Big Manistee River Fishing Report: Late Summer 2017
The salmon run has started and late summer 2017 fishing has been a blast! This last week with the recent rainfall and wind has brought us some fresh king salmon into the river system. Our water temperature is in the upper sixties but with a few cold nights, I look to see that dropping.
In other news, the fish are huge this year. Reports of 30 lb. – plus fish and even a 41 lb. fish caught in the lake has really grabbed my attention! To think of hooking something like that in the river on light tackle is down right scary!!!!
Tight lines and god bless.
