The secluded Muskegon River Lodge is ideally located along the finest steelhead runs.

The Muskegon River secluded, yet close - is located 45 minutes north of Grand Rapids, Michigan in Newaygo, Michigan. The Muskegon River banks are anchored by deep forests and its clear water courses over gravel bars into deep, dark runs and pools. With miles of its wide, expansive river to explore, our Muskegon River fly fishing guides put their clients into locations proven to hold fish by years of experience and knowledge of catches of the previous day. Our jet-powered boats enable our guides to move up and down the river at will, increasing opportunities for hook-ups.

March and April are prime months for steelhead in Michigan. These mighty fish are capable of extended runs and spectacular acrobatics at this time of year. The Muskegon River offers some of the finest fly fishing oportunities for steelhead to be found in the U.S. and we'd like to put you right in the middle of it!!!

For these trips at the Muskegon River Lodge we will be using Steve Kuieck and his staff of guides. The RiverQuest Charters guides are above all, lovers of fly fishing and gracious, enjoyable hosts. As a matter of fact, you will often find them on the river on their days off... fly fishing. They love to teach, and that is why they count it a special privilege to introduce people of any age, and with no prior fly fishing experience, to one of the great sports... their sport. For the more accomplished fly fisherman or fisherwoman, our Muskegon River fly fishing guides respect your knowledge and skills and will accordingly give you plenty of space to cast and fly fish in the manner to which you are accustomed. Although our guides seek to give all their clients something new to experience, they learn much about fly fishing, life, and the fish they pursue from their valued clients and friends.

When you're fly fishing with River Quest Charters and Mad River Outfitters on large Michigan trout streams like the Muskegon River, your guided fly fishing trip is comfortable and safe. Their clean, well jet-powered 17 and 20 foot Alumaweld and Alumacraft boats, feature environmentally friendly, ultra-low emissions engines, including Evinrude E-Tec, and enable River Quest Charters guides to cover miles of river quickly, putting you into prime fly fishing locations. Our jet boats are specially designed for fly fishing.

The boats feature flat decks for easy casting, bow mounted electric trolling motors for stealthy approaches, wide beams for stability and shallow water passage, and creature comforts such as upholstered seats and plenty of room to move about inside the boats. Indeed, your personal safety is paramount: River Quest guides are CPR/First Aid trained and certified and are licensed by the State of Michigan and the United States Coast Guard. As United States Coast Guard Captains, all our guides are thoroughly trained in safety procedures and boating operations. River Quest Charters boats are outfitted with safety equipment specified by the State of Michigan and the United States Coast Guard
