FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL
FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP
MONDAY OCTOBER 5, 2015
Its October and too many things compete with fishing . The opening of the Hunting Seasons, Football, River Fishing and Honey Do's, most have forgotten about Lakes Cadillac and Mitchell.
A few know the Lakes and are targeting walleyes. Both sides of the canal connecting the lakes have been productive. Reports of walleyes in the 15 to 20 inch range have started. Most action is just at dark.
Bass fishermen have been happy. Reports of plenty of Large Mouths in the 2/3 pound class. They're also catching Small Mouths. They've been AWOL most of the Summer and have returned from their vacations. Expect a few to be close to 5 pounds. Many Bass Anglers complain about the numbers of Pike they catch. The toothy critters are hungry too. Fishing for Bass you'll also catch Pike. Fishing for Pike you'll catch Bass. It's automatic.
The weeds have turned in many places on both lakes. Fish the remaining green, healthy patches and you'll catch fish.
Salmon Anglers want all the rain and cool weather they can get. Numbers are below expectations from past seasons. The cool weather and higher water levels brings more salmon up river. On the Big Manistee many have traveled the 32 miles to congregate at Tippy Dam. Numbers are improving daily.
