A slim report from me again for G.Haven/Muskegon. I don't have any boat info from either port.
Pier fisherman in G. Haven have been catching a very few steelhead using spawn as bait. Gizzard shad are around, so those could be used for bait, but usually not the bait of choice.
Anglers have just started to fish the pier in Muskegon. Also using spawn as bait. But, I haven't heard of any steelhead or kings being caught yet.
I don't have any Muskegon or Grand river info either.

Now that fall is here and the summer weather has finally arrived, it's a great time to go fishing. After the big storms last weekend the fish, including 2 - 3 yr old kings, steelhead and lake trout, have shown up and are ready to try to fatten up for the winter ahead.
Grand Haven/Muskegon---Salmon are scattered because of the water temps. Some kings and cohos are being caught while trolling around the pie rheads and in the basin at Muskegon. Most anglers seems to be having better luck out deeper. 90-120 and then 150-200+. The only consistency seems that fish are caught in the 30-45 down depth. Anglers are using J-plugs around the pier heads in colors of green, yellow, and chrome. Out deeper spoons, spinnies/flies, and meat rigs have been working. Green spoons and flies with white or UV spinnies and meat rigs are working best.
Pier fishing at both ports is slow. Anglers are using spawn, alewives, and casting spoons.
Anglers are still trolling or jigging in Muskegon lake, but that is slow too.
If you happen to see my wife around town, tell her I was right! The fact that it was about the run (I predicted it would happen now) and nothing that she cares about doesn't matter, I just want it to go on record that it happened.
Grand Haven/Muskegon-- Anglers are fishing in 40-80 FOW and 25-80 ft down in the morning and then the fish seem to move out to 70-80 FOW water later in the day. The spawning kings are starting to stage and Cohos are mixed in the group.
