Upper Manistee River

Tip of the week 

Much warmer temps continue this week. Slow moving fish and ice-free guides will give way to better conditions this week. Fish streamers slowly and change colors often. Swinging is a good method and thus marabou patterns will move more at a dead drift.

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.
