DNR FISHING REPORT    September 15, 2016

BIG MANISTEE RIVER:  Chinook and coho salmon have reached Tippy Dam in good numbers, but anglers are having
a hard time getting them to hit.  Anglers had slightly better success above the coffer dam on the Consumers Energy 
side with a mix of everything from spawn to crankbaits and spinners.  Fishing between High Bridge and Bear Creek has 
been slow with the exception of a few Kings caught out of the mouth of Pine Creek. The bite was steady
east of Bear Creek in the lower section.  Those anchored in the deeper holes and casting crankbaits did best
in the morning.   

Manistee:  Dredging continues in the harbor so boat anglers should be cautious around the equipment.  
Chinook salmon slowed but a few were still being caught in 50 to 70 feet.  Coho and lake trout have come 
into the same depths.  Chinook were caught in the channel.   

Manistee Lake:  Anglers were doing well catching a decent number of seven to nine inch bluegills and pumpkinseeds 
on crawlers and leaf worms.  Those trolling for salmon were limited as most are now fishing up in the river.
