Upper Peninsula Weekly Fishing Report – May 26, 2021

Ontonagon: Catch rates were decent on the big lake as fish were moving out to deeper water. Fishing locations vary everyday depending on wind direction. Some nice lake trout and salmon have been caught.

Ontonagon River: Walleye fishing was hit-or-miss. Those finding fish have done well but were sorting through a good number of small ones.

Keweenaw Bay: When they could get out, boat anglers caught lake trout in deep water.  Low fishing pressure was reported on Huron Bay, the Silver River and the Falls River.

Little Bay De Noc: Anglers continue to catch a few perch near Kipling.

Big Bay De Noc: Anglers have caught walleye and smallmouth bass.

Munising: Boat anglers targeting coho and splake did not do well at all. Some did manage to catch the occasional brown trout, rainbow trout or king salmon. Surface water temperatures did climb to the low 40’s before the cold front moved in. There were no anglers fishing the Anna River because the action has been very slow.

Grand Marais: Boats trolling for trout and salmon reported slow catch rates. Pier anglers were getting some limit catches with the strong northwest winds.

Fishing Tip: Use a spinnerbait to target bass

As water temperatures rise, both largemouth and smallmouth bass will start to hang out in shallower water and stick close to areas with cover. Want to know a great tool to target them there? Try a spinnerbait.

Seek out cover; such as logs, boulders or weed patches and cast your spinnerbait in that direction. Often you’ll entice a bass ready to strike unsuspecting prey.
