  3. Stream Report Upper Manistee, Boardman Rivers - 5/15/16

    Boardman River

    The Boardman River is starting to warm up, despite the cold wintery weekend, and fish are beginning to eat. Streamer fishing is fair, and Hendricksons and black caddis are emerging daily. The North Branch and South Branch are warmer and brook trout are the easiest take for the early season. Lower sections like the Ranch, Garfield and Brown Bridge are also good choices right now. Early afternoons for the Hendrickson emergence, and evenings around 6pm for the spinnerfall. Black caddis #16-18 are heaviest from 2-5pm.

  4. Manistee River, Boardman River Stream Report - September 16, 2013

    The streamer bite is picking up with the cold temps. Attractors continue to work in the late afternoons as water temps try to rise. Tiny BWO's starting now too. Look for them along the banks where they emerge. Some large fish will hang on the banks sipping them on gray days.
