What We Catch PDF

Almost there

Depending on the time of year and water conditions we catch Chinook "King" Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Brown Trout and Lake Trout.  We start the season in May trolling the shoreline for Brown Trout .  The last three state record browns have been caught in the waters off Manistee County.  As the water warms and summer draws near, we move to deeper water catching

mixed bags of King Salmon, Lake Trout and Steelhead.  Depending on water conditions we we may move offshore (sometimes up to 20 miles) in pursuit of sky-rocketing steelhead. Mid summer through Labor Day means King Salmon here in Manistee. Kings can weigh in excess of 30 pounds and battling with one will leave your arms aching and your heart pounding.  We also catch Coho Salmon as they migrate north to their spawning grounds.  There is still plenty of fishing left after the mature salmon have migrated into the rivers.  Fall offers excellent opportunities for steelhead and younger salmon.
