Upper Manistee River

Tip of the week 

Temps and hatches are now very good. Daily hatches of Hendricksons, stenonemas, sulfurs and black caddis are driving good numbers of feeders. Fishing dry flies with a black caddis or yellow stonefly dropper is good for the late morning. Afternoons will have a mix of mayfly and caddis activity. Look for spinnerfalls, stoneflies, and sulfurs late afternoons in the waning sunshine.
