Jeff Segard and some of his sub's joined Don, Dave, and myself today for a sunny but tougher day of salmon fishing. Salmon numbers are plentiful in select locations but the gorgeous weather is stalling the movement of new fish. To say that some stretches...

Today was tough fishing for us. We covered a lot of river, hooking fish in most of the places we stopped (except for some notable "tackle shop" spots), but landing only two, the largest of which was a jack Chinook! The other, though, was a...

John Sommerdyke and company Jerry, Mike, and Don Vroon joined Dave and I for a beautiful sunny day on the Manistee. Salmon fishing was up to expectations today as the guys left with soar arms. John Sommerdyke was top dog with an 19lbs hen chinook...

Consistent with our fishing pattern of late, we started slowly today, but caught fire by 10:30 with hookups coming fast and furious for Dave and his two fine sons, Ross and Ryan. It became so crazy I literally had to call "Time Out!"...

Scott Misaad and his father-in-law Sandy joined me today on the Manistee. Fishing was less than ideal this morning in the lower light conditions as the fish have found comfort in the higher water flows in areas that you would otherwise not fish. Once the...

Although the Manistee drainage didn't receive the deluge southern Michigan did last weekend, the river is up over its flow of last week. Through the day, it continued to rise, which scattered the fish and inexplicably didn't seem to bring up significant numbers of...

Areas down state recieved heavy rain today while we on the Manistee River had a good soaking. Salmon are sure to respond to the added flow. I would not expect the river to go through any major transformation from this rain but we need to...

Bill lettinga, Charlie Booth, and father-son combo Bob and Aidan Brady joined Dave and I for a day of salmon fishing on the Manistee River. Traffic on the water was very light today as people have spread out throughout the entire river system. Salmon numbers...

Today, I had the pleasure of hosting Jeff and Kyle for a day of Manistee River fly fishing for Chinook salmon. Jeff and Kyle are an absolute delight to guide, and we had our usual loads of laughs and thoughtful conversation. The fish...

After receiving much needed rain two days ago the salmon numbers have increased dramatically. However the catch rates have not yet caught up with the numbers of fish. It would seem (my opinion) that the fish are slow to respond in the still warm river...
