Fishing Report 5/11/19

Weather hasn’t exactly been what we all hoped for this past week with some heavy downpours and gusty winds out of the North. We have seen a few glimpses of warmer weather with the sun peaking through but don’t expect the next week to be much better. Pack your rain

May Offers Up Crystal Chrome Steelhead & 20″ Rainbows!!

Only fitting to end the day with another crystal chrome steelhead from the Muskegon.  With more rain in the forecast, look for the steelhead run to continue with new steelhead migrating up the river system.

Important to note; the Muskegon River is one of the last river systems in Michigan to start migratory big game salmon and steelhead runs and even more important to understand the Muskegon is one of the last rivers in Michigan where the big game fish runs end.  In recent years past, the steelhead run has lasted well up to the first weeks of June.  This steelhead season looks to be no different.

Time To Change Gears

We finally lost the last little pile of snow at the house last week.  Sunday we had a Oriole land on the feeder and Hummingbird zipped by my head while Mountain Biking the other day. What a relief it finally feels and looks like Spring up here.  We’re seeing some

Finally, after another week of dismal weather we are going to have a beautiful weekend! Overnight temperatures will still dip below forty so you can sleep in a little before getting out on the rivers. 

Most anglers have now shifted their focus towards trout on our local rivers though
