Betsie River Salmon vs. Homestead Dam

Recommended Posts


My son and I made our way up to our favorite places this early fall, which includes the salmon fishing grounds near Frankfort and Manistee in Northern Michigan. We tried our luck at the piers, but only found warm water and fish-less stringers.

After a huge rain event the night before, I mentioned to my son that I bet the dam would hold a bounty of charging King Salmon. I guess I was right! Every Tom, Dick and Harry was there attempting to sink a hook or three into an energy laden Chinook Salmon. It was great fun to watch and photo.....no room to fish though. We will have to wait for next time, or at least not on a holiday weekend.
