Central Lower Peninsula Fishing Report – October 25th, 2013
Saginaw Bay Area
Perch fishing remains good in Lake Huron’s Saginaw Bay. A good bite has been reported by anglers fishing in 15 to 18 feet of water at Linwood, but they are having to sort through the fish to find the keepers. A decent bite has been reported at Quanicassee and Au Gres, too. Waterfowl hunting has been good. Deer hunting has been fair, and hunting pressure light. Pheasant season should be relatively good.
