Get Down With It!

Get Down With It!

This brown trout struck the submerged dry fly just below the water column at the end of the drift. More times than not, trout follow the fly all the way to the end of your drift when your fly line straightens out just below the water surface behind you.

Dry Fly Browns!

Dry Fly Browns!

This nice brown struck the dry fly in the middle of a bright sunny day. Dry fly fishing on the Muskegon has been picking up despite the river not wanting to let go of the slightly high flows. Caddis, sulphur, and drake hatches are in full swing throughout the river system. post by: jon fortuna Continue Reading

Back In Steel!

Back In Steel!

Here’s Greg from Big Rapids, Mi with nice chrome steelhead that slammed a leach pattern. Steelhead fishing has been good as water levels start to come down from an excess of flow from last week.
