Fish the Big Manistee River for Steelhead, Salmon, Trout & Walleye. Insured, USCG Licensed, DNR Inspected. All equipment provided. Fall Steelhead is the most exciting fishing experience on the Big Manistee. It is also the busiest time for us on the river. These fish usually start to show up around the first week of October. Feeding on the eggs of the recent salmon run, they are very chrome in color, hungry, aggressive, and put up the best fight of all fish to enter our river system. Our favorite method for hooking fall steelies is "bottom bouncing" with light spinning tackle. Once you experience fighting one of these "silver bullets" you will be hooked for life!
