Salmon fishing off Saugatuck was as good as it could get this past week. Catches of 12-20 fish everyday, a limit catch of 30 on Saturday. The creel was dominated by kings 8-26 pounds with some adult coho (up to 14#), lake trout, steelhead, and even a brown trout in the mix. Best fishing was from 130 FOW to 175 FOW. During the week fish ranged from 40-110 feet down, and came on downriggers, copper, and wire divers. The vast majority of fish came on Stinger Echip flasher/Rapture fly combinations. The best combo were: 8 mixed veggies w/ a sour apple, 8 chrome w/ a hypnotist, 8 superfrog w/ a wild fern, 8 green glow w/ a wild fern, 8 chrome mt. dew/UV w/ a speed weed or no-see-um, 8 Davey Jones glow w/ a speed weed or green-no-see-um. In addition we had success with Pro Troll 11 white double crushed glow w/ a hypnotist, Pro Troll 11 green UV frog w/ a first wish, and a Pro Troll 11 chrome mt. dew w/ a hypnotist.

Tremendous amounts of bait fish promise that fishing should continue to be excellent. Some of the adult kings are beginning to darken for the spawning run. It should be a great end of summer fishery. For charter reservations or fishing information, email me at captron@chartermichigan.com.
