Manistee River Salmon Fishing Adventures in Michigan.
Located in North Western Michigan, the Big Manistee River is one of the most beautiful and productive rivers in Michigan. The Manistee is a large, broad river, very similar to the centrally located, Muskegon River.
The Manistee River is a mecca for early Season kings. Chinook Salmon ascend the Manistee River a solid month before most rivers in Michigan. Good numbers of Salmon can be caught as early as late July. By late August, the Big Manistee Salmon run is full swing!
Manistee River Guided Fly Fishing for Salmon on the fly. We also specialize in early King Salmon on Crankbaits! The Manistee and Muskegon Rivers have huge volumes of Salmon and Steelhead during the Fall Months.
When fishing the Manistee River we commonly go after Chinook, Pink, Atlantic, Coho, Skamania, Steelhead, and Trout during the fall months.
The Big Manistee River is also one of the few rivers in the area where anglers can target Coho Salmon as well as Chinook and Steelhead. This river also has a very nice population of resident Brown and Rainbow Trout.
During September, we guide the Manistee River for Salmon during fall season months for Trout, and Steelhead. The Manistee River trout fishing is also very good during September and October for resident trout behind salmon reds. The Manistee River excels as a fly fishing River for Chicago anglers wanting large Salmon. Salmon fly fishing on the Big Manistee Rivers is fantastic!
