(All year long, peak May thru July)
Fly Fire Guide Service has had the good fortune of taking anglers of all skill and experience levels on trout fishing charters in The Muskegon River. Available year round, the peak season for our trout fishing charters ranges from May thru July and then picks back up late August thru October.
One of the things the Muskegon River is renowned for is being a terrific place to fish for trout, as there is ample space to make a deft catch that you will not soon forget. Moreover, the Muskegon River is primed with riffles and gravel bottoms, making it a destination for novice and experienced fishermen alike.
Brown & Rainbow Trout
Anglers can expect to find Brown and Rainbow Trout in a wide range of sizes, often times measuring in between 12’’-18’’. Notably, some trout our clients have caught have measured in over 20’’, so you truly never know what could be in store for you in the Muskegon River when you fish with us!
Muskegon River Fly Fishing
The most popular and exciting way we catch trout is with dry flies. Fly Fire Guide Service prides itself on offering some of the best dry fly fishing on the river. It’s our specialty. This forum epitomizes why so many people love to fly fish; anglers attempt to hook a 20’’ trout with a diminutive dry fly on a light line, stalk the rise, and then are able to fight and watch the trout attack the fly on the surface. It is quite thrilling and it is a spectacle to behold.
In addition, we also catch trout through nymphing and steamer tips on a sinking line. Regardless of the technique you want to utilize to catch trout, we will help you be successful!
It’s important to note the best dry fishing for trout in the Muskegon River often takes place from May thru July, as that is when we most often see prolific hatches.
