Tailwater Charters

Discover the riches of Lake Michigan’s rich tributaries with Tailwater Charters. Based out of Newaygo, you’ll explore the Muskegon and Manistee Rivers as you go in search of tough-fighting Steelhead, Salmon, Trout, and Smallmouth Bass.

Whether looking to practice your fly fishing or spinning skills, you’ll have everything you need for a productive day with your dedicated captain. Captain Ross Swanson spent his whole childhood fishing these waterways, and hopes to show you the riches of his local habitat. Having guided since university, he knows just what makes a successful trip and will do whatever it takes to get you on the fish.

Up to 2 guests are welcome to join aboard his 17’ Stealthcraft jet boat for a fun day’s fishing. Spend anywhere from 4 hours to 10 hours on the water, getting your fish on against the prized fish. Capt. Ross will provide water and Gatorade aboard all trips to keep you hydrated and energized, with lunch also on full-day trips. Settle in for an all-round fishing experience and away you go!

Get ready for a thrilling day out, as each one of Steelhead, Salmon, Trout, and Smallmouth Bass will be sure to put up a fight to get off the end of your line. Prepare for an intense workout, enjoying the thrill of game fishing like never before on these productive waters.

Meet the Captain at a tackle store in town before following him, or hopping in with him to get to the boat ramp. All you need to do before coming aboard is grab your MI fishing license, let him know if you’d like him to bring his fly gear, and you’re good to go.

A native to the area, Captain Ross Swanson has been fishing since he was old enough to hold a rod. As a child, he'd run to the river after school every day to get on the water, picking up a passion for fly fishing in 9th grade. An avid angler to this day, he still spends as much time as possible on the water, and knows plenty about West Michigan's rivers and the synonymous lake. After guiding in Alaska during university, he decided to do it full-time in his home waters, and hopes to provide a local twist to give you a memorable trip.
