The salmon run is just getting started. Anglers fishing the lower river have started to catch chinook. Skein and body baits are the ticket.
Also had some chinook salmon moving up into the river. No big numbers yet but the rain and cooler temperatures have a few fish on the move.
Is currently experiencing a mayfly hatch.
Is producing some nice brown trout for those fly fishing.
Still has opportunities to catch a steelhead.
Steelhead spawning is pretty much done but anglers may still find a few leftover fish to catch. A few suckers were caught but water levels are low and clear so the fish spook easily.
Steelhead are on the gravel which is early this year. The run will not last much longer.
Steelhead fishing is very good with lots of fish in the river.
Had higher water levels near Scottville. Steelhead fishing should only get better in the next few weeks.
Continues to produce steelhead and catch rates will only improve as the temperatures rise.
Has the same report, catch rates are fair as winter continues to hold on. Fresh fish are entering the river but the spring run has not yet started.
Has good steelhead fishing in the lower river.
Pere Marquette Lake water levels were up a bit however anglers are still catching some nice steelhead when fly fishing.
Continues with good steelhead fishing.
Also had good steelhead fishing especially with the warmer temperatures.
