Hello everyone, Thought I would start a thread to keep everyone up to date on the steelhead egg take at the Little Manistee Weir. The weir grates were put in on March 16th, so upstream fish passage has been blocked since then. We turned the pumps on this week, so fish have begun entering the facility. At last check there were maybe a couple hundred fish in the ponds. At this point, we're tentatively looking at the week of April 9th to start the egg take, but that will depend on how many fish we have on hand, and how ripe they are. Remember that the Little Manistee River is closed to fishing until April 1. At that time, it will open to fishing up to Spencer's Bridge. Above Spencer's Bridge stays closed to fishing until the last Saturday in April.
