Gone fishin’

Upper Peninsula

Menominee River: With one gate open at the Hattie Street Dam, anglers were catching walleye and whitefish when using jigs with crawlers or minnows in the current. There are plenty of whitefish in the river. Those night fishing off the Cat Walk caught walleye on large rapalas and thundersticks fished in the current.

Little Bay De Noc: Water temperatures are averaging the mid to low 40s. Most anglers are fishing north of the “Narrows”, the Kipling Flats or the Second and Third Reefs. The better walleye fishing was at night. Anglers are trolling stick baits in waters eight to 23 feet deep. Some are still getting a few perch along Butler Island.

Manistique River: Does not have much in the way of salmon however steelhead are in the river.
