Muskegon: Boat anglers found Chinook salmon 30 to 90 feet down in 50 to 120 feet of water. Pier anglers caught a few freshwater drum while casting spoons. Blue and green spoons seemed to work well, along with white flasher-fly combinations. Make sure to check your lines often, as there is a good number of small Chinook salmon in the area!
