Muskegon River Steelhead

Kris and I got out for a few hours today and fishing was pretty good.  We found enough Steelhead and a few Browns to keep us busy.

1/31/2014  We hooked a handful of Lake Run Browns today but this one was noteworthy.....

1/31/2014  Because I caught it twice about 5 minutes and 20 yards apart.

We probably should have stayed home today with single digit air temps and 20 to 30 mph wind but Roy is here from South Africa and today was his day to fish.  Fishing was not easy in those conditions but he managed to put a couple nice Steelhead in the net before we retreated to the warmth of the truck.  Steelhead fishing has been pretty good this Winter with all the fall fish that came in and we are setting up for a good spring with all this snow pack, that is if you like high water like me.  I have plenty of openings through February so if you see a warm up in the forecast and want to experience Winter Steelhead fishing give me a call.  For those that want to wait for warmer weather you should get serious about booking Spring dates because they are filling up.   Here are a couple fish from today.

Muskegon River Steelhead.

Winter fishing on the Muskegon River has been pretty good most days.  There is little to no boat traffic mostly due to bad launch conditions.  Christian and Jess had good fishing today.

1/17/2014  A nice Start to the day.

1/17/2014  Jess with a nice buck.

1/17/2014  Christian with a plump hen.

1/17/2014  It was a great day with no other boats on the water.

Winter Steelhead

Hit the river for about 2 hours this morning with Kris and the fishing was good.  Conditions are great right now, water level is about 2,200 cfs. with a slight stain from runoff.  There are a good number of Steelhead spread throughout the system but access can be tough in spots due to snow build up.  I have openings for Winter Steelhead fishing through January and February, now would also be a good time to get your Spring dates booked.  Here is Kris and myself with a couple fish from a very productive hour and a half on the river.

Steelhead and Browns

Winter has lifted it's chilly grip at least enough for us to be able to fish.  There are plenty of fish around right now and fishing has been pretty good.  We found a couple great Lake Run Browns along with our Steelhead today and boat traffic was non existent.  I have openings this week for anyone that wants to take advantage of the milder weather and catch some Steelhead.  Jordin, Triston and Mike are pictured with some fish from today.

1/12/2014  Jordin with a hefty buck from today.

January Steelhead

It was good to get back out on the river after the deep freeze we had and fishing was pretty good.   The forecast for the next week looks great so if you want to get out on the river for some Winter Steelhead action give me a call.  Pete and Paul are pictured with a few of today's fish.
