DNR FISHING REPORT    June 23, 2016

BIG MANISTEE RIVER:  Skamania, the summer run steelhead have been moving into the area near Tippy Dam.  
Anglers are picking up large fish 10 pounds or more in the early morning between 5-8am with worms, spawn, or 
fresh shrimp.  Sub-legal brown trout and rock bass continue to attract anglers of all ages to the area between
Tippy Dam and the Sawdust Hole.

MANISTEE:  A 25-pound Chinook salmon was caught 35 miles across the lake in Wisconsin waters.  Lake trout fishing
is really good north of the harbor in 80 to 100 feet.  Most of the Chinook salmon that were caught were small.  
Steelhead are starting to show up and most were caught as deep as 500 feet.  A couple brown trout and steelhead
were caught off the pier.    

MANISTEE LAKE: The recent increase in water temperatures had the fish moving deeper than usual.  Some bigger pike 
were caught on spinners in seven to 15 feet.  Anglers are getting decent catches of rock bass but those targeting 
bluegills found the action to be hit-or-miss.  The mayfly hatch was in full bloom.
