We are offering “Hatch Masters” evening hatch trips. $250 5pm – 10pm.

Over the past few days, our main focus has been chasing trophy trout feeding around the spawning Red Horse Suckers in the upper Muskegon River. Big numbers of trout have been feeding on nymphs and sucker’s spawn. Trout fishing should remain excellent for the next several weeks.

Steamer fishing has also been great. Dry flies have been a bit slow so far. water temperatures are still on the cool side for good insect activity. There is still a lot of eggs, both sucker and steelhead, for trout to key in on.

Gray Drake and Sulphers with be the next big and up coming hatch. Early Jun – mid July.

Big Rainbow Trout have also been common during the last couple of outings. Trout have been feeding heavily on nymphs, sucker spawn, and Chinook salmon fry. (5/27)

Brown Trout are the most common this time of year however, there are also plenty of Rainbow trout to be had. Hatches usually bring nice Rainbow trout. (5/27)
