Upper Manistee River

Tip of the week 

A mix of isonychia bicolor, yellow stoneflies and light cahills are all over the water from 8:30-10:30pm. Few spinnerfalls in the cool temps this week. Streamer fishing mornings and attractor fishing is also fair.

Mousing is now the preferred late night tactic. Look for the hopper fishing to pick up with hot temps beginning this weekend.

Yellow stonefly patterns like yellow PMX #12 are fooling lots of fish.

Check with the store to get the latest conditions for wading the Upper Manistee this week.
