Gone fishin’

Upper Peninsula

• Lake Gogebic: Walleye and smallmouth bass were still being caught.

• Keweenaw Bay: Still had open water and was providing opportunities for lake trout, splake, and brown trout.

• Menominee River: Anglers caught walleye, brown trout and steelhead from the US-41 Bridge to the Hattie Street Dam. Some very nice fish were caught on live bait, spoons or crank baits.

• Little Bay De Noc: Had good walleye catches for those trolling stick baits and crank baits at night from the First Reef north to Garth Point. The better catches were in 10 feet but fish were also taken in waters up to 30 feet deep. Day anglers reported fair catches when trolling stick baits in 18 to 34 feet between the First and Third Reefs. A few dock anglers could still be found in the Escanaba Yacht Harbor. Those using minnows straight off the dock reported fair to good perch catches.
