CHASING AUTUMN SILVER............AND SHEILA, THE IRISH STEELHEAD SLAYER!

It was a great week on the water with the Bauman brothers from Wisconsin and Indiana, John Murphy and of coarse the talented and magnificent fly angling goddess Sheila from Ireland and her husband Paul.
Excellent numbers of fall steelhead are coming in the Muskegon so far.......some of the biggest steelhead I've seen since 2006!
Sheila, who caught an enormous fall steelhead 5 years ago, tried her first crack at fall steelheading.....and boy did she and her husband fall put on a great show!, catching some awesome chrome silver steels.........congrats guys!!!!
River levels still low - 1,250 cfs . Th bumping of the water to 3,000 was in anticipation of the severe weather we had mid-week, but we got no significant rain. It was a good flush of water that brought some very nice chrome steelhead though.
