Manistee Area Fishing Report

June 6th, 2024

6-1-24 Manistee area fishing report.
Bluegill and brown trout.
Bluegill fishing has picked up tremendously in the last week or so with the consistent warmer temps. Majority of Gills have slid up into the shallows on harder bottoms to make beds. The Fish that are up shallow are still holding eggs. We also found some in deeper water around 10-12 feet that haven’t yet bad it up behind weed beds or to the harder bottoms. Tactics included in catching these fish have been floats (slip and stationary) with worms and wax-worms. We also caught some throwing dry flies and subsurface flys.

Brown trout fishing in Michigans Northwest tributaries has been really productive. We have been targeting all types of water from slow and deep to fast with gravel. Throwing original rapala floaters, husky jerks, x-raps, and spinners have all produced good fish and lots of them lately. With the warmer weather coming up I only expect it to get better and better.

We have dates available for bluegill trips or brown trout trips. We have this weekend May 31st, June 1st, and 2nd available. Along with free fishing weekend June 8th and 9th.
Bluegill trips $200 for 4 hours or $350 for 6 hours 1-3 people.
