Pike can be targeted in certain areas of the Manistee River all summer long. They are an aggressive fish and prefer large streamers or crank baits. Pike are a bonus that are primarily caught on our bass trips.
My friends and I have been coming to Michigan for a weekend (twice a year)(and a occasional summer trout trip) of fly fishing for over sixteen years. We began using Chris as one of our guides 16 years ago and we would never go back to anyone else. Our fly fishing trips have risen to a whole different level as far as diversity and excitement. Chris can fish areas no other guide can touch due to his skill and use of a drift boat and/or a river boat. We have had some truly phenomenal fishing days in water that gives other guides difficulty. I will never forget my trip one June, where I took my 6 year old on his first trout trip, and Chris went above and beyond teaching him the ways of the water, the fish, and how and what bugs live in the water. We’ve had days that we caught more fish than I could even count! Also, I have always enjoyed my trips with Chris, he does everything he can to make the trip a lasting memory no matter if it is Hot, Cold, Rainy, Foggy, Snowy, or all the above in the same weekend, and sometimes the same day! He will always put you on the Fish! Thank you Chris for all you do, you are a Great Guide and Good Friend. Slainte!
