Manistee River Conditions
The Manistee it self looks really good, has great clarity and color. It’s flowing Manistee River green right now. Self ice is around but mostly clear, still locked up close to Manistee but you can fish from Tippy Dam to Coho Bend pretty easily. Warm weather this weekend should open up more of the Manistee River. But next week more cold weather arrives.
Steelhead have been found in typical winter water, it wasn’t so much about depth lately but finding the correct speed. As we have been hitting Steelhead in 10 feet of water and 3 feet of water. The speed just had to be right.
We will continue to update the Manistee River Fishing Report on a weekly basis now, as next week looks like we have some good weather again. If your looking to book a Spring Steelhead trip now is the time to call, as Prime Dates are filling up. Would not surprise me in the least if we get a good push early based on how the fall went.
