(Drew & Dad Celebrating the Victory!)

Drew and his Dad (Gary) celebrating a well earned victory!  Ever since the DNR raised the legal limit on Muskegon river brown trout from 10″ to 15″ five years ago the brown trout population has started to explode with beauty’s like this one. 

We’ve hooked several river browns this fall in the 20+ inch class.  More large river browns than I can remember in years past which tells me the the brown trout population on the Muskegon river is growing in both size and numbers every year since the change was made.  Thank you Michigan DNR!

(Tale of the Tape!)

More steelhead and lake run browns continue to enter the river system as the cooler water temps are kick starting the fall steelhead run into full gear.
