Now is the time to fish the Pine, and she is gin clear! The boys did very well today fun fishing! Nymphing with Pat’s Rubber Legs and a dropper, hoppers, and streamers were all working! The fish were not picky! RJ even lost a 24 inch brown trout at the boat!

The Big Manistee is pretty warm, hovering around 71.5 temp, w/ 1675 cfs. The water is warm on our trout, try to fish early in the morning or in the evening hours to prevent trout kill. Pike and Small mouth have been the number one species caught this week, with Skamania showing up near the coffer. Don’t get too excited, they have been less impressed with anglers right now!

The Little Manistee has been a bit quiet this week. Terrestrials and nymphing is your best bet. A few Kings have been showing up, and reports from the Big Lake this year is leading us to believe the Salmon run is going to be stronger than years’ past!

The PM River is starting with the rubber leg bite, and rumors of a few kings are showing up!
