Manistee River Trout fishing
Upper Manistee River Report
I fished the Upper Manistee Monday and Tuesday. The water is a little high but has a nice tannic color. Day one down below Sharon it fished slow. Only saw a half dozen fish and landed one small one. Day two we fished much higher up river and lit them up. We only used one fly, The Closer, a new fly I’ve been working on this season. We used olive and white, landed a lot of fish and had a great day!
I saw some evidence of the beginning of the spawn. Please don’t harass those fish or wade on the Redds. We need all the reproduction we can get!
