Upper Manistee River

Tip of the week 

Slightly warmer temps and some rain are helping the warmup, and water temps are slowly improving. Slow moving fish are beginning to get hungry and streamer anglers are starting to fool some larger fish.

Downtown Traverse City has a few steelhead coming now with the lake trout push and latent chinook and coho collecting at the Hall St. weir.

Seven-day forecast
