Fishing Report

Fishing Report! Summer fun!

Salmon are starting to show up in the lower Big Manistee and the Little Manistee, but in small numbers. Streamers are effective when looking for these aggressive fish and are able to cover more water. Currently the morning hours are the best time to fish. Water temps are high, and the water levels are low. The Big Manistee water temperature is currently is 73 degrees which can be considered as trout kill temp, and the flow is 1480. The Pine River is nymphing well and hoppers have been day to day. The PM reached 71 degrees today and should be considered a no-go unless the wee-hours of the morning.

Our guides are available and our gear is ready to go, give us a call. Check out the fishing report at D Loop Outfitters, http//
