Director SLM Captain Ron Westrate From First Call 2 Charters reports from Saugatuck:
A very good week for fishing out of Saugatuck. The water temperature is still in the low 40 degrees and the fish are scattered from the top to the bottom. Early in the week we fished in 10 to 20 foot of water and caught some small salmon and a half dozen brown trout (one going over 12 pounds). Sunday we fished from 50 to 70 foot of water and caught 22 lake trout and 7 chinook salmon. The lake trout ranged from 5 pounds to 15 pounds but the salmon all weighed less than 2 pounds each. Metal flashers and green spin n glos on the bottom, produced most of the lake trout while the salmon were caught on small stingers on 30 ft, 75 ft, 100 ft. and 150 ft. copper. Our bigger salmon have not yet shown up in our water, however as the water warms, we should see more and larger salmon and steelhead in the creel.
