Upper Peninsula Weekly Fishing Report – April 21, 2021

Ontonagon: Strong winds have stopped boat anglers from heading out. When they did get out, a few anglers trolling did well while most only picked up a fish here and there.  Some steelhead were caught but there were no reports of fish in the rivers yet. Large schools of smelt were seen at the mouth of the Ontonagon River; however smaller streams have not seen any smelt.

Little Bay De Noc: Boat anglers continue to catch yellow perch near Kipling.

Manistique River: Has a good number of steelhead in the system.

Indian Lake: Was producing some perch.

Au Train: Boat anglers were getting some limit catches of coho along with the occasional Chinook. Water temperatures were about 34 degrees.

Munising: Shore and pier anglers report slow fishing with only a few coho and splake caught. Boat anglers trolling within the bay caught a few coho. A few limit catches of mainly coho with the occasional steelhead or brown trout were reported in Trout Bay up near Chapel Beach.

Grand Marais: Limits of whitefish along with a few coho averaging 12 inches have been caught. Most are using eggs for whitefish and spawn sacs for coho.

Steelhead are in rivers and the majority may be done spawning. Smelt were found in Sable Creek.
