winter steel

Fresh Steelhead in the Muskegon river. This weekend proved to be an excellent Steelhead fishing weekend on the Muskegon river near Newaygo.

There seem to be Steelhead through out the river system I fished near Newaygo Mi and did very well I talked to fishing guides that fished near Croton Dam and Fishing guides that fished Bridgeton, Maple Island. We all did well.

As a matter of fact this week was a very good week. Seams that last thaw convinced some more steelhead to come up river. Why not give me a call book a fishing trip with me and I will buy you a motel room or dinner. dougie b 517 927 9678
