9/17/08

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!"...

9/17/08 Manistee River

Today I had the pleasure of enjoying a fine early fall day with Ken Riley from Lake Ann Camp and David Murdock & Scott Morter from Cornerstone University. The day was perfect, good company, perfect weather, and low fishing pressure. It seemed that the fish...

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...

Chet Babcock and I spent the day fishing the manistee river for salmon, and most of the salmon we hooked spent the day finding logs and stumps to make our day fun and exciting. Don Graham...

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...
