Indiana Fishing Report – June 26, 2020

Lake: Lake Michigan (boat)
Fishing report: Fishing continues to be locally good. The best silver fish concentrations seemed to be out of Portage and East Chicago, near the tri-state line, although it depends day to day. Mostly cohos with an occasional chinook and steelhead mixed in for those running a dodger/fly program with a couple deeper baits targeting kings and trout. 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 thermocline is setting up nicely at about 45 feet as of Friday. Yellow perch are picking up at Portage and Michigan City in 15 to 40+ feet. Best action was near the mouth of the Ditch, just east of the Donut, and by Black Ditch in Michigan City, but the fish were still a bit scattered. With warm weather on the way and a thermocline forming, action should get more consistent soon. Remember to check the wave forecast before planning a trip – http://www.nws.noaa.gov/os/marine/gtlakes.htm. Click on the map of the USA to enlarge, and then click on the red dot near Chicago. Then select the area of the lake you are planning on fishing to obtain the local wave forecast.

Lake: Lake Michigan (shore)
Fishing report: Skamania continue to be caught at Portage Lakefront Park and Michigan City Harbor, especially near the DNR building and near the Coast Guard. As usual, some days are great and others are slow. Shimp and crawlers were doing well, but some anglers had success casting little cleos and KO wobblers in silver/blue, silver/green, and orange colors. Channel catfish and freshwater drum were also hitting pretty well. The recent rain and cold front led to lots of fish shooting up the creeks so action was slower recently.

Region: North
Lake: Lake Michigan Tributaries (Trail Creek, Little Calumet River, Salt Creek)
Fishing report: The mid-week cold front and rain led to a nice push of fish up the creeks. With water low and clear, fishing early morning or late evening is a good idea, as is downsizing baits. Action has been pretty good at first light using spawn, shrimp, and spinners.

Region: North
Lake: St. Joseph River (below Twin Branch Dam)
Fishing report: Skamania action is fairly limited due to water temps in the mid-70s. We are in full summer pattern for bass, walleye, and catfish. Crankbaits and jerkbaits are a good multi-species technique this time of year
