SALMON(September thru October)
Massive runs of wild Chinook and silver Coho salmon ascend the Muskegon River from September through the peak of October. These fish typically range from 10 to 15 pound class, with several approaching the 20 to 30 pound mark. These hard driving freight trains will perform aerial displays and fight for over an hour. Truly big game fishing at it’s best!
We have come to look forward to the early to mid-September season when the fresh salmon are pooled up in the deepest runs on the river. Here these beasts are very aggressive in a pre-spawn mode and will crush various streamer fly patterns on the strip. Incredible aerial battles ensue with these fresh gargantuan freight trains!
