Aug. 24, 2014 Fishing Report

The lake has warm into the 70s and the salmon are being caught at a lower depth than last week. Salmon and Lake Trout and Steelhead are still being caught at a fairly good rate, however the most productive depth is now 50 to 110 foot. Creel numbers in the mid to high teens were common early in the week but dropped to the low teens by the weekend.

By the week end, 200, 300 and 400 foot of copper lines produced very well as did the dipsy divers and downriggers, all loaded with flashers and flies. Just about any color flasher (green, green/glow, white/glow, mountain dew, mixed veggie, blue wiggle and green wiggle) with Rapture flies (jungle, wild fern, green hypnotist, comet and green no see um) produced some very nice salmon in the high teens and low 20 pounds. Some of the boats are also using meat rigs run on long coppers, dipsy divers and downriggers with good success.

There were some reports of some fair but inconsistent perch fishing success 7 miles south of the Saugatuck piers and off the Holland piers. Early in the week there were some steelhead taken off the piers, however that action has since slowed or stopped.

The salmon are set to move in front the piers and begin their run, however until we see a drop in the water temperature, the majority will remain staged in the 100 to 150 foot dept. To get more information about the fishing and/or to make a charter reservation, email me at Captron@chartermichigan.com or call me at 866-253-8372.
