    Caught a 25 in. Walleye using a night crawlers

  • Fishing Report

    Fishing was just getting started with lots of suckers being caught in the rivers. Perch were caught in the cuts and canals and some walleye were taken off the mouth of several area rivers. Then the rain came…and now the rivers are at or above flood stage so fishing is just about impossible. Muddy water near the mouth of the rivers will make walleye fishing more difficult.

    Ice along the edge is gone to the point that anglers will need waders to get out. Keep in mind, if the wind shifts, you might not be able to get back. It would be best to put away the ice fishing gear and stay off the ice! A few guys with air-boats are still fishing but most are getting ready for spring.
    Shore anglers are starting to fish for perch at the Quanicassee River, the Garner Road Drain, and off Kirk Road. Most caught small fish as the perch really have not come in yet. The Thomas Cut ...more is just opening up. At Sebewaing, the river was fishable but nothing was caught. It appears the fish runs will peak about two weeks later than usual this year because of the harsh winter. We could see an unusually good walleye opener on the rivers because fewer fish will have left by the time the season opens on April 26th.

    Ice fishing was still going strong but ice near the shoreline was getting bad. It is not a good idea to be drive or park on the ice. Spring run-off was starting to stain the water. The days of ice fishing are numbered but walleye are now moving closer. Those heading off White’s Beach for walleye need to be careful near the pressure crack. Some perch were caught off the end of Newman Road and Townline Road. At Linwood, walleye were in 15 feet of water but the shoreline ice is getting bad. Walleye ...more were caught in three to nine feet off the Bay City State Park. Those venturing out from Sunset Bay Marina caught a few walleye from the Slot in 13 feet. Sebewaing was slow due to muddy water. No activity at Caseville.

    Ice angling continues with lots of people out fishing. Cold nights continue to sustain the ice but driving trucks out there is not a good idea. The snow cover is gone, so bring your cleats. Rivers have yet to open up so steelhead and sucker fishing are pretty much on hold. On the west side, only a couple walleye were caught because of dirty water. The occasional perch and walleye were taken in six to eight feet off Townline Road and Newman Road. Those fishing off the Bay City State Park caught walleye ...more in 15 to 17 feet. Fish were also taken in nine feet off Parish Road, 14 feet off Killarney Beach, and four to 10 feet off the trailer park near the mouth of the Saginaw River. Most are heading out about 6 pm and fish until after dark. On the East side, fish were caught in 14 feet off Thomas Road and Sunset Bay Marina. At Sebewaing and Caseville, the water is getting dirty and the river ice is getting bad as runoff starts to erode it.
