Lake Erie: Walleye can be found in 22 to 25 feet of water from Sterling State Park to the Femi Power Plant. Most are trolling spoons or bottom bouncers in purple or fire-tiger. Those anchoring and fishing with minnows have caught yellow perch. Be sure to bring lots of crawlers as the freshwater drum are hitting as well. Huron River: Is producing lots of bass.

Weekend! On Saturday June 11th and Sunday June 12th, both resident
and non-residents can fish without a license however all

Michigan’s vast resources while learning how to fish. Now that
summer is finally here, fishing has picked up so the weekend should
be good.

Port Sanilac:Boat anglers trolling are still
taking a mix of chinook, coho, steelhead and lake trout in 40 to 60
feet of water north of the port. A few perch were caught down
towards Lakeport.
Harbor Beach:Brown trout were caught south of the
harbor in waters 25 to 45 feet deep. Body baits and spoons are
working, try perch, silver and green. Fair steelhead fishing but
the action is getting better. Boats are running long lines with
offshore boards and spoons. Try 2, 5, or 8 color lead lines as
well. Bright colors work best. Good lake trout action straight out
and north of the harbor. Try spoons off downriggers or dodgers and
flashers with flies and spin
