A great slow moving river, perfect for a kayak trip, or fishing. You'll see an abundance of wildlife!

The big Manistee river is world known for its trout fishing in the spring and its salmon fishing in the fall
But the steelhead are biting NOW
And when you have a successful day on the river you have an awesome meal

Very good fishing, canoeing & kayaking and hiking. A beautiful section of the North Country trail runs along the river through Manistee County.

The Big Manistee River is slower paced opposed to the Little manistee. Both are nice clean rivers for spending a day a float. Great photo ops and eagle sightings.
