Hey there everyone this is Cory with the DNR with this weeks fishing report.
Fishing has really slowed since August, but there are still fish to be caught.
Walleye right now are being caught south of the dumping grounds by trolling and in the North and Middle Channel of the St. Clair River. In the channels boats are drifting for walleye with crawler harnesses. Colors are mainly hammered brass and white with red dots on them. Other colors include bright orange and chartruese. Other than these two ares walleye are just hit and miss.
Yellow perch are being caught all around the main shipping channel in Lake St. Clair. Orient yourself with the St. Clair light and move around from there. Many boats are drifting to find the perch with perch rigs and then anchoring when finding them. Hot areas include east of the St. Clair light 1 mile and west of it 1 mile in about 15 feet of water. Channel marker 26 and 27 have also been productive and sailboat marker M. Lastly, east of the grosse pointe yacht club in about 15 or 16 feet of water. These areas are the most commonly fished, but there are many spots on the lake for everyone to fish. Right now they could be anywhere around these spots listed.
Smallmouth bass and largemouth are mainly being caught in the Middle channel and the south channel of the St. Clair River. Tube jigs have been working the best for these species. The mile roads from 13 mile down to 8 mile have also been productive this past week. Chompers and Gary Yomoto jigs have been best following with spinners of white in color.
No reports on Northern pike and Muskie have only been being caught on the Canadian side.
goodluck to everyone and hopefully everyone brings in their fish. Thanks, Cory

Thanks for your report - going out tomorrow a.m. after wallys - no luck last few times out on N channel. Looking for "biggies" further up the river this time. Will share any hot spots if found. Success stories and suggestions are kindly appreciated if you have them.
