Manistee Means Big Kings


Manistee is world-renowned for it's Salmon and Trout Fishery.  Some of the largest King Salmon ever caught in Lake Michigan were caught from the port of Manistee!


Have you ever heard the reel screaming from a King Salmon or sky rocketing Steelhead Trout? How about a lazy day fishing with your family on a clear stream, inland lake or Lake Michigan? The fishing opportunities in Manistee are unbeatable for young and old alike. Numerous lakes, streams and rivers provide hours of excitement and anticipation.

Big Lake fishing for trophy King Salmon and Trout is World Class!! Miles of shoreline, lots of piers and river banks to fish from – it’s all here in Manistee County!

Manistee was the original planting site for our incredible Salmon fishery nearly 40 years ago and continues to maintain the strongest spawning runs of Salmon, and equally impressive Steelhead Trout runs. These runs are supplemented by the DNR through planting programs that have proven to maintain a healthy fishery.

Manistee County boasts one of the best documented catch per hour rates for fishing efforts in all the Great Lakes. Whatever species you're looking for - salmon, trout, walleye, pike, bass, pan fish - they're all here making Manistee County The Place To Be for Fishing and CATCHING!!!
