We’re into the heart of summer here in Michigan and with plenty of fishing options to choose from, for both cold and warm water species of fish.
The Muskegon river is still fishing good for trout early in the morning and later in the evening. Smallmouth bass fishing is picking up on all rivers and the upper Grand and upper Muskegon rivers should be coming into prime smallmouth fishing over the next couple weeks.
Some Skamania steelhead are showing themselves on the Kalamazoo and St. Joseph rivers in SW Michigan.
Some early Chinook salmon are in the little Manistee river, but have been getting fished heavily, for the number of fish in there.
We’ve been getting a mix of “true” summer weather, along with some fall type days & nights. Once mother nature gets things straightened out, we should be set up for the next 5-6 weeks of fishing, before the fall salmon gets into full swing on the Pere Marquette and Manistee rivers.
We hope to have some good Skamania reports over the next week or so, as well as more Bass and Pike reports and pictures.
