Indiana Fishing Report – June 4, 2020

Lake: Lake Michigan (boat)
Fishing report: Kings and coho have been hit or miss, with best action from Portage east to the Michigan state line in 40-80 feet of water, depending on the day. Anglers have reported lots of lake trout mixed in. Some skamania are showing up staging near Portage and Michigan City in 30 to 80 feet depending on the day. Orange and red spoons are standby lures for steelhead this time of year. Fish have been scattered so if you find a school it might be worth circling on it a few times before moving on to new water. Orange, blue, and green spoons on lead/copper lines, and downriggers with free sliders have been good for just about everything. Flasher/fly setups on wire dipsy divers have also produced. The yellow perch are in the midst of spawning – last week there were lots of perch in the 50 foot depths near Michigan City in full spawning mode.
