FISHING CONDITIONS ON LAKES CADILLAC AND MITCHELL

FROM PILGRIM VILLAGE FISHING SHOP

SUNDAY, AUGUST 23, 2015

 

 

Waiting for the August run of King Salmon in the Manistee River?  Stock up on Thunder sticks!  King Salmon are showing up. Time for heavier line on your spinning reel.  Also, there seems to be better numbers of Summer Steelhad then earlier.  Often Salmon can be seen jumping over the Coffer heading to Tippy Dam.

Until recently those fishing Lake Michigan found Lake Trout numbers stronger them salmon.  Conditions have changed. Current catches consist mainly of three year old King Salmon in the 12 to 16 pound range.  Occassionly a lucky angler lands one over 20 pounds.  It's getting better every day.

Fishing on Lakes Cadillac and Mitchell continues to be good.  No sign of Dog Days of August.

Panfish Anglers continue to cash in on the Crappies on and around the City Dock Area on Lake Cadillac.  Sorting is necessary but the 8 to 10 inchers taste good and make a nice pile of fillets.

Good catches of Bluegills are showing up.  This time of year, crickets are the majic bait.  On Lake Mitchell one spot to try is a couple of football fields out from the Country Club/ Condo Area on the South Side.  Bobber fish the 9-10 foot depths where weeds start to thin out.  Occassional Walleye are known to be caught in this area.
