Fishing Report: Big Manistee River – August 21, 2022

Posted by on Aug 22, 2022 in Fishing Reports | No Comments

I’ve been concentrating my time fishing for king salmon the last week.

We did see a decent push of salmon recently. With the warmer river temp it seems like the best fishing is early before the air temp and sun gets high. The fish I’ve been able to tangle with are looking healthy and chrome. Love these fish this time of year! I’m running half days preferably right now until we get some cooler temps and the fish hole up a little better. Cooler night temps should help and any rain will bring in more fish. I have some mid week dates available and would love to get you on the river.

Also my fall steelhead dates are filling fast! Early November is fairly open now and that can be a great time to be on the river so get ahold of me asap to save a date for those fall steelhead.

God bless!
