West Michigan Steelhead Fishing

Steelhead fishing around Michigan has been great.  The Grand River, Muskegon River, Big Manistee, and most of the smaller streams have been doing well for fresh fall lake run Rainbow Trout.  The fish are running a little larger this year due to the abundance of Alewive in Lake Michigan,  these are the healthiest fish I have seen in years and they are showing it while you are doing battle with them.  If you are looking for a true trophy sized Steelhead this is going to be the year to find it.  We have been catching most of our fish while float fishing lately but back bouncing and fishing plugs has produced as well when we have done it.  The rain that fell last night and what is coming today should bring in another pile of fish to play with.  November is my favorite month of the year to chase Steelhead, these fish are in prime shape, the water temperatures are perfect, and they are ready to beat up your tackle as they tear off down river cartwheeling through the air.  Give me a call if you would like to get out and enjoy some of the best fishing of the year.  Below are a few of the many Steelhead that we hace been catching.

Steelhead are here!

We have switched gears from King Salmon over to Steelhead this past week.  There are decent numbers of fish in most of the West Michigan Rivers such as the Grand River, Muskegon River, Rogue, White, PM, and Big Manistee if you know where to look.  This time of year eggs are hard to beat for bait but we have been taking good numbers of fish while working plugs as well.  I have some great dates open this month and next if you are looking to get out on a guide trip and enjoy some excellent Michigan Steelhead Fishing.

Pere Marquette River and Muskegon River King Salmon Fishing

Fishing for King Salmon has been good on the Pere Marquette River and Muskegon River.  We have been doing well on most days fishing bait and hardware.  Fishing for Kings should be good for a couple more weeks atleast and then the steelhead should be showing themselves in decent numbers as long as we get some cooler weather.  We should have some hog sized Steelhead this year with all of the baitfish that were out in the lake this year.  I still have a few days available for King Salmon and some great dates for Steelhead during October, November, and December so give me a call if you are looking to get out.

Pere Marquette River King Salmon Fishing

King Salmon fishing has been good most days on the Pere Marquette River.    We have been casting thundersticks and fishing bait.  Although we have not been doing huge numbers yet we have been catching good numbers and the fish have been large.  The fish seem to be spread throughout the river system pretty good this year.  I have been hearing that there are a good number of fish from the fly water down.  It did seem that the fish in the lower sections of the PM shot out of there with the rain from the other day but there have been some new ones filtering in to replace them.  I still have some early October dates for King Salmon open if anyone is looking to get out, I am also booking trips for October, November, December Steelhead right now.  If you have a date in mind email, text, or call me.

Here are a few pictures from the past week.

King Salmon on the Pere Marquette River

Sorry for the lack of reports but I have been out on the water just about everyday for the past month.  I am now on the river fishing for King Salmon and have been fishing the Pere Marquette over the past week.  Fishing has been ok some days and tough others when fishing crankbaits or bait.  There have been a decent number of fish around and they should start biting better with this cooler weather that we are having.  The fish are running big this season and landing them has not been easy, when hooked these fish are definately a handful.  If you are looking to get out for King Salmon this year I still have some dates available the first and second week of October, and then we will be getting into Steelhead season.  If you have some Steelhead dates in mind let me know asap so you can make sure you get out when you want to.

Michigan King Salmon River Fishing! Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing is Good!

We are getting close to starting up our river trips for King Salmon on the Pere Marquette River and Big Manistee River.  There are already a few Salmon that have moved in to the northern rivers but they are here one day and gone the next.  I still have a few days open the last week of August and the first week of September as well as a few other dates here and there in September and October.  I am also starting to book up my Steelhead fishing trips starting in Mid October so if you have a date in mind try to get a hold of me sooner than later.

Fish are big this year and we anticipate some King Salmon over 30lbs to see our net this fall as well as some larger than average Steelhead.

Fishing out on Lake Michigan has been pretty good for the most part.  Some days have been better than others for numbers of fish but we seem to catch fish around or over 20 lbs each trip.

Muskegon King Salmon Fishing

There have been some huge King Salmon being caught on Lake Michigan over the past few weeks.  We are definately going to have our hands full when they hit the rivers!  Over the past week we have boated King Salmon over 20lbs everyday with the largest of the week going 26.55 lbs, another King that weighed in over 29 lbs was caught out of Muskegon yesterday.  There have been some fish entering some of the rivers over the past couple of weeks, not in huge numbers but I have had some buddies finding a few here and there, I have not had much time away from our Lake Michigan charters so I have not had a chance to get into any myself.  If anyone is  looking to get out on the rivers for King Salmon I still have a few dates that last week of August and the first week of September, and a few scattered throughout September and October that are open yet.  I have a feeling that we will be putting some fish over 30lbs in the boat this fall.  Give me a call if you are looking to get out on the Manistee, Pere Marquette, Muskegon, and other rivers this fall for King Salmon.  Below are a few pictures from the past few days.

King Salmon Fishing out of Muskegon is good.

The Big Kings have shown up out of Muskegon in good numbers.  There are also a few fish starting to enter some of the rivers up north such as the Pere Marquette River, the Big Manistee River, the Little Manistee River, and Betsie River.  We will start up our river fishing guide trips on the Pere Marquette, Big Manistee, Muskegon, and other area rivers toward the end of August and if you want to get out give me a call asap as a lot of dates are already filled in.  I will be offering morning and afternoon thunderstick and bait fishing trips again this year so if you do not want to get up early then we can set you up for an afternoon trip.  The Smallmouth bass fishing on the Muskegon River and Grand River has been good and there are some Skamania being caught as well.  

The King Salmon are running bigger than they have in over a decade so give me a call and get in on some trophy sized King Salmon Fishing this Summer and Fall on Lake Michigan and or the rivers we guide on.

Lake Michigan King Salmon and River Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Fishing for King Salmon out of the port of Muskegon has picked up nicely for us.  We have been catching some good sized King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, and Lake Trout.  Fishing should remain good throughout the summer now.

Smallmouth Bass fishing has been good as well on area rivers such as the Grand River, Muskegon River, and Flat River.  

If you want to book a guided trip or lake Michigan Charter give me a call and we can set something up.

Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing

Fishing for King Salmon has been tough lately on Lake Michigan out of most of the Central West Michigan ports.  The fishing should pick up with the warmer weather forecasted.  We have still been picking at a few Salm0n, Steelhead, and Lake Trout but are really looking forward to the lake setting up and some better fishing ahead. 

There has been some great Bass fishing and some Skamania Steelhead action happening on our rivers and piers.

King Salmon River Fishing is not too far off, they should start entering some of the rivers in about another month and a half in decent numbers.  There have been some early runners over the past month in the Little Manistee River.  If you want to get out this Summer or Fall for Kings, Steelhead, Bass, etc. give me a call ASAP as my dates are filling up.
