Some cooler weather the past week has confirmed that we are still in the month of March and despite Spring officially starting, we still had some cooler weather to contend with.
Without much precipitation lately, few fresh steelhead have moved into the Betsie and Manistee Rivers but the fish already in the river systems have been playing along pretty good most days. Fish have been in mixed water – deep holes and the gravel runs with pocket water intermixed as fish are beginning to get ready for their spring spawning.
With the forecast calling for some rain this weekend look for the water to rise with additional color and fresh fish a few days later.
