Manistee River Report – Below Tippy Dam
November 15, 2022
The Manistee River below Tippy has dropped back down to 1630 CFS and the temperature is falling too. At the current air temps the water temperature will continue to fall dramatically.
Last week I swung every day. The swing bite was good especially on cloudy days or in the morning. Early in the week we had lots of sun so it was tough to get them to eat streamers. The number one streamer last week was olive with an orange ice dub head.
Top flies/beads have been beads in oranges, pinks and peach colors and steelhead buggers have also taken a few fish. Size 10mm was the ticket when the water came up.
The fish are spread out throughout the system with a good combination of bright, fresh fish along with some that are beginning to show a little color.
Good luck to all of the hunters today, shoot straight, be safe and have fun!
We still have some dates available if you want to get on the calendar. Call Cherie at 231-228-7135.
