In search of chrome with River Quest on the Muskegon

Andy and friend Andreas K from Germany traveled to the Muskegon River Lodge in search of steelhead Oct 25 and 26.  We fished with Captain Dave DeVries and Jay Allen of Riverquest Chaters -
I can't recommend the lodge or their guides highly enough!   The weather was perfect and fish were around.  Andreas got tight twice to smoking hot steelhead - only to learn that hooking and landing are different matters......

A great first exposure to be sure.  Andy continued his love/hate relationship with steelhead, having a picture of a nice resident brown to show for his efforts.  ( he decided not to take pictures of moldy salmon or the sucker he foul hooked...)

The river is in fine shape and the steelhead are definitely moving in and have started showing some interest in swung flies as the egg activity of spawning salmon starts to slow down....  

Check out the lodge on our new website under travel tab, Muskegon River Lodge and let us know if you have an interest in having us book a steelhead adventure that you will not soon forget!
