Muskegon River

The mighty Muskegon River is one of Michigan’s longest rivers and offers anglers a wide variety of fishing opportunities. From small brook trout in headwaters creeks to huge salmon in the lower river, the Muskegon has it all.

Our favorite section of the Muskgon is the 11 miles of tailwater below Croton Dam. This section supports healthy populations of rainbow and brown trout between 10 and 20 inches. Runs of king salmon in the fall and steelhead from fall to spring produce dynamite action. During summer, the river’s smallmouth bass provide great sport.
