June 1, 2014 Fishing Report

We had another very good week of fishing with creel numbers of 10 to 14 salmon and steelhead per trip. The fish were found in 150 to 200 foot of water with the best depth being 170 to 185 foot. The Chinook salmon range from 5 to 15 pounds and the steelhead are weighing in up to 14 pounds. In addition we are taking an occasional Coho salmon, however they are in the 2 to 5 pound range. As a rule, the steelhead are being caught in the top 20 foot of water and the salmon are hitting from 15 to 40 foot down.

The steelhead are hitting orange and silver and orange and green Stinger lures on the 3 and 2 color lead core lines and on the 30, 75 and 150 foot of copper line pulled behind the planner boards and also on “add a lines” with the same stinger lures. The Chinook salmon are coming on mainly 200 and 300 foot of copper line with the NBK Stingray and Craig’s Reverse Christmas Stingray. Although not very productive, there are some salmon coming on the dipsy divers with flashers and flies run at 100 and 150 foot of line out. The downriggers (30 to 55 foot down) with stinger lures are producing some fish but they have not been real productive.

It is nice to see the salmon and steelhead in the deeper water, and they should start showing up in that 100 and 120 foot depth as the bait sets up just inside of that. For information and/or for booking a charter for these fantastic fish, email me at captron@chartermichigan.com.
