Juerg Schmid, Switzerland "Wunderkind" fly fisher , who spends his time between his home in Cleveland and his retreat house in Big Sky,Montana, fishing the Gallitan and Madison, put on a command performance on The Mighty Muskegon with steelhead.He had a "hot stick" and hit some hot, leaping chrome hens that smashed his bugger leeches.Tomorrow will be his lovely wife Pat's turn to show up Juerg.

River dropped big time today-3,460 cfs.Water temp 54 F. Saw some American March browns on the water and plenty of stone fly egg-laying females.Two excellent sized trout were working them hard along the wooded structure.
