Manistee River Report – Below Tippy Dam
August 21, 2020
The Manistee River below Tippy Dam is getting some kings moving in. The big north 20 knot wind we had is bringing some fish in. Because of that the smallmouth bite got tougher the end of last week.
To counter that Friday I fish the Hodenpyl Stretch above Red Bridge. The fishing wasn’t on fire but we managed some very nice fish like the on that Fynn is holding for his Dad, Mark. WE got fish to bite using Lapdancers and Chartruese and white Flash Dub Minnows. Both floating and sink tips got the job done.
The last few weeks whether fishing streamers or top water poppers it has been all about very aggressive strips or pull. Really move that fly and bass will come to it.
The phone is really ringing for fall salmon and steelhead, if you want to get out give Cherie a call at 231-228-7135 and get on the calendar.
