(12/8) What's Working Best Right Now? Floats and spawn has been my bread and butter. We have been averaging 15-20 hook- ups on steelhead daily, 8 -10 landed each day with lots of fat and sassy trout as well. Drift fishing spawn along the bottom has been working well also. Drift fishing gives steelhead a different look and a slower presentation. It's also fun to be able to "Feel" the bite when fish pick up the spawn. Some hits have been really hard as water temperatures are still in the low 40's, warm for this time of
year. Fishing should continue to be great throughout the rest of the winter with these numbers of steelhead already in the River system.
(12/5) Muskegon River - Warmer weather ahead and really good steelhead fishing! We're excited about the upcoming forecast this week! It looks great for weather and Steelhead! If you ever wanted to catch good numbers of BIG Winter Steelhead, now is the time to go!
The BIG Manistee River is also fishing exceptionally well right now! It has just been the perfect storm for fall run steelhead on the Muskegon and Manistee River. Both rivers have been fishing exceptionally well - The huge size of these steelhead is just an added bonus - something that might be a trend, or something we may not see again in our lifetime, hard to say... Get out and fish!!!
