Catching steelhead thru mid-June, pro-longed cooler water temps heading into July, epic gray drake hatches…..these are just some of the very real, very positive effects from the long cold winter we suffered thru. This past Polar Vortex continues to extend the life of our trout fishing on the Muskegon by maintaining cooler water temps. Streamers and nymphs continue to be the recent weapons of choice despite the growing emergence of caddis flies in the upper stretches, cahill’s and iso’s (mayflies) in the lower.
Despite the hundreds of tubers choking the river system, Ron form Chicago got the job done with a really nice brown trout taken with a nymph.
Special thinks to Matt Supinski owner of the Gray Drake Lodge for hosting the trip.
