Was hoping to gets some info about steelhead on this river do the fish run up this entire section ( Cato) or is it mainly near manitowoc areas. Looking to find more spots this spring. Also new to the centerpin this year any advice on casts to learn easy and effective. Not looking for exact spots on river just general info on how far they run up

I am new to the area and looking for suggestions for fishing the Manitowoc river. I am only able to fish from shore so locations of those hidey holes would be helpful if you would be willing to share. Also would like to know the species I can expect and best lures to use. I understand that the salmon and trout runs are only spring and fall but would appreciate info on that as well. I know I'm asking for a lot but really do enjoy just getting out and wetting a line. Thanks for any help

jawsmama1 - Usually ( using the term loosely), the Manty. will clear to a float-able/c-pinable state within 48 hrs. post a moderate to light precip. event. The turbidity, clarity, etc. are attributes entirely reliant on the amount of pecip.; as I'm sure you're aware of. Also, the NOAA/WDNR flow - sties are great for loose interpretation on what you may experience upon your trek - just remember all is relevant to personal interpretation. Good luck & hope I was of some assistance.

First time floating or fishing the Mani this weekend. Floated from Hwy S to Union. Wasn't sure what to expect but I wasn't expecting chocolate milk 72 hours after rain. Trip was mainly a bust and couldn't even scout potential holding water. River seemed low to float at 260 cfs for that stretch but was doable. I wouldn't do it again unless the flow was at least 300. How long does it take the Mani to clear up after a rain event usually? Maybe this was the first rain after the ground thawed? Anyway, there were ample rocks and riffles and saw a dozen or so suckers and one steelhead on the float despite the horrid visibility
