You definitely wouldn’t know it with the weather lately but, right now we are finally heading into the peak of the Michigan Spring Steelhead season on the Muskegon River. Both the Big Manistee River below Tippy, and the Muskegon River below Croton dam are fishing rock star now for steelhead. Good numbers of both winter and spring steelhead are spawning. Water temperatures have finally hit the magic 40 degree mark. We’re starting to see a lot of fish on gravel.
Best techniques right now are bobbers and beads, micro jigs tipped with wax worms (Water is low and gin clear so small is the key) Small spawn sacks in natural colors ( White, orange, peach netting) And of coarse, chuck and duck fly fishing. Sight fishing has been very good with the lower, clear water. Fish have been spooky so light tippet, and smaller, dark flies have been working best. Michigan Fly Fishing Guides
