Upper Peninsula Weekly Fishing Report – June 2, 2021

Ontonagon: When anglers can get out, fishing was good. Surface water temperatures were in the high 40’s to low 50’s depending on wind direction. Anglers are finding lake trout along with a few coho, steelhead, and brown trout in 100 feet of so. Most of the lake trout were on the small side.

Ontonagon River: Those chasing walleye had success when trolling, drifting, and jigging however they are sorting through a lot of small ones to get a few keepers.

Keweenaw Bay: Boat anglers caught lake trout, coho and steelhead in deeper water.  In Huron Bay, anglers were getting some walleye. Lake trout were caught east of Huron Bay.

Marquette: Anglers are catching a good number of lake trout in 160 to 200 feet. A few coho and steelhead were also caught.

Munising: Fishing was slow for boat and shore anglers especially with the northwest winds. Only a few small splake and coho have been caught.

Grand Marais: Pier anglers continued to do well for whitefish when using a single egg.  The odd coho was also caught.  Most of the whitefish were 12 to 13 inches. Fishing pressure was high in the morning with lots of anglers out. Favorable winds are from the northwest. Once the winds switch from the south the whitefish will move out. Boat anglers are starting to target more lake trout, coho and steelhead though catch rates were spotty.

Munuscong Bay: Had good walleye fishing.

Detour: Walleye were caught on the north side of Drummond Island in Scotts Bay. Trout and salmon were caught in the shipping channel between Detour and the island.  Most fish were Atlantic salmon.

Cedarville and Hessel: Pike fishing has picked up around the Les Cheneuax Islands.
