Anglers are bringing in good catches of yellow perch and the fish are beginning to move shallower. Most are using perch rigs or spreaders with minnows near the bottom in 20 to 23 feet near Buoys 1 & 2 of the River Raisin, out from Bolles Harbor near the E-Buoy and straight out from Stony Point in 21 to 25 feet. Largemouth bass were caught around the rocks near Bolles Harbor and Sterling State Park’s Army Corps of Engineers Pier with tube baits, lizards and various crank baits. Shore anglers fishing the lagoons at Sterling State Park caught largemouth bass on curly tail jigs and small bluegills, rock bass, and channel cats crawlers. Rock bass and freshwater drum were caught near Pointe Mouillee. Bass fishing slowed on both Cass and Union Lake. Those doing the best were fishing the weed lines in eight to 12 feet. Those trolling harnesses or crank baits caught few walleye but good numbers of pike, rock bass and panfish. Those fishing the southern part caught smallmouth bass in 18 feet near the Dumping Grounds when casting gray and purple tube jigs. Fish were also caught in 18 to 20 feet near the South Channel and in front of the 400 Club when drop-shotting green, pumpkin and watermelon lures or when drifting crawlers and spinners. Some large perch and a couple walleye were taken in 18 feet north of the St. Clair light with a crawler harness. On the north end, fishing was slower with only a few large or smallmouth bass caught in Bouvier Bay in three to eight feet while casting spinners, when drop-shotting tube baits around Brandenburg or casting crank baits near Selfridge. A couple smallmouth were caught between the purple building and the water tower on the west side of Anchor Bay in 12 feet. A few yellow perch and bluegills were caught about a half mile out from Selfridge when drifting worms over the weed beds. Those heading straight north found lake trout, steelhead, walleye and pink salmon in 100 to 140 feet. The lake was stirred up because of windy conditions so there was no specific thermocline and the fish were scattered. One boat traveled 35 miles north to the Yankee Reef and caught lake trout when vertical jigging large silver or chartreuse spoons instead of trolling. Perch fishing was pretty much all anyone was doing. Other good spots included the Black Hole, Sailboat Buoys A, B, D, or G, along the shipping channel at Buoy 22 and the two buoys past Spoils Island. Had good salmon fishing for those trolling in 100 to 130 feet. Those trolling the piers also caught a decent number of fish on spoons and J-plugs. Pier anglers caught salmon and steelhead on shrimp and crawlers under a bobber or when casting spoons. Perch fishing was slow as the fish were scattered in 10 to 60 feet. A few boat anglers had some good catches of Chinook salmon caught when trolling from the Cheboygan River to a half mile out near the shipping channel. A lot of boats got zero to three fish and many struggled. Most were taken in 40 to 90 feet with J-plugs, flashers and flies or the occasional spoon. A few lake trout and pink salmon were caught by those traveling further out to Spectacle Reef and Cordwood Point. A good number of bigger pike were caught by those bass fishing or trolling for salmon between the mouth of the river and the Coast Guard Station. A couple fish were taken on body baits but the majority were taken by those drifting skein. Some caught a few walleye, rock bass, smallmouth bass, bullhead, longnose gar and catfish. Smallmouth bass numbers are lower than most expect this time of year and the fish were smaller 14 to 16 inches. Walleye fishing picked up and those targeting the “Humps” area did well when trolling when trolling a crawler harness and body baits on the bottom. Perch fishing picked up as well with some getting 10 to 20 keepers per trip when using minnows and worms in Pigeon River Bay. Steelhead fishing was slow with one or two fish per trip. Boat anglers should have a great week for fishing as south, southwest and southeast winds will push the thermocline up higher in the water column. Calcite, Swan Bay and Adams Point were good places to use spoons, J-plugs, flashers with squid, flies and cut bait or spoons. Hot colors were green, blue, orange, black and white, purple and glow for a mixed bag of trout, salmon and walleye. Cold water arrived and anglers were getting a mixed bag of salmon, steelhead, lake trout, and walleye.
