Fishing Report: Big Manistee River – October 4, 2020

Posted by on Oct 5, 2020 in Fishing Reports | No Comments

Fall is most definitely here in Northern Michigan. The annual salmon season if fully underway.  Most of the salmon are on or around spawning gravel. With a few stragglers coming through the system from the lake. I’ve been targeting fall steelhead for the last few weeks.  Its been a pretty good few weeks at that!  I’ve been putting up consistent numbers last few weeks.  A good mix of steelhead have been caught size wise, so yeah it has been good!

Beads in various colors have worked well, like light roe and Oregon cheese. Spawn has also worked well. Bottom bouncing either spin gear or fly gear is the program. I am pretty well booked until early November, then I’ll have some openings and would love to have ya on-board this fall!
