    Maybe next weeks north winds will send up a few past the dam. Especially after this rain on Sunday should be interesting mid week.if anything should be fish up close to pier heads.

    Warm & dry summer. High lake temperatures. Charter boats reporting catches of mostly lake trout. No signs of an early year, I'm thinking September for sure.

    I've been thinking the early runs were stocked salmon, later runs are the natural salmon. Since they quit stocking the early runs are weaker. I used to fish early September for a couple weeks, now I start late Sept and roll over into October. Early Sept is damn hot anyway, don't feel right salmon fishing in a tee shirt.
    I fish the Manistee, been fishing it since mid-80's and come up from Virginia.

    Best skein bite is after Labor Day. Fish can be had in August, but nothing like September. That’s been my experience with salmon. Early is better fished with cranks or hardware.
