Muskegon River Spring Steelhead Fishing

Steelhead Fishing has been awesome over the past few weeks on the Muskegon River.  We have been putting lots of fish into the boat on our guided steelhead fishing trips.  We have mainly been float fishing with spinning gear and centerpins.  I also fished the Grand River in Grand Rapids near the 6th street dam and did pretty well for May, we were into the double digits for a couple hours of fishing with a mix of dark and chrome drop backs and some dime bright fresh run fish.  The Rogue River has also been putting out some good fish lately from what I have been hearing.  The Muskegon River has been where we have mainly been and it has been producing large numbers of spawners, drop backs, and some fresh fish.  If you are looking to get out and try Centerpin fishing we have a brand new arsenal from Raven Tackle and we still have some openings on the 12th, 13th, and 14th.

Below is a sample of the fishing lately.

Spring Steelhead

As of today 4/14/14 the Grand River, Muskegon River, Rogue River, and White River are all pretty high and dirty.  They will probably be very tough to Steelhead fish for the next week or so.  The good thing is that most of them should be fishing good as they start to drop.  Before the floods we were catching fish while float fishing and plug fishing.  The Muskegon had not received many fresh Steelhead yet so that should change with the recent rains.  Some guides were already fishing gravel to spawning fish on the Muskegon River over the past week if that is your thing.  The Grand River in Grand Rapids near the 6th street dam was giving up a mix of fresh and darker winter fish, look for a bunch of fresh fish to shoot through with the flooded waters and fill into the smaller tributaries.  The White river sounded like it was fishing good last week for Steelhead, look for the dam in Hesperia to fish well as the water starts to drop.  The Rogue river as of a few days back was just starting to see a half way decent push of fresh fish so look for that to fish well as it drops.  Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River and other area rivers should be good late into May this year with the colder than average water temperatures.  I still have some late April and May dates available if you are looking to get out and enjoy some warmer weather Steelhead fishing.  We offer the use of Spinning, Centerpin, Fly, and Baitcasting rods and reels.

Spring Steelhead Fishing on the Grand River and Muskegon River

Spring Steelhead fishing is here!  We have been fishing the Grand River and Muskegon River since my last report and fishing has been good for us most days.  We are still seeing a mix of dark fish and fresher spring run fishing.  We should have a big push of chromers showing up over the next couple of weeks.  We have been float fishing with spinning gear and centerpins and doing well.  Drift fishing with spawn and wobble glos have also caught their share as well.  There have been a lot of guys fishing the shorelines up near 6th street dam in Grand Rapids doing well on steelhead.  The Rogue and White Rivers should be popping off soon as well for those of you looking to wade in.  I still have some dates available the week of the 20th and and 27th if you are looking to get out this Spring.  May should have some good fishing as well this year with how cold the water is and I have plenty of open days the first 2 weeks of May for the Muskegon River.

Below are a few from recently.

Winter Steelhead Fishing

Winter finally let up her grip a little this past week and the Steelhead fishing was fantastic.  We caught Steelhead using a variety of methods, float fishing with spawn and jigs, dropping back plugs, and bottom bouncing were all productive.  We have been catching a mixture of colored up fall holdover Steelhead and chrome fish that have not been in the system very long, a few nice Brown Trout have come to the net as well.  The wild life has been out in full force lately, we have seen numerous Bald Eagles everyday, lots of Deer, Raccoons,  a good variety of Waterfowl, etc..  It sounds like most of the smaller area streams are still frozen up pretty good but if you do not have a boat and are looking to get out and wade I hear that they are still catching good numbers of fish at the 6th street dam on the Grand River.  I know some guys that have been walking in near Croton Dam on the Muskegon River as well that have have been picking up a few fish as well on jigs and wax worms.     

Spring will be here soon so if you are looking to get out on the Muskegon River or Grand River give me a call to book your dates.  I still have a good number of dates open for February, March, April, and May open.  If you would rather wade in and fish we also offer walk in trips to the Rogue River and White River as well.  If you have a preferred method that you would like to learn let us know, if your looking to learn how to cast and use a Centerpin, back bounce, plug fish, etc. we can shorten that learning curve for you.

Here is a sample of the fish that we boated this past week.

West Michigan Steelhead

1/9/12 Steelhead fishing has been great around West Michigan for 2012!  The Muskegon River, Grand River, Rogue River, and just about any other river on the west side of Michigan has been treating us well.  There seems to still be a decent number of fresh fishing showing up to mix in with the darker fish.  With the crystal clear waters of some of the rivers that we have been fishing it has paid off running the lighter leaders while float fishing and swithing to jigs and bugs on occasion.  Give us a call and get in on the action!

Rogue River Fishing Guide - Steelhead, Trout, Smallmouth Bass

The Rogue River is a smaller sized stream just north of Grand Rapids.  This river receives good numbers of Steelhead and offers some classic Steelhead water to intercept them in.  The Rogue also receives a large number of planted Coho Salmon that return in the fall.  The Rogue has perfect water for Fly Fishing or Float Fishing and at times can provide some real big fish number days.  There are also some great trophy sized trout opportunities to be had on this river.  We offer Float trips on a raft that seats 2 and myself as well as walk in trips on this river throughout the year for Steelhead, Trout, Salmon, and Smallmouth.
