Fishing Report

Little Bay De Noc: Walleye anglers reported fair action with the better catches for night anglers. Day anglers reported spotty catches throughout the Kipling reefs and south to the Escanaba in 18 to 38 feet with stick baits. Many reported large schools of bait fish throughout the area. Perch anglers reported very little as the waters are starting to turn over and were getting cloudy.

Not a lot of smallmouth bass were caught but those found were some very large fish. Most were fishing from Hunters Point south to the Farmers Dock area with plastics or small crank baits in 12 to 20 feet.

Water temperatures were hovering around the mid 40s.

Ontonagon River: Salmon and brown trout are present in the Middle Branch. Fish were seen north of M-28.

Falls River: Near L’Anse also had salmon and brown trout for those targeting them.

Two Hearted River: Water levels dropped to a more manageable level for steelhead fishing. A few anglers had some luck near the mouth. Some were surf-casting however north winds made it much more difficult.
