Manistee River Trout Fishing Report
October 5th, 2018
Manistee River Trout fishing report for early October is it’s time to break out the streamer rods and let the hunt begin again. With spring and fall providing the best streamer fishing of the season.
The small streamer bite has been productive with wedge heads, sparkle minnows, and nutcrackers have all produced as of late. Look for the streamer fishing to continue to be productive as we cool off and get more rain. More water we get the bigger the fly you an run, but water is still pretty clear and low in the Upper section of the Manistee River.
Sunny days will be slower, but cloudy days should give you plenty of chances. As water drops make sure to pack a floating line when throwing small streamers , as you will not always need a sink tip to get your fly down.
