12 this year and will return around September 8.  I have some openings for King Salmon and Fall Steelhead fishing when I return so if you want to get in on some of the best fishing of the year book it soon as days will fill up fast.  Openings are September 14, 15, 21, 28, 29 and 30.  October 5, 6, 8 and 11.  November 2, 10, 16, 17, 20, 22, 23, 24, 26, 28, 29 and 30.  Call (616)204-4999 or e-mail jeff@muskegonriverguide.com to book a fall date or two.  If you are trying to book any of those dates between June 12 and September 8 please allow a little extra time for a response due to a very busy schedule and a 4 hour time difference while I am in Alaska.

Here are a few pictures from the last couple days on the Muskegon River.
