Michigan Salmon Fly Fishing Reports for the Big Manistee River, Betsie, and Pere Marquette – Flies Only Section.
We’re starting to see good numbers of bright King Salmon on the Lower Pere Marquette River between Indian Bridge and Custer. Lower stretches of the PM have been fishing the best with new fish moving through daily.
Betsie River below the HomeStead Dam has also been fly fishing well. Best flies have been dark nymphs, Stone flies, Green Caddis, and small eggs patterns. Streamers also fish well during the morning.
Manistee River below Tippy Day has also been great! Big numbers of King salmon below Tippy Day to High Bridge. Saw Dust Hole and Suicide bend both have good numbers as well. Beginning to see Michigan Salmon, Skamania Steelhead, Fall Steelhead, and Coho Salmon as well.
