After a chilly Spring, we are finally experiencing some real warmth.  The next few days are going to be in the upper 70s, which is fantastic news. Hatch activity is increasing steadily, and fishing has been exceptional. We are on the up and up!  Water levels are good, but still dirty in places after the rain last week.  Even though it was rising rapidly, last Thursday we decided to do a quick float down the Muskegon. Water was high, but visibility was decent. It actually looked really good, and seemingly great streamer conditions. High water, good stain, and partly cloudy....

Lots of rain lately. And snow. And any combination of the two. Typical weather for this time of year, but it seems reluctant to warm up. Thankfully the weather looks really nice next week, with temps in the mid 60's nearly everyday. It should improve everything; fish, bugs, plants, people's moods, etc etc.   The snowstorm on Sunday took the entire state by surprise. Most people were expecting a nice little dusting, but we ended up receiving a full on blizzard, with some places getting over 14". Pretty tough to deal with, especially when just last weekend it was 72...

Lots of steelhead spawning right now, and naturally, lots of people. Seems like every water type has been holding fish; holes, runs, trenches, gravel etc etc. Even though there are lots of visible fish spawning, it's guaranteed there are more around them you cannot see. It's fair to say the run is at peak right now. Not sure if there are more fish on the way, but safe to say the majority of the herd is here, doing their springtime gig. The incoming cold rain could change things drastically. It could possibly draw another wave of fish in, but more...

It's alarming how many people have mentioned the Birdbox Challenge lately. Please, for the love of God, do not attempt this! There have been dozens of reported car crashes and other various mishaps lately nationwide because of this movie. If you must attempt it in a drift boat, at the very least, make sure you are BELOW the sixth street dam. You will not make it! But seriously, do not attempt this...   Steelhead are scattered throughout our river systems, and sounds like more came up over the past few days. We haven't been out much lately, since we had a...

We are finally winding down from the holidays, and reflecting on the past year. What a blast! Fishing was spectacular, and we hope the same holds true for 2019. We had the privilege of meeting some awesome new people, and fishing with old friends. It was a great year, both on the water and in the shops. Thanks for all the support! We truly appreciate it! Lately, fishing has been surprisingly good. The weather over the past 2 weeks has been fairly "stable", with mild temps, decent rain, and light snow (in our neck of the woods anyway). Around the...
