Manistee River, Michigan

Manistee River

The Manistee River is known as one of the best trout and salmon waters east of the Rockies. Originally filled to the brim with native Grayling (there's even a town with the namesake nearby), brown trout, King salmon and the ever-following steelhead now own the water. The gorgeous water stretches through the Huron Manistee National Forest to Tippy Dam where you'll find a packed crowd and experienced guides putting in each day of fall.
