Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing Report – (231) 750-0673


Welcome Spring Steelhead anglers – April is upon us, finding warmer weather and great Steelhead fishing.  Water is low and clear, making for good but stealthy Steelhead fishing. Muskegon River is now starting to get good numbers of Spring Steelhead moving throughout the river system.  Water levels have been consistant and clear, with good clarity. Look for Steelhead fishing to remain good during the rest of April, and early May.

A good selection of trout beads, small spawn sacks, and Salmon egg 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.  Small jigs and wax worms are also very good during March.  Black jigs are exceptionally good, due to the large amounts of winter stone flies in the river system.  Black Stone flies are a key, and major food source for Michigan,  Spring Steelhead. 

Look for Steelhead fishing to continue to remain strong over the next month or so.  Big Fish, and lots of em!  March and April offer excellent Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River.

Northern Pike Michigan Fishing
Hot and Humid weather and the Muskegon River Smallmouth Bass have been on fire!! Top water Smallie action has been really good over the past several weeks.  Summer fishing is in full swing.  Right now we are guiding for Smallmouth Bass, Trout, Walleye, and Pike.  I would consider fishing excellent at this time. Smalllmouth Bass fishing is really good right now.  I also bought a bunch of new gear for Smallmouth fishing so all brand new stuff for the Smallmouth trips on the Muskegon and Manistee Rivers. Make a Fishing Reservation Today!!
