Muskegon brown trout

Norman caught this fine brown on a wet fly

May 28, 2016:  The Muskegon has dropped and is at a normal spring level with water temps in the upper 50’s.      Subsurface trout fishing opportunities are good right now while fishing streamers, wets, or nymphs.     The trout are concentrated around the spawning fish and in the slower water where the salmon parr are found.  Some caddis are hatching. Grey drakes and sulphur have been heavy in the evening hours.

I have added a new gallery of our best steelhead images from this winter.   In addition, a wildlife gallery from 2015/2016 was also added on 3/24. To view them, visit this page.

We continue to sell DVDs at Swingabigfly.com.  You can also visit the video links section of this site to see a trailer for ‘Striking Steel’, our latest DVD.   Also, check out the fly tying materials section–Many people have requested Australian Possum skins and they are now back in stock.      The specials page has some great deals.
