Central Lower Peninsula Fishing Report – June 21st, 2013
Saginaw Bay Area
Walleye fishing has been good on Lake Huron’s Saginaw Bay. Crawler harnesses, crankbaits and spoons are all producing good results. A good bite has been reported by anglers fishing in 9 to 14 feet of water from the mouth of the Saginaw River up to Standish. Smallmouth bass fishing has also been good along shore in the shallows. Carp and gar are cruising the shallows, too, and bowfishers are dialing in.

Bluegills are starting to bed on inland lakes in Lake County including Big Star, Idlewild and Wolf lakes. The smaller lakes are heating up quicker. Trout fishing has been pretty good on the Pere Marquette River, especially in the “flies only” section.

Despite high winds, fishing has been very good on Lake Huron. Walleye fishing has been hot between North Island and Sand Point in 7 to 11 feet of water. Crawler harnesses are producing the best results. Bass and catfish action has been hot off the breakwall in town. Try stink baits for the cats and tubes and soft plastics for the bass. The spring perch run never got started this year.

Fishing has been hit or miss at Port Huron. When the bite is on, anglers are catching good numbers of walleyes and silver bass at the mouth of Lake Huron and in the St. Clair River. The water is still a little cool. It was 53 degrees last week.
