Come to Manistee River Outfitters for your outdoor experience. We are Permitted, Licensed and Insured!

​​We offer year round all tackle fishing, upland bird and waterfowl hunts, outdoor skills classes and so much more . . . . 

Manistee River Outfitters also offers a "cast and blast" experience. Here you can enjoy a half day of fishing and a half day of upland hunting. Please call us for more details.



Manistee River Outfitters offers a wide variety of fishing options from fly fishing, spin tackle and center pins. We feature the Big Manistee River as well as other inland lakes and waterways. Depending on the season, we fish for Steelhead, Salmon, Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Blue Gills, Crappie and Catfish. We can provide fishing opportunities for other species, too.


If fishing is not what you are looking for, we offer duck and goose hunting using a fully equipped duck boat, platform blind and lay-out blinds to maximize opportunities of various locations. Book early for the Youth Hunt!  Our upland bird offerings include excellent pheasant hunting at a private club. These are guided hunts featuring hard-working dogs that love their "job". It's exciting to watch them in action so you can take a shot! Northern Michigan is a great location for Ruffed Grouse and Woodcock. Have fun flushing these little gems. 

 Come enjoy the scenic Big Manistee River in all its glory during the beautiful change of seasons on one of our fall color tour boat rides.   Also, give us a call for more information on our current outdoor skills classes and pricing.
