Manistee River Below Tippy Fishing Report


Dec 19th, 2014


Ron Y. with a fresh fish on the Big River, 12/19

With a small push of silver showing up in the river with a small mix of winter fish around too, fishing has started to be more and more consistent. Very nice to have the river cleaning up, and have belief that the fish that are here can see our flies.

With a slight stain in the river, you can still fish pretty big patterns. Big clown egg pattern continue to be the go to fly, in the brightest color combonations possible. Trying to draw as much attention to your fly as possible. With pink, chartruese, and steelhead orange combinations working the best.
