Recent rain will help, however water levels were still low. The fish spook easily in clear shallow waters, so target the deeper holes. Try light line with flies, small spoons and small jigs with spawn or wax worms.

The Manistee River has fair to good steelhead action with anglers fishing all the way up to Tippy Dam. Water levels are low and clear; so rain is needed at this point as we wait for the run to go into full swing.

Steelhead fishing is the main game now. Low water levels have hampered fall fishing but the rain last week did help. Fish can now be found throughout the river. Flies, leeches and crawlers worked best.

Salmon season is pretty much done as steelhead are now moving into the river. Until the water levels come up, fish the deeper holes with streamers. Rain in the forecast should help bring additional fish up into the river.

Salmon fishing continues but we are now on the downside as the fish spawn and deteriorate. A couple steelhead were caught in the lower stretches of the river, however rain is needed to bring more fish into the river.
