Michigan Fishing Reports – Updated Steelhead Fishing Reports for Michigan’s Muskegon River, Pere Marquette, and Big Manistee. (231) 519-7348
Steelhead fishing is starting to kick into high gear! The Big Manistee and the Muskegon River are now both starting to get fishable numbers of Michigan Steelhead. King salmon are heavily spawning and salmon eggs make for easy meals for Fall Steelhead. Look for Steelhead to be most active behind the table top spawning flats with Kings on gravel. Both Trout and Steelhead actively feed on eggs and nymphs being spawning Chinook Salmon.
Most effective patterns for Steelhead have been Trout beads that resemble King Salmon eggs. Natural colored beads seem to be working the best lately with the clear water conditions. Spawn sacks, crank baits, and swung flies all work well for Steelhead during the fall months, Look for lots of chrome Steelhead entering the river during the next significate rain. The last week of October is always the best steelhead fishing of the year for the Muskegon River. Leaf season is also over so steelhead fishing is much easier now, most of the leaves have passed through.
