Upper Manistee River

The Upper Manistee if now catch and release only from CO612 to M115. Flies-Only water is from M72 to CCC Bridge. These regulations will continue until April 30, 2016. Fishing is fair on streamers mornings. Colder air temps will push brown trout to gravel soon enough. Tiny baetis #20-24 will come off early mornings, evenings, and cloudy days. Watch for bank feeders in the water along the edges. Attractors are still moving some fish middays as well.
