FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL
FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP
SUNDAY, APRIL 13, 2014
Last week we were still ice fishing and concerned that the lakes would still have ice for the Pike/Walleye opener April 26th. Warm temperatures and plenty of rain has ended those fears. Twenty-four inches of ice has been reduced to a mere black cover. A few brave souls fished up to last Thursday with no reports of anyone getting wet.
Predictions of rain, snow and sleet this week should complete the job. Now there,s flood warnings in the area. Lake Cadillac traditionally opens first. Currently its opening from the canal (Mitchell State Park)out. The returning ducks and geese are happy.
Last ice was good for Joe Lueck. He's holding part Fly fishing at Tippy Damn, Terrill Cockran landed
of his catch, two 13 3/4 inch perch caught from an a 15 pound Steelhead on a pink wooly bugger.
The Manisttee River is high and cold but the fish are enoying it. They're catching Steelhead at Tippy Damn but better numbers are holding down river in the deeper holes. As a bonus the accidental walleye catches will be legal April 26th.
Steelheaders - check out our selection of Raven, Drennan
and Sheffield Bobbers, Beads and Hooks.
