Over the last couple of days, Steelhead fishing has been very good below Croton Dam. Water levels have been prefect making for some good steelhead fishing, and some exceptionally great large Rainbow and Brown trout fishing. With increased insect life, this winter, trout have been quite a bit larger this year. (2/2)

We had a great day on the water today. Weather was finally nicer today, lower 40's felt wonderful!
Jo Jo and Misty had a great day on the water and landed a bunch of steelhead, and some very nice trout! We fly fished today and the steelhead were all landed of different nymphs, the trout all took egg patterns.
Water level is at 1870 cfs, and is very clear, hovering at 34 degrees. We should expect some very good fishing coming up with the projected warmer weather. Steelhead fishing should remain good.
I've had the great pleasure of centerpin float fishing with Dan and Tim for the past 7 days. We've certainly worked for fish over the last week but have definitely brought some great steelhead to the net. Pictured below are our four largest Steelhead. We've averaged 5-6 Steelhead per day, and many, many trout.
We've fished all sections of the river. Having our best luck in the middle to lower sections. Water levels have fluctuated often over the past week but is now a perfect level. 2800 cfs and very clear, 4'- 5' of visibility.
We fished Raven centerpin reels each day, with a variety of offerings, spawn sacks, beads, jigs and wax worms, all of which produced fish. Our best producer was small, chartreuse spawn sacks. River conditions and water levels are now perfect for Steelhead fishing. If your interested in learning centerpin fishing, now is a perfect time. Winter fishing should remain good over the next few weeks. Text Us >> (231) 519-7348

Fishing Has been very good over the past week or so. Good numbers of steelhead throughout the system with perfect water conditions. Middle sections of the Muskegon seem to be fishing the best but, no real concentrations of steelhead. The entire river has been fishing pretty well.
Averaging about one steelhead per hour with various techniques, floats and spawn producing the most fish.
Fly Fishing has also been productive with the recent, slightly higher water levels. Peach egg flies and salmon fry patterns seem to be fishing the best. Plenty of trout on nymphs and stone flies.
Water levels are medium to low, and super gin clear in the upper sections. Newaygo to Maple Island, the river has a slight stain and is looking perfect! Water temperature in 36 degrees. 2000 cfs. Enjoy the warmer weather this week, and the bright new steelhead that are entering the river! (231) 519-7348
