Big Manistee River:
Some fresh coho were caught. Steelhead numbers are decent especially for boat anglers fishing from High Bridge down. Beads, flies and crank baits were producing in the early morning. Spawn was not doing as well as artificial baits but anglers are still catching fish when drifting smaller sacs on the bottom. A few more lake trout were caught up near Tippy Dam when drifting beads.
