SJRVFF will be on the Muskegon River October 14th, 2017 for the annual salmon outing. Fighting salmon all morning will raise appetites, but Johnathon Savoy has you covered. Johnathon will be providing chicken and andouille gumbo, cooked in a dark brown roux with bell peppers, onions and garlic, served on top of white rice. Yum! If you can still fit into your waders after lunch, plan on fishing for another couple hours. The outing usually wraps up around 4PM, but there is always time for one last cast. Fish On!
