Big Manistee River Fishing Report – Friday, October 27th, 2017 

Big Manistee River fishing steelhead October 2017

The fall steelhead season is well underway and let me tell you it has been a month to remember!!!

Lots of big steelhead in the Big Manistee River this year, and good numbers of them!  It’s been one of the best fall seasons in ten years I would say. Drifting beads have been the ticket in a variety of colors. We just had a huge amount of rain this week and the water is up. There will be lots of fish around this November.

I recently had the pleasure of fishing with a old friend from school. He brought up 2 of his three boys. Now, I’ve been fishing with clients for 17 years.  And I’m here to tell you these kids were simply amazing anglers. More familiar with fishing equipment than a good percentage of adults I’ve fished with. They both landed big, beautiful, adult, dime bright steelhead.

Their first ones ever!

I was so proud if those boys I spent rest of a very busy Saturday on the river bragging to each boat I saw! So many positive sportsmen congratulating those young men. Made my season.

I have days open, let’s get in the water before winter hits.  It’s gonna be a great month to fish this November!
