Boats that are still trolling out on Lake Michigan around South Haven are getting lake trout and some nice 3 year old king salmon. J-Plugs and Magnum Spoons are taking fish out in 85 to 100 feet of water.
Anglers fishing the St. Joe River are getting some steelhead in the holes down river from the Berrien Springs Dam. Spawn and Storm Hot-N-Tots have been the main choice of anglers this week.
In the Kalamazoo River from the Allegan Dam down to Swan Creek, there have been a few salmon mixed in with the steelhead. Shore fisherman are getting fish on yarn eggs, spawn, and spinners. Boats trolling down stream are using Brad's Wigglers, Hot-N-Tots, and Yakima Mag Lips.
Reports from some inland perch fisherman say that they are finding fish out on Lake Cora and Little Paw Paw Lake. Wigglers and night crawlers have been getting those fish to bite. 18 to 24 feet of water have been the best depths for perch this week.
The best bluegill lakes this week have been: Gravel Lake, North Lake, Reynolds Lake, Huzzy Lake, Saddle Bag Lake, and Muskrat Lake. Red worms, wax worms, and spikes are working well.
A couple of anglers found some eater size walleye this week out on Lake of the Woods. They caught four keepers on Strike King Jerkbaits. Another angler took two nice walleye out on Gun Lake this week. One of the fish from Gun Lake weighed 4 pounds.
Smallmouth bass fishing is good in the Kalamazoo River from Comstock up to the Morrow Pond Dam. Some northern pike are also being caught in that stretch of the river. Zoom Grubs, Venom Tubes, and Strike King KVD 1.5 crankbaits are catching a lot of fish.
