Fall Steelhead Fishing Report

 

Fall Steelhead Fishing Report

Spring Steelhead Fishing Report – (231) 519-7348

Michigan Steelhead Fishing – The upper sections of the Muskegon River near the Croton Dam to Pine Street Launch have been fishing very for steelhead. Spawning is in full swing right now with lots of steelhead visible and on gravel. Sight fly fishing for steelhead has been outstanding! Vicious strikes while watching the steelhead take the fly, has made for some heart pounding action!

King Salmon fry patterns, stone flies, and green caddis, have all been working well for bright chrome Michigan Steelhead. Steelhead begin to key on stone flies. Stone flies and salmon fry are major food sources for both steelhead, brown trout, and resident rainbow trout. Salmon smolt also feed well on stone flies.

Bead fishing has also been very good. Both 8mm and 10mm trout beads are fishing well this time of year. Natural colors, mostly orange, and peach have been fishing well. Most productive techniques have been bead fishing on light spinning tackle. Rolling spawn sacks along the bottom, or jigs and wax worms under a float (bobber fishing).

Fly fishing has also been very good for Muskegon River Steelhead. Drifting eggs and nymphs along the bottom has been producing some nice steelhead and brown trout.
