Manistee Early July

Early July Manistee. Fishing is improving as we speak and with the prevailing south west winds it should continue on that pattern. Water is setting up well with good reports of kings beginning to be heard. A mid 30’s pound king was taken out of Manistee last week, and I’ve heard several reports of upper twenty pounders being cuught. Spoons and flasher/flies such as the 7 Fathoms, Super Dew, Ghost, Blue Maui and McKenna’s Magic.continue to dominate, however as the water continues to settle meat rigs and even plugs will also become effective.

Trout fishing is shaping up nicely with good numbers in the 20 to 22 line in 120 fow. Dreamweaver chrome Spin Doctors loaded with Dreamweaver whirly gigs dressed in lemon/lime, blue chrome and green ghost are doing well. Check out the video below for one of our more recent trips.  Be safe out there, and remember to take the kids fishing.
