DNR FISHING REPORT    August 25, 2016

BIG MANISTEE RIVER:  Tippy Dam to High Bridge has started producing a few walleye for those trolling crank baits
in the deeper sections.  Chinook salmon are just starting to show up and a few were caught by those floating spawn.

Manistee:  Surface water temperatures were near 72 degrees.  Chinook and coho salmon were still being caught in 
70 to 150 feet.  A small number of steelhead and lake trout were also caught.  

Manistee Lake:  Chinook salmon are starting to trickle in.  The lake had a lot of fishing pressure for them but
catch rates were slow.  Anglers had the most success at the beginning of the channel from Lake Michigan and 
directly in front of the DNR Stronach boat launch.
