The U.P. of Michigan Fishing Reports

Upper Peninsula Fishing Report - July 3rd, 2015

Pickford Area

Walleye fishing has been decent on Raber and Munuscong bays. Crawler harnesses have produced the best action. Lots of pike have been caught in Munuscong, too. In Lake Huron at Cedarville, anglers report catching good numbers of northern pike, and herring should show up any day. 

Wilderness Treasures, (906) 647-4002.

Drummond Island Area

Walleye fishing has been pretty good in Maxton and Scotts bays in 4 to 9 feet of water. Crawler harnesses and stickbaits are both catching fish. Smallmouth bass fishing has been good, too. Herring should arrive any day now. 

Johnson’s Sport Shop, (906) 493-6300.

Escanaba Area

Walleye fishing has been fair on Lake Michigan’s Little Bay de Noc. Mayflies are hatching and alewives are spawning, so there is a lot of food in the bay. Salmon fishing has been good at Fairport for those fishing 40 to 60 feet down over 100 feet of water or more.  

Bay View Bait & Tackle, (906) 786-1488.

BayShore Resort Bait & Tackle, (906) 428-2950.

Menominee Area

Lake Michigan’s Green Bay is producing a few perch, and light numbers have been caught in the Menominee River, too. Walleye fishing has been slow, but bass anglers are finding fish below the dam.

Waterfront Sport Shop, (906) 792-0467.

Bergland Area

Minnows and leeches are taking decent numbers of walleyes on Lake Gogebic, but action had slowed last week due to mayfly hatches. Those fishing near the weeds in 8 to 10 feet of water reported the best action. Perch were hitting crawlers fished in the weeds.

Bear’s Nine Pines Resort, (906) 842-3361.

Iron River Area

Panfish and walleyes continue to keep anglers busy on Hagerman, Ottawa, and Chicagon lakes.
