Muskegon River Fishing Report-Croton, MI-July 15, 2015
The Muskegon river near Croton, MI is running a bit above average at this time due to heavy rains that came through northern Michigan recently.
We are amidst change on the Muskegon river, as we transition from trout fishing close to Croton dam, to warmwater species such as Smallmouth bass and Pike in several stretches of the river.
With both fly gear and light spin tackle, we fish both topwater poppers and “waking” flies or lures, as well as subsurface with streamers, diving lures and crayfish imitations.
This time of summer can provide some of the more leisurely fishing of the year, as most warm water species of fish we are pursuing are quite active during the day.
As water temperatures rise over the next week+, fishing will only improve.
Present water temperature hovering around the 70 degree mark.
