Stream Report Upper Manistee, Boardman Rivers – 8/30/15

August 30, 2015 • Stream Reports

Boardman River

The Boardman is fishing well. Hoppers, beetles, and ants are dominating the afternoons. Mousing is the tactic of choice nighttime from midnight to dawn. Some chinook salmon are now entering Grand Traverse Bay. Attractor fishing is very good middays. Attractor fishing on PMX, Purple Haze Parachutes, Ron’s Yellow Skunks and Chernobyl Ants are fooling some good fish afternoons.
