The steelhead fishing has been incredible! We are seeing November numbers in October! The fish are running a lot larger than usual this year. If there ever was a year to chase chrome this is the year! There are also a good number of cohos in the river and the brown trout bite is picking up on egg and nymph patters. If you want a chance to catch the steelhead of a lifetime call us today! I hope to see some of you in my boat and behind a fish in some photos. -Steve Cornetet

Angie with her first king to the net one of many.
Leslie with a big fresh hen.
Lots of fresh fish in pools yet.
Lots of big kings this year.
Never too young to start salmon fishing. 10 year old Justin with his first but not last salmon.
Twelve year old Devin with a nice PM Coho.
Matt with a twenty six pound hen.
Larry with a chrome PM Coho. This fish almost jumped in the boat twice!
The fishing is still great for kings, and with more steelhead showing up daily its only going to get better. There are still a lot of fresh fish in pools and the spawning fish are at peak. This means lots of egg munching steelhead should be on the feed. If you have never been out for fall steelhead or fall salmon, you need to give it a try lots of fun and a beautiful scenery. Also gourmet lunch served river side. If you have kids they are never too young I love to take kids fishing. They are the future generation of our sport. I have a few open dates this week and also lots of prime steelhead dates in October and November so call today to get out on the water in search of chrome. -Steve Cornetet

I've been on both the pm and the big manistee this week, both are fishing very well. The big river has kings, kings, and more kings, from top to bottom, from side to side, its stuffed! There are also great steelhead numbers and it continues to grow. The pm salmon run is at peak spawning right now with steelhead numbers growing daily. Look to dark pockets behind spawning kings for browns and steelhead. Still a few prime October and a November dates available.
