Had very few anglers but a couple nice walleye were caught in the channel by those casting body baits. Those trolling Lake Michigan had no success.
Had limited success for boat anglers catching crappie. They were still-fishing with minnows near Long Bridge.
Pier and channel anglers have caught steelhead on spawn. A few boats trolling the shoreline managed to catch some brown trout.
Pier anglers caught steelhead especially off the South Pier. Those fishing in the channel and off the Long Bridge also caught fish.
Pier anglers were catching some whitefish.
Pier anglers were floating spawn but no steelhead were caught. Those surfcasting had better luck with spawn or small orange spoons.
Pier anglers still-fishing with spawn are targeting steelhead however catch rates were very slow. Those surfcasting with spawn seem to be doing better.
When boat anglers can get out, look for steelhead as they are moving in closer to shore. Try the top 40 feet of waters 100 to 150 feet deep. Pier anglers have caught chinook and steelhead when still-fishing with shrimp.
Steelhead and lake trout have been caught in the top 40 feet of waters 200 to 400 feet deep. Some also caught the occasional chinook or coho.
No boat anglers to speak of, just too windy. Pier anglers were few and far between even though a couple salmon were caught on glow spoons either late at night or in the early morning.
Pier anglers are catching salmon but the action was spotty. Cool nights usually increase catch rates in the morning. Green spoons worked best. Fish are stacked up outside the piers in about 90 feet of water.
Pier anglers are starting to catch fish as the salmon are moving in. Most are using spoons as spawn is not working yet. Pier anglers caught a few brown trout on chartreuse or red spoons. Boats were trolling J-plugs and blue flies in 60 to 150 feet of water off Silver Lake.
The salmon have moved in a little as anglers caught fish in 115 to 130 feet of water. Only a few salmon have been caught from the piers.
Boat and pier anglers reported slow catch rates. The few fish that were caught were taken about halfway down in waters 200 feet or deeper. Water temperatures are still on the warm side.
Fishing is the slowest it has been this year. Anglers say it is difficult to find water temperatures lower than 60's degrees. Those using cut bait 65 feet down in 85 feet of water did mange to catch a few fish.
