Upper Peninsula Weekly Fishing Report – May 5, 2021

Ontonagon: Steelhead being caught in the lake means spring is here. Warmer weather did help the bite as angles caught coho, lake trout, steelhead, brown trout and the occasional Chinook.

Little Bay De Noc: Anglers were getting some perch near the First Reef off Kipling and to the north. A few smallmouth bass were caught near the mouth of the Ford River.

Manistique River: Was producing a fair number of steelhead.

Munising: Windy and cooler weather has meant fewer boats heading out. Water temperatures remain in the 30’s. Those targeting coho had poor catch rates although a few nice splake were caught. Limits of lake trout were reported with the average fish being 4-5 pounds. Shore and pier anglers caught a couple steelhead or splake.

Grand Marais: Anglers continue to do well for whitefish with limit catches reported. Though most fish were 13 inches or so, a few bigger ones were also caught.

Luce County: Trout lakes were producing some very nice brook trout.

St. Marys River: Perch fishing slowed. Lake trout were caught off Detour.

 

Fishing Tip: Help prevent the introduction and spread of invasive species

Anglers and boaters can do their part to help make sure Michigan’s rivers, lakes and streams are protected against invasive species by following these some simple steps:

  • CLEAN boats, trailers and equipment.
  • DRAIN live wells, bilges and all water.
  • DRY boats and equipment.
  • DISPOSE of unwanted bait in the trash.
