Tippy Dam Crowds, Steelhead, and Salmon on Jigs, Octover 20, 2022

At the most popular spot on the Big Manistee River.  Very few people above the coffer, more below. 

Salmon were jumping and I foul hooked several while hanging beads or jigs under a bobber.  I caught one 9Lb king, fair hooked on a Big Hole Demon Pattern Jig.

Steelhead I got one 22 inch silver hen on a #6 Pink Head Olive Rubber Legs Jig pattern.  She made slashing runs and leaps.

Trout I briefly hooked about 6 hard shaking 12 inch brown trout on 8mm painted Yellow Glow Beads, only landed one of  those.
