Muskegon River Steelhead March 23, 2011

warming up fingers 

Mansel w/ a nice one
Got out for a late afternoon fish.  Water was up good but clear and fishable.  Fish are certainly ascending the river daily and the river is poised for some great fishing. On the other hand, weather for the day was brutal.  One of the coldest on the river in a while. Winds were relentless and the air was damp.  I found it hard to believe how cold it was seeing that we have come through a pretty cold season, many days in the teens.  We fished the upper river, up and down from pine street.  The fish we hooked were on both clown eggs and ice minnows.  Water was on the rise during the time we were on the water which we felt affected the fishing quite a bit.  All in all it was a good day considering the weather and water conditions.
