Fishing Salmon below Tippy Dam

Manistee River below Tippy Dam

Hello fishing friends,

I have just returned from Anglers Alibi in Alaska. What an amazing summer it was! It was a year of the rainbow trout. Our salmon fishing was a bunch of fun as always. The rainbow fishing was as good as I have seen in a long time! Great numbers of fish and some monsters had been caught.

Now back to the Manistee River below Tippy Dam. The Manistee River looks real nice. The Salmon fishing has been fair to medium. Good amounts of salmon are entering the river. More fish entering the drainage everyday. Look for the kings holding in the deep slow pools. Slow holding water is key early season. Crank baits and steamers are great choices for this time of year. With the water cooling and the salmon getting ready to spawn the fish should start to transition to the shallower runs. Holding water in and around the gravel stretches will start to pay off as the water temps drop. 

With the fall Weather on the way it’s a great time to be outside and fishing. Trees are starting to change, eagles are flying and the salmon migration is in full swing. It’s time to feel the big pull of the king!
