NOTE: I missed last week's DNR report, but there WAS an LSC report for last week's report, and it said perch were hitting but not in big numbers, and musky were being caught up in Anchor Bay. Just an FYI for all of you.

The salmon are at or near peak along the northwest side of the state. Those fish will turn dark quickly as they finish out their spawning runs. As these runs finish up, look for more steelhead to start entering the rivers. On the inland waters, anglers are still catching some bluegill, bass, pike and walleye.

Southeast Lower Peninsula

Lake Erie - Perch were caught in 12 to 14 feet of water straight off Erie Metro Park when using minnows. Perch were found near Turtle Island. A few bonus walleye were caught by those targeting perch. Bass fishing was rated as good in the Monroe Hot Pond and the action should continue to get better as water temperatures drop.

Huron River - Steelhead are being caught but no big numbers yet. A few anglers have been seen between the mouth and the dam. Try spawn, spinners, jig and wax worm, or small spoons. Catch rates should only get better in the next couple weeks. Those looking for panfish will want to check out Huroc Park for bluegills.

Detroit River - A few perch were caught off Stony Point however anglers will need to sort out the small ones. Some nice smallmouth bass have been caught by those using crayfish, minnows, tube baits and rubber worms. Fish the mouth for walleye.

Lexington - Salmon are moving into the harbor but few anglers were out. Try early morning or late evening with small spoons, body baits, or spawn under a bobber.

Port Sanilac - Try close to shore and off the piers for salmon and steelhead.

Port Austin - A few salmon were seen in the harbor but not much angler activity.

Saginaw Bay - A few perch and walleye were caught along the shipping channel and near Spoils Island. Anglers were only bringing in about 5 fish per trip so the action is still far from red hot. A few perch were being taken out of the Garner Road Drain near Oakhurst. At Sebewaing, bluegill and sunfish were caught in the marina by those using regular worms or wax worms.

Tittabawassee River - Is still producing some walleye.

Saginaw River - Is also producing fair numbers of walleye. There are fish in the river for those willing to spend a little time to find them.

Quanicassee River - Small perch were still being caught but the action was slow.
