Muskegon River

Updated: May 16, 2017  (9:30am)
River Level: 6.27 ft
Water Temp: 58° F
Wading Information: Wadable with care
Clarity: Clear

Fishing Information: The Muskegon is currently flowing 2870 cfs or 6.27 ft on the gauge.
 
The river has risen slightly but is still wadable with care.  Most of the fishing has been subsurface with nymphs, soft hackles, and streamers, but any day fish will begin looking towards sulphers and gray drakes, as well as caddis.

 

Fly Suggestions:
Streamers – both tandem and single, and fry patterns
Sulphers – emergers, duns, spinners  (size 16)
Caddis  (size 16)
Nymphs  (size 14-16)

Rogue River

Updated: May 16, 2017  (9am)
River Level: 4.63 ft 
Water Temp: 60° F
Wading Information: Wadable
Clarity: Clear

Fishing Information: The Rogue is flowing at 267 cfs and 4.63 height level.  

Last evening showers did not change the level or clarity of the river.  The Rogue is wadable, clear and fishing well.  Sulphers are hatching in the early evening and fish are looking for them.  Spinners are falling toward dusk.  If possible, stay till last light. Nymphs, soft hackles and streamers are catching fish in non-hatch times.

 

Fly Suggestions:
Hendricksons – duns & spinners  (size 14)
Sulphers – emergers, duns, spinners  (size 16)
Caddis  (size 16)
Nymphs  (size 14-16)

Water Temp: 60° F
Wading Information: Wadable
Clarity: Clear

Fishing Information: The Flat is at 4.21 height level. 

Like the other rivers in this area, the Flat is clear and wadable.  Smallmouth are feeding throughout the river on streamers.  Yellow and olive patterns seem to be the ticket. Now is the time to enjoy this catch and release opportunity.

 

Fly Suggestions:
Streamers in yellow & olive Hendricksons   (size 6-10)
