Fishing Report: Big Manistee & Area Rivers – May 17, 2023

Posted by on May 26, 2023 in Fishing Reports | No Comments

It’s spring time in Northern Michigan & my trout season is well underway!

I had some very good trout fishing the last few weeks on a few of my local rivers, primarily using fishing lures the last few weeks. It has produced some very solid fish. We definitely could use some rain here in the near future. Right now the Manistee, Pine, and Little Manistee are all running low.

Fly fishing will really start going here soon and hatch fishing in the evenings will only get better with warmer evenings on the way.
Small mouth and pike fishing seems to be really good on the backwaters now as well.
I’m pretty well booked the end of this month but I have availability in June!
God bless,
