Egg flies For Fall Steelhead
Clients often ask me...What are the best fly patterns for Fall Steelhead?
My answer: Eggs, Eggs, and eggs!
Steelhead crave Chinook Salmon roe (spawn) and it is without a doubt their food of choice during the fall months.

I have several favorites: (1) The Nuke egg . Fav. Color: Golden/ Egg halo
(2) Estaz Egg - Orange/ Peach halo
(3) Circus Clown egg.
Low water - Smaller- natural flies.
Higher water - Larger-brighter flies.

 White River Salmon _ Salmon fishing guides on the lower White River in Hesperia.

Located in Hesperia, Michigan, the White river is a hidden treasure among rivers! Located about 20 miles from Newaygo, The White is is nestled right between the Muskegon and the Pere Marquette Rivers.

This quaint little river is fairly shallow and easily waded. The bottom contour is similar to Au Sable or Pere Marquette with shallow gravel riffles with holes and runs in between. The White is generally waded; drift boating is difficult due to the normal low water as well as a lack of exit points for boats and other large vessels.. It is mostly suited to rafts and Wading. Michigan Fly Fishing Guides has private access to the river for taking out our drift boats. We generally guide the White when the Muskegon is too high or a new batch of chromers has just shown up!

Species in the White include Steelhead from November through May, resident Trout year-round but primarily May and June, Salmon in September and October. Other species include Walleye and white suckers.

Hatches on the White include Sulfurs, Gray Drake, Ephrons, and a plethora of Caddis and Stone flies! Stone flies emerge in late February and March. Primary hatches are in May, June , July, and August.

The White River includes many large resident Brown trout, Wild Steelhead, and Chinook Salmon. I also supports a large number of walleye in the lower sections near Whitehall - Montague and White Lake.
