Manistee River Below Tippy Fishing Report

Sept 14th, 2014


The Salmon run is finally upon us here in Northern Michigan, and the weather is starting to follow suit as I had to break out the long underwear for the first time in months! Fish are inching their way up from the Lake and starting to show themselves in small numbers. It is by no means in full swing, but fish can be found here and there in pre-spawn staging areas and all over the place in log jams galore! These early fish are very aggresive to the streamer and can take your arm off in the process, so if you are looking for a challenge this Fall before the river gets to busy, give us a shout and book a day rippin big streamers for Kings!

See ya out there,

Jon S.
