Muskegon River and Grand River Steelhead Fishing Guide Trips

Steelhead fishing on the Grand River and Muskegon River has been good for us on our guide trips, we are catching good numbers on a daily basis.  We are mainly catching steelhead but the odd lake run brown trout has been gracing us as well.  I still have some dates open for this Fall/Winter so give me a call if you are looking to get out on a guided steelhead fishing trip.  We should have some good steelhead fishing throughout the winter into the spring so if you are going to be in Grand Rapids or around the area book a trip this winter.

Here are a few pictures from this past week.

Grand River and Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing

The Steelhead fishing has been good for us on the Grand River and Muskegon River the past few weeks.  There are still some King Salmon in the Muskegon River but the numbers are dropping fast.  The rain we just received over night should bring in some more fish and the cooler weather should help as well.  We will have some great fishing ahead of us so give me a call to book a fall/winter steelhead fishing guide trip.

If you want to get out next summer for some Atlantic Salmon fishing get a hold of me and we can talk over some dates and specifics.  While fishing Atlantic Salmon we usually catch Whitefish, Herring, and occasionally Steelhead and Walleye.  Dates are very limited so let me know ASAP.

If you are looking to book a King Salmon or Coho Salmon trip for next fall I am taking dates now as well.

Below are some happy clients and some great fish.

Big Manistee and Pere Marquette River King Salmon Fishing

King Salmon fishing has been picking up on the Pere Marquette and Big Manistee Rivers.  The run is not in full swing by any means but there have been enough fish around to keep it interesting.  We have been catching fish on crankbaits, bait, and plugs.  The Betsie river sounds like it has had the best numbers of fish around so far but the Betsie always recieves a good early run of Salmon.  The Pere Marquette and Big Manistee should pick up with more fish over the next couple of weeks.  At the moment I have September 4, 8, 9, 21, and 22 open and those are historically all great dates to get out.  I also have some October dates for the Muskegon and Grand RIvers for Salmon and Steelhead,  Late October, November, and December are excellent months for Steelhead so give me a call and book a great day of Steelhead fishing here in West Michigan.

Pere Marquette, Big Manistee, and Muskegon River King Salmon River Fishing Coming Soon!

There are a few King Salmon filtering in rivers such as the Pere Marquette, Big Manistee, Betsie, and a few others. I was out on August 15th scouting with a couple of buddies and we put one in the boat and missed one bite as well but did not see much yet.  The numbers should start increasing over the next 2 weeks.  The one we did land weighed over 19lbs and the fish we are catching out on Lake Michigan are looking thick and they are eating well so we should have our hands full when fighting them in the rivers.  I still have some days left for King Salmon fishing on the Pere Marquette and Big Manistee over the first 3 weeks of September as well as some days later on in the month and into October for the Muskegon, PM, and Grand Rivers.  If I am booked I have other guides that are available for some of the dates that I have filled as well.  We offer all different methods of catching King Salmon, whether you want to pitch crankbaits and hardware, float or bounce bait, jig for them in the lakes, toss streamers, we do it all.  If you would like to book a trip give me a call, text, or email 616-570-2946.

The Smallmouth Bass fishing has been great here in West Michigan.  I have not been out in about a week for Smallmouth but this hot weather will have the Smallmouth biting on the Muskegon River, Grand River, Kalamazoo, and other area rivers.  If you want to get out and have an action packed day on the river I will be offering Smallmouth trips through the month of August on my off days from lake and river King Salmon fishing.

Lake Michigan fishing has been picking up for big Kings.  We have been finding good numbers of Salmon on most of our charters out of Muskegon and I have been getting reports from Grand Haven north to Frankfort hearing good things.  We have been catching most of our Kings on meat rigs and plugs.  That 70 to 120 fow has been good with some fish taken inside of that early in the morning and at last light.  The next good cold front to move in should push a good number of Kings and Skamania Steelhead back into the piers and some more up into the rivers.

Smallmouth Bass, Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, King Salmon Michigan Fishing Report

Fishing has been good lately for a lot of species depending on where you go.  We have been catching Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout, Steelhead, and Smallmouth on the Muskegon River.  If you are looking to get out and throw some hardware on the Muskegon now is a good time to book a trip for that.  The Grand River and its tributaries have been fishing well for Smallmouth, Catfish, and a bunch of other species.  The Smallmouth Bass fishing should be heating up good as the river drops and warms up over the next few weeks.  We should have some good fishing all summer long if you are looking to get out and have a fun day floating down the river and catching these aggressive Smallies. Lake Michigan has been good to slow depending on the day for King Salmon, Lake Trout, and Steelhead.    Inland lake fishing has been good for Bluegills and Largemouth Bass.  Skamania Steelhead fishing is not too far off so give me a call if you would like to book a trip on the pier or on the rivers for them.  They are some of the best fighting fish of the year.  

Give me a call if you are looking to get out this summer, I will be working on Lake Michigan as well as the rivers and inland lakes.  If you are looking to book a trip this September or October for King Salmon on the Big Manistee, Pere Marquette, or Muskegon Rivers get a hold of me ASAP so I can get your date written in.  I will be starting my fall river trips that last week of August.

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.
