Good number of Michigan Fall Steelhead on the Muskegon River. Not a whole lot going on for Smallmouth Bass on the Muskegon River, however, Steelhead fishing has been excellent!! November is the best time for Fall Steelhead.
A good selection of trout beads, small spawn sacks, and Salmon beads, all working well. Natural colors, as water has been very low and clear. Flourocarbon leaders, a bit light line, and a smaller presentation has been key. Look for Steelhead fishing to continue to remain strong over the next month or so. Big Fish, and lots of em!
We plan on guiding the Muskegon River through September 3rd. After that, we will be on the Lower Pere Marquette River for Fall King Salmon. We start Salmon Salmon on September 3rd on the Pere Marquette River. Manistee River Salmon Fishing below Tippy Dam will begin on September 23rd. We’re really excited about the size of Salmon this year!! They’re huge! Most Salmon this year have been 18 – 25 lbs this year! Make Salmon Reservations Now!!
Best Dates for Michigan Salmon Fishing are September 3rd through November 1st. Late October is peak for Manistee King Salmon. Coho Salmon on the Big Manistee River Tend to go a little later, October and November.
