The Gray Drake Salmon Runs

Muskegon, Manistee and St. Joseph Pacific Salmon

Today is: w  

Massive runs of wild Chinook and silver Coho salmon ascend these rivers from September through the peak of October. These fish typically range in the 10-15 pound class, with several approaching the 20-30 pound mark - with several 40 pound fish taken each season. Nymphing with Hex nymphs, green caddis and small egg patterns, these hard driving "freight trains" will perform aerial displays and fight for over an hour - truly big game fishing!

 

We have come to enjoy tremendously the early to mid-September season when the fresh salmon are pooled up in the deepest runs on the river. Here they are very aggressive in a pre-spawn mode and will crush large orange, black and chartreuse barred rabbit strip T.REX flies on the strip and swing. Incredible aerial battles ensue with these fresh gargantuan freight trains!
