West Michigan Steelhead Fishing Guide Trips

Steelhead fishing here in West Michigan has been good for us this Winter and should continue to be so.  We have been seeing some Lake Run Brown Trout mixed in our catch as well.  We have been taking Steelhead and Brown Trout while fishing plugs, float fishing, and bottom bouncing.  I had a chance to get out and run some of the new Wordens Mag Lips 3.0 plugs and they look pretty good in the water, we did catch fish on them as well during the short time fishing them.  I have plenty of days open so give me a call and we can get out and catch some fish.  I have been getting calls for Peak Spring Steelhead Fishing as well so if you want to get out on the Grand River or Muskegon River this Spring get a hold of me ASAP so we can get you the day that you want.  If you are looking for a Grand Rapids 6th street dam report, guys are picking at a few fish up there while wading in or fishing the walls.  There is no way of getting a boat up there unless you put in at the dam, the river has been iced up down stream of town and there is no way to get up there as of right now.

Put an end to the cabin fever and book a trip.  This is a great time to get out and enjoy the great fishery and scenery we have here in Michigan.

Here are a few pics taken since my last update.

Winter Steelhead Fishing on the Grand and Muskegon Rivers

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and got out and caught a few Steelhead for the Holiday Season.  Steelhead fishing on the Grand River and Muskegon River has been good for us over the past few weeks.  We have been catching some nice Steelhead and Trout on my guide trips and while out playing around on my days off.  There does seem to be a few less fish around this year from normal but we are still putting up some pretty good numbers.  The water temps are getting down in the low 30s and the fish are in winter mode now.  A lot of the fish in the rivers have been caught or poked a few times so switching up your offerings and thinking outside of the box can bring a few more fish to hand, especially in those harder hit areas such as the 6th street dam in Grand Rapids or near the Croton dam on the Muskegon river.  

If you are looking to get out this Winter or Spring give me a call and I can get your preferred day or days in the books.  Winter is an awesome time to be out on the water, the steelhead and trout fishing and scenery is a great way to beat that cabin fever.  If you are worried about booking ahead of the time for Winter fishing I am pretty flexible in the Winter, if the weather is looking really cold or hazardous for driving I will give you the option of choosing a different day.  Getting to the river safely and having fun is the most important thing.  

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!

Grand River and Muskegon River Guided Fishing for Steelhead

Our guided steelhead fishing trips have been going good on the Muskegon and Grand Rivers.  We have been catching good numbers of fish everyday, it has been a good mix of fresh run fish and darker fall run steelhead.  Float fishing, bottom bouncing, and plugs have been putting fish into the boat.  It seems like the fish are pretty spread out in the river systems, the Muskegon has a good number of fish from Croton down to the lower stretches, the Grand has fish in the upper above the dam in Grand Rapids as well as in the lower below town.  I have heard some decent reports from guys that I know that fish the Kalamazoo, they have been doing well while fishing plugs.

If you are looking for a great Christmas idea we are offering our discounted Winter Steelhead fishing trips through February.  Our Winter trips are 4 or 6 hour trips and I provide a heater on the boat to keep your hands warmed up between fish.

Here are a few pictures that were taken since my last report.

West Michigan Steelhead Fishing

Well Fall Steelhead fishing is more like Winter Steelheading at the moment with the weather we are having.  We have been catching good numbers of adult Steelhead everyday and the snowy landscape has been pretty impressive as well.  The Muskegon River seems to have fish spread throughout the system, the Grand River has been fishing well upstream and downstream of Grand Rapids, the Kalamazoo has been doing well from Allegan down to Saugatuck, and the Pere Marquette has been doing well in most stretches as well.  I still have a good number of dates to fill in December if anyone wants to get out and enjoy some of the great Winter fishing that we have here in Michigan, the scenery is awesome as well this time of year.  If you are looking for a gift idea for a family member that likes to fish a gift certificate for a guided Steelhead fishing trip is a great idea.

Below are some of the fish we have boated the last few outings.

Michigan Steelhead Fishing

We have been doing good over the past few weeks on our Steelhead guide trips on the Grand River and Muskegon River.  I have heard good reports from the Pere Marquette River, Kalamazoo River, and Big Manistee as well from friends.  The Steelhead have been full of piss and vinegar lately and we have caught them while Plug Fishing, Float Fishing, Bottom Bouncing, etc..  Guys wading in at 6th street dam in Grand Rapids have been catching fresh fish daily and the upper river from the sounds of it has been good from the fish that have been passing through.  I have a few dates open later in November as well as a good number of dates throughout December if you are looking to get out.  I do start my Winter Steelhead Guide rates as of December 10th for the Muskegon River and Grand River and the fishing is usually pretty good throughout the Winter months.  If you are looking to book a Spring Steelhead fishing trip this year get with me ASAP so you can get the date that you prefer.  

Here are a few Steelhead pictures from lately.

Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing Grand River Steelhead Fishing

Steelhead fishing on the Muskegon River and Grand River has been decent to good for us over the past couple of weeks on my guide trips.  King Salmon are still around with some chrome ones still entering the rivers but we are pretty much done targeting them at this point.  The Muskegon could use a little more water as it is running pretty low and clear, the Grand River has been running on the high side this fall so far.  They are catching a few steelhead from the sounds of it down at 6th street dam in Grand Rapids and up near Croton Dam near Newaygo wading in.  Give me a call if you would like to get out this fall or winter for some guided steelheading, I still have a few prime November dates as well as some great dates in December.  We offer Spinning, Baitcasting, or Centerpins for float fishing.  We use a variety of techniques and encourage newbies to the sport to come out.

Muskegon River Steelhead Fishing

It feels good to be fishing for Steelhead instead of King Salmon after a month and a half of daily Salmon guide trips.  There are still numbers of King Salmon around but the amount of biters has dwindled.  Over the past week and a half rivers such as the Grand River, Muskegon River, and Pere Marquette River have received a few more Steelhead and with the rain forecasted for tomorrow the 14th we should see a good push of Steelhead in all of the West Michigan rivers.  The brown trout have been biting good as well with the eggs flying around.  We have been mainly float fishing lately but we have taken a few fish plugging and bottom bouncing as well.  Give me a call if you want to get out, I still have a couple of days in October, November, and December open.  It is never too early to book your Winter or Spring Steelheading trips either.

Here are a few pictures

Michigan King Salmon and Steelhead Fishing

The King Salmon run has been a slow trickle of fish in most of the rivers.  We have been on the Muskegon River, Pere Marquette River, Big Manistee, and Grand River over the past couple of weeks and the number of Salmon around has been lower than years past.  We have been landing fish everyday but working a little harder for them.  The good news is that there are Steelhead starting to show up and we have found a few of them lately to play with.  I will probably fish Kings for another couple weeks and then switch over to Steelhead fishing unless someone wants to do a late King Salmon trip later in October.  I still have a few dates left in October, November, and December for Steelhead Fishing.  The ones that I have seen this year all look very healthy in size.  If you want to get out this fall and enjoy a day of Steelhead fishing on one of our West Michigan Rivers give me a call.

Pere Marquette River, Big Manistee River, Muskegon River, Grand River Salmon and Steelhead Fishing

Sorry for the lack of Salmon fishing reports but I have been busy on the rivers.  King Salmon fishing on the Pere Marquette, Big Manistee, Muskegon, and Grand had a slow start but are starting to pick up.  We have been catching a mix of darker fish and fresher fish everyday now.  The numbers of Salmon entering the rivers this year are down from years past but hopefully that means that there are a lot to come yet.  We boated our first fall run Steelhead of year today, that was a pleasant surprise after seeing nothing but Salmon lately.  I will be fishing Kings for a few more weeks and then will be doing Steelhead if anyone is looking to get out for those.  I have a few October dates left and some great November and December dates left for Steelhead.  I heard that the Grand River got a good push of Coho with some Kings, Steelhead, and Brown Trout mixed in.  The Muskegon River has a few Kings running around but the fishing has been spotty from what I have heard.  Get with me if you are looking to take a trip this fall or winter for Steelhead as we should see some good sized fish this year again.

Here are a few pics from the past few weeks.  I will get more up when I get some more free time.
