Salmon – Mid August to Early October
King and Coho salmon make their annual spawning migration into the Manistee River every fall. Starting in mid August, going through early October. Salmon range from 10 to 30 pounds and are an incredible game fish on rod and reel. We cast crank baits in early low-light time periods for these fish – Salmon are most active at dawn and dusk. I target fish in pools and runs, looking for the most fresh and active fish.
