Pere Marquette– low

Our salmon run was late this year but has finally peaked. We have good numbers of fish all over the gravels in the middle and upper river with some still waiting in the holes. Fishing is very good and should remain so for the next week or two. We’re starting to see a few steelhead around, but need rain before we get a big push. Matt Dunn

Manistee–  low

Good numbers of salmon below Tippy Dam and good numbers of steelhead as well.
