Trout fishing has continued strong with abundant food throughout the river system. Rather than show the typical pictures of guests holding nice trout, I want to show you some pictures from some of my favorite summertime ventures. This is what it's all about in my book, quality time with my boys. And yes, the weekly fish fry has been wonderful.
Had the pleasure of taking a trout fishing trip with Don and Jeff the other day. The trout bite was only fair through the mid morning- lots of small fish with a few holdovers.
We were in search of some Muskegon monster browns when we happened upon a nice group of steelhead. Never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I suggested that we give them a try. The guys were game, picked up on a different tecnique, and here are some of the results. (In June no less)
A lesson that I've learned countless times, be versatile. The guys were hoping to catch Brown trout, but were willing to switch to steelhead. It became obvious that the steelhead were much more willing to feed than the trout, and it made for an active day.
Much more top water action lately as the waters have receded and warmed just a bit. With forcasted cooler temperatures, the rest of the month should continue to produce some excellent trout fishing. The grey drakes have been thick the past few nights. We're offering evening hatch specials(5 till dark $200) this month.
