Salmon have moved in.....

Salmon have moved in many of Michigan's rivers, and many throughout the Great Lakes as well. Rain and cooler temps will be ideal for pushing fish up the rivers. Anglers are doing well on the Pere Marquette, Manistee, Platte and Betsie, with many other Lake Michigan tribs holding fish. Fish have been in some rivers for weeks, depending on temps and flows. Spawning is taking place on a few tribs, but more will hit the gravel in the next few weeks.

Also, steelhead and lake run browns have ascended a few of the rivers, and are feasting on salmon eggs.

Get ready for the season, I won't be out as much as I would like to, but I will find time to hit my local rivers. :hehe:
