Pere Marquette– rising

We’ve got kings in the lower and middle river and some spotted in the upper river as well. Good numbers of fish are holed up in specific locations and it really helps to know where they are to catch them. They are taking Thundersticks, big flies that throw off a lot of vibration, and egg patterns. We’re starting to see a couple on gravel, but full time spawning season is still around the corner.

Manistee–  average

Finally got a good push of kings and a few cohos all the way up to Tippy Dam last week. Better numbers still on the way.

Muskegon- average

The river is finally come up a bit and the temps are cooling down. Some salmon have entered the lower river and trout fishing is once again an option higher up near Croton dam. Phil Cusey
