Muskegon River Winter Steelhead Trips
Steelhead begin to move into the Muskegon River in late September and through the Fall months just after the peak of migrating Chinook Salmon who are on their spawning runs. These Steelhead tend to sit below salmon redds awaiting the next arrival of salmon eggs which they gorge on as long as they are there.
These fish remain in the river through the winter months, with new fish arriving any time there is rainfall or a major snow event.
However, during the short cold days of winter, their reaction time slows. The net result is that you will need to present your offering slowly in order to give the fish the chance to eat. For some anglers, this means presenting a salmon egg fly pattern, or slowly rolling a fly along the bottom.
Winter trout trips
Winter is one of the best times of the year to catch good numbers of quality trout.
Plying riffles and runs with nymphs is a great way to break up the winter doldrums and enjoy great fishing and tranquility. These trips can be either half day or full day adventures, either way most anglers are pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fishing.
