Steelhead Season is underway on the Manistee River this fall. Water conditions are just about perfect , a few more fish would be nice but we are catching fish most everyday, some more than others, but a few really nice ones . No open days untill deer season , if the weather is half way decent I may do some fishing later in November.
Typically where I fish , about halfway between the dam and the lake the best fishing is late feb. thru March. In April we get some great fishing for dropbacks, post spawn fish returning to the lake. There is some spawning activity in the areas we fish, but most of the gravel is near the dam and so are the people!
