Fishing Forecast: 12/28
Fishing has been very good over the past several days. Steelhead and trout are active and water levels are perfect!
What an incredible winter fishery we have on the Muskegon River! Warmer water with active steelhead and trout throughout the winter months. The Muskegon River never freezes so you can always come and fish!
A high of 32 degrees and a chance of double digit hook-ups on chromers on the mighty Muskegon River! (231) 519-7348
What's Working Best?
Floats and spawn has been my bread and butter. We have been averaging 15-20 hook- ups on steelhead daily, 8 -10 landed each day with lots of fat and sassy trout as well. Drift fishing spawn along the bottom has been working well also. Drift fishing gives steelhead a different look and a slower presentation. It's also fun to be able to "Feel" the bite when fish pick up the spawn. Some hits have been really hard as water temperatures are still in the low 40's, warm for this time of year. Fishing should continue to be great.
Muskegon River Steelhead fishing continues to be excellent at this time. Fishing spawn sacks under a float has been out primary means of catching fish. Covering water and boondoogling (side drifting) through salmon spawning gravel and deep pockets. This technique has been producing a ton of fish. Steelhead are settling into the deeper late fall - winter holding locations as the water begins to cool. Look for fantastic fishing over the next three weeks as this year's giant strain of steelhead moves up river!
Muskegon Never Freezes!
Winter tailwater for Steelhead in Michigan.
Unlike the Grand River, White River, and Pere Marquette Rivers, the Muskegon is a tailwater fishery, this means the Muskegon River never freezes! This allows us to guide anglers throughout the winter months for Steelhead and Trout. Fly fishing during the Winter is a beautiful time to be on the water with good numbers of Steelhead and lots of wildlife along the rivers banks.
