Fishing Report: Big Manistee River & Surrounding Areas – April 23, 2024

Posted by on Apr 27, 2024 in Fishing Reports | No Comments

Spring is here!

Warm temperatures the last few weeks have really kicked things into high gear on the rivers and lakes. Steelhead fishing is winding down I expect a few more small pushes but for the most part they are done with their spawning run.
I’ve been turning my attention to resident brown trout and its been very good.
Water levels and temps have been excellent!


I’ve put some trophy fish to hand already this year. I have availability now till mid June. I recently purchased a new raft which does well on the rivers I’m fishing.
Smallmouth bass have started to get active as well on some of our backwaters and lakes. I offer fishing trips for them as well.
Take davantage of the nice conditions this month. Would love to have you on the river!
