Stream Report Upper Manistee, Boardman Rivers – 7/4/15

Happy Fourth of July!

Boardman River

Boardman River is fishing well and still trying to get on track with the hex. Lower water has had great fishing for hex as the big bugs have drawn large fish to the surface nights from 10:30pm-midnight. The upper water from the Forks to Keystone is just beginning to show some signs of night activity. Look for the hex (hexagenia limbata #4-6) spinners to arrive at dark while the emergences have been mixed around early evening and late night depending on the temperatures.
