Streamers & Smallmouth

Muskegon River Smallmouth Bass
Fished the Muskegon River for summer smallies this weekend.  Ended up exploring some new water in the lower river and making a long 10+ mile float.  Johnny boated fish of the day with this chunk of a smallmouth taping out at 19.5".  Most fish came on baitfish colored streamers with our hot fly being a white and grey murdich minnow.  Best water was the swifter outside bends that had deeper water and some boulders.  Also found fish in the flats among the downed timber.  Great way to spend a summer day, practice throwing streamers, and put a bend in the rod!

Teton Crest Trail & Cutthroat

Last week my wife and I hiked the 35 mile Teton Crest Trail in Wyoming for our wedding anniversary.  Adventure, outstanding scenery, and of course some trout fishing!  We started in Teton Village making a loop behind Death Canyon and the Teton Range.  5 days later we emerged at String Lake.  Really a great trail if you enjoy camping in the backcountry.
