Nice catches of salmon in 135 foot of water in Saugatuck
<p>Some excellent catches this week. Lots of bait in the area near a good color change. Mix of kings (8-17 #), steelhead, and lake trout. Best fishing was 110-140 FOW, fishing 30-130 feet down. Best rigs were: silver orange or gold orange stingers on the high copper (200 ft), stingray UV dolphins on the deep copper (300 and 450 ft.), and flasher fly combos on the wire and riggers. Best combos were pearl fish scale/ purple no-see-um, and green/glow flashers with hypnotist, illusion, or wild fern flies. Some steelhead were caught around the piers and some perch were caught in 55-70 FOW.
