Manistee River Fishing Report, March 19th 2019
The current river flow is 2400 c.f.s and the water temp as of this morning is 34.5 degrees.
Spring is here ! Finally after a long winter! The Manistee river has had a nice push of fresh steelhead over the last week with the river run off and rain we had. A good mix of winter hold over and silver spring fish are in the river system. Fish are spread throughout the river, and seem to be in slow ” winter water” still with cold water temps. I’ve been fishing primarily beads. “Brighter colors with the water color being stained”. Drifting under a float or bobber or traditional bottom bouncing. Steelhead spawn will also work. Steelhead buggers, black stonefly patterns and salmonfry minnow patterns also will be affective. I’m expecting a nice steelhead run. And from what I’ve seen the fish our healthy and big. Feel free to contact me for booking info or any other questions.
