Hey there everyone this is Cory again with this weeks fishing report.
Lake St. Clair is still turbid and a little cold yet with temperatures ranging from 43-50 degrees.
Yellow perch are still slow, but some are taken at the mouth of the Clinton River and the Salt River Area. Depths here range from 3-6 feet at the Salt River and 8-12 feet at the Clinton River. Minnows on perch rigs and a good ole worm and bobber seem to be working the best.
Northern Pike are being picked up all over the Lake. The Sni Bora off of the North Channel, off of Selfridge air base, and at mouth of the Clinton River Spillway are popular areas right now. Husky jerk baits are the most common method being used right now in about 3-6 feet of water. Find some weed lines and rock structure.
Panfish including bluegill, pumpkinseed, and crappie are being picked up in the Metro Beach Basin and some of the canals North of the Selfridge air base. The temperatures here are starting to approach 54 degrees which is ideal for crappie fishing. Minnows and wax worms on slip bobbers are working best right now.
Walleye are only being picked up in the North Channel right now besides the Detroit River. Find 35-40 feet of water and start drifting with jigs. Start at Deckers and go down to Grassy island. Bottom bouncers and jigs are the best method to use right now.
Some salmon and steelhead are being picked up off of Deckers Landing in the North channel. Just troll in about 55-60 feet of water between Deckers and Grassy island. Make sure you go down stream with the flow. Bombers are the most popular right now.
Good luck out there and hopefully fishing will start to pick up. Keep an eye on the temperatures around the lake and report any significant changes that you are seeing to me if you see me. See you at the launches. Cory
