FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL
FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2013
Its cold, windy and rainy. As the temperatures fall there's even a touch of snow flurries. A few not hunting, still fish Lakes Cadillac and Mitchell. The walleye bite is best the first few hours osf dark. The regulars wader fish the mouth of the canal on the Mitchell side casting Rapalas.
Bass and pike are active most of the day. Pan fisherman have put their equipment away even though there's a perch and rock bass bite on the East side of Cadillac.
MANISTEE RIVER - The River Rats are finding numbers of steelhead. Those fishing Tippy Damn brag about having numbers in the teens on. Those on and those to the bank are two different things. The limits are there in the 6 to 12 pound range.
There's still numbers of salmon on the Damn. The Kings are pretty dark but there have been fresh Coho runs with the rain and cold temperatures.
Jigs tipped with wax worms is currently one of the better steelhead baits. Even an occassional Coho can be caught on them.
Its sad, but the sezson must come to an end. Tackle and bait sales are down to a tricle. Many are already inquiring about ice tackle. Orders have been placed and we're just waiting for delivery. If all goes as planned the store will be set by Deer rifle season. Lots of new exciting items this year.
This is the last report until there's ice. We'll keep you informed when the ice is safe. Watch you're bobber! See you on the ice!!
Show off your catch, bring it in and we’ll take your picture and put
you on the web.
Detailed maps of current fish conditions are available at the Pilgrim Village Fishing Shop. Stop in.
