Muskegon River Fishing Report – December 28, 2022 – Newaygo, Michigan

1 min read
Steve with a nice one !!

The Muskegon river is running a bit below “average” flows for this time of December, but did come up a bit over the last day+. River temperatures are in the 34-35 degree range and both resident Brown and Rainbow trout, along with migratory steelhead are there to be caught for those willing to fish through promising pools and runs where fish will be this time of year.

With both fly fishing and conventional equipment, we can target those likely holding spots for fish who have acclimated to winter like river conditions. With lower river temperatures, fish can be a bit lethargic during extreme weather shifts, but they are there and do need to eat !

With some very warm weather coming through in the days ahead, I’m sure that we’ll see a rise in river levels as snow melts up and down the entire Muskegon river watershed.

I will only be doing a select number of half day trips in the next 3 weeks, the I will have several weeks of post op recovery from a scheduled surgery. If any want to try and get out for a half day in that time frame, it would be best to call or email me sooner than later.

Looking forward to the spring season ahead, it will be upon us before we know it !
