Winter Steelhead Fishing on the Muskegon and Grand River

Steelhead Fishing has been good for us at Getting Bit Guide Service.  The Muskegon River and Grand River have been fishing good for Steelhead when the weather permits.  We have mainly been float fishing but plug fishing has been good when we have done that as well.  6th street dam area in Grand Rapids on the Grand River should be fishing good when the water drops if you are looking to shore fish, try some jigs and waxworms.  I still have some winter dates open for January and February.

Muskegon and Grand River Smallmouth Bass and Walleye Fishing

Summer Smallmouth action has been fantastic!  Since my last report I have been bouncing around here and there catching a variety of species including Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Atlantic Salmon, Whitefish, Herring, Pike, Steelhead, and more.  It has been a great Summer so far and we have put a lot of good sized fish in the boat.  By the looks of the fish coming out of Lake Michigan we should continue that trend throughout the rest of the year, the size of the Kings, Coho, and Steelhead have been really impressive.  When I see pictures of 30 plus lb Salmon and 20 lb Steelhead in the month of June that usually means that my tackle is going to take a beating come fall.  

If you want to get out this Summer for Smallmouth Bass we have been catching good numbers of fish everyday.  Smallmouth trips are a great way to get out and enjoy beautiful scenery and great fishing that we have here in Michigan.  Summer Smallmouth trips are a great way to get your kids out of the house, the action is usually steady and they are pound for pound one of the hardest fighting fish that swims in freshwater.  We have been catching some decent sized Pike while fishing for Smallmouth Bass, we had one a few trips back grab onto a bass that we were reeling in.  Walleye fishing has been good as well, most of the fish have been in that 15 to 19 inch range but we have seen a few pigs here and there.  We should have some great fishing for Smallmouth and Walleye well into September.

River fishing for Salmon is coming soon and I still have a few dates open but they are going fast.  I have heard of a few Kings entering the rivers over the past month but they are spread pretty thin for the most part.  I suspect that we will be seeing lower numbers of fish around again this year but there will be a chance at some really big fish.  

Skamania Steelhead are around as well.  The water temperatures are really high with these high 80 to 90 degree days we have had so I really have not messed around with them lately.  If you want to get out for these we should have some decent fishing once we see a cold front come through again.

Spring Steelhead Fishing on the Grand and Muskegon Rivers

Spring is here and fresh Steelhead are showing up daily.  I have mainly been fishing on the Muskegon River but have hit the Grand lately as well.  The Grand River has been pretty high and dirty over the past week or two and is starting to shape up good.  We are forecasted more rain so it could get pretty ugly again for the Grand.  6th street dam in Grand Rapids has a good mix of some fresh steelhead and suckers showing up.  The Muskegon has been fishing decent over the past couple of weeks for us, it seems like fresh fish have been trickling in.  We have seen some pretty good sized fish mixed in with the average size ones that we have been catching.  With a little bump in the water we should see a good push of fish and it will be game on.  It looks like we are forecasted a little cooler weather this week which is good, it should prolong our Steelhead season.  I have some dates later in April that I was holding off on booking so if you want to get out I have the 13th, 18th,19th, 21st, 22nd, 26th, and 27th open.

Muskegon River and Grand River Steelhead Fishing Report

Steelhead Fishing continues to be amazing for us on the Muskegon River and Grand River.  This warm weather we have been having has had good numbers of fish entering the rivers and the fish have been super charged jumping around and taking long line burning runs.  We are set up to have some great fishing throughout the winter on the Muskegon River.  We have been taking fish while float fishing, back bouncing, and plug fishing.  With the higher water last week I had a day where we shot up into Grand Rapids to the 6th street dam and fished and that was some fast and furious action.  The Muskegon River from the dam down to the lake has been fishing good.  

If you are looking for a gift idea for someone that likes to fish or likes to be outdoors I have gift certificates.  They can be used anytime throughout the year for my river trips,  Steelhead, Salmon, Smallmouth, etc., they are a great Christmas gift.  I still have a good number of January, February, March, and April dates open so help me fill them up and we can go and beat up on some fish.

Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing

Steelhead fishing has been good on our Muskegon River guide trips.  The recent rain brought in a few more fish and we are catching a mix of fresh and darker fish.  The Grand River still has a few fish moving through as well from what I hear, guys are mostly targeting them in Grand Rapids at the 6th street dam.  The Rogue river up near Rockford has been seeing some small pushes of fish lately and guys are catching fish anywhere from the dam down to the mouth of the Grand River.  I still have a few days that first week of May open, I have the 5th, 6th, and 7th open for anyone that wants to get out.  I will get some more pictures up when I get some more free time but here are a few.

Muskegon River and Grand River Steelhead Fishing Report

Steelhead fishing has been pretty good for us on the Grand River and Muskegon River.  We have been putting a decent number of Steelhead in the boat on all of our guide trips lately, it has been a good mix of darker winter fish and chrome spring run steelhead.  Float fishing with bags, beads, jigs, and rubber worms has been working well.  Plug fishing with plugs such as the new mag lip 3.0, hot n tots, and wiggle warts has been taking fish.  Bottom bouncing bait or wobble glos has caught steelhead as well.  The 6th street dam in Grand Rapids had been fishing great earlier this week but will probably be slowing down as the fish move upstream to spawn in the tributaries such as the Rogue River and others upstream of Grand Rapids.  The rivers are low, cold, and clear at the moment so look for the run to be another drawn out one this year.  We should have good fishing into mid May from what it looks like.  If you are looking to get out I still have some days in April and May to fill for fishing on the Muskegon River.  Below are a few pictures taken since my last update.

Grand River and Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing

Spring Steelheading has gotten off to a slower start than usual but we are still finding plenty of fish to play with.  The slow start should mean that we will have a later than usual run of Steelhead into our rivers.  The Grand River should fish well for the next few weeks, the Muskegon River should fish well into May again this year.  We have been catching a mix of chrome and wintered up steelhead over the past week, more chromers should be showing up daily.  We have been taking fish while float fishing, back bouncing, and plug fishing.  Guys fishing from the shores in Grand Rapids at the 6th street dam have been getting a few fish off from the wall and post office.  If you are looking to get out we should have some great fishing on our West Michigan rivers over the next month and a half and I have some open dates here and there throughout March, April, and the first part of May.  

Below are a few pictures taken this past week.

Muskegon River and Grand River Spring Steelhead Fishing

it is Mid March and Spring is here, the runs of Spring Steelhead should be showing up soon.  The Grand River is up pretty high and should be getting its first push of Spring fish soon.  They are catching a few fish at the 6th street dam in Grand Rapids but not may fresh fish yet.  The Muskegon is coming up a little and has a nice stain and hopefully some new fish will start showing up any day as well.  It sounds like a few fresh fish are sneaking into the Pere Marquette River but from the sounds of it the past couple of days have been tougher fishing up that way.  Float fishing, bottom bouncing, and plug fishing has been our productive methods lately for catching Steelhead and Brown Trout.  I still have some days left in March as well as April and May if you are looking to book a trip.  We should have some great Spring Steelheading for atleast the next 2 months so don't miss out.  Below are a few pictures taken since the last update.
