There are very few salmon in the upper stretches of the river currently. I have heard reports that there are some in Muskegon Lake and the lower part of the river.
Smallmouth fishing is going good right now and should remain that way for a few more weeks. The Muskegon River is low and too warm to be chasing trout.
King Salmon and Fall steelhead are just around the corner so now is the tie to start planning your trip as days are filling up quickly!
I have not made it to the Muskegon River yet but I hear that it is fishing okay. The water temperature is 37 degrees; however, it will not be long before the fall/winter fish will be staging to spawn. I would focus on the deeper, slower water in the mornings; and if that is not working, then move up to some of the shallow gravel runs in known spawning areas. I should be out there next week sometime and I will have an updated report then.
