One of the Manistee’s most pristine stretches can be found in the 4,700-acre Deward Tract in Gaylord.  Its cool, narrow waters are home to plentiful brown and brook trout, making this section a fisherman’s paradise.  Although scenic, you’ll find more easily navigable waters toward the Grayling area.  Stretching from its headwaters in Otsego County to Lake Michigan, this popular river features a slow but heavy current with some deep holes carved into the riverbed.
