Upper Manistee River

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Streamer fishing mornings is best to start. Then switch to a dry line and long 5X leader. with 6X tippet. (You'll need 6x when the black caddis, mahoganies, and sulfurs come.) Hendricksons as water temp hits 53 degrees in the early afternoons. Black caddis (#16) fishing has been very good. Mahoganies #16 are moving the best fish most regularly this week. They will come early afternoons. Hendrickson spinners will come with the warmer air in the evenings along with the sulfurs and mahogany spinners.
