12/6/2018 Northeast Lower Peninsula Michigan DNR Fishing Report

Northeast Lower Peninsula

Thunder Bay River: A couple Atlantic salmon were caught near the 9th Street Dam by those using orange and yellow beads. 
Au Sable River: Anglers caught Atlantic salmon while swinging large streamers or floating and drifting beads and spawn. Most fish were in the holes and behind current breaks, but a few Atlantic and coho salmon were still found on the beds. Steelhead were caught from the holes when fishing with Spawn bags, beads, spinners, wax worms and egg flies.  The steelhead action was slow. A few walleyes have been caught when casting crankbaits near the mouth. 

680 River Rd.
Oscoda Twp. Mi 48750
(989) 739-5332

Grayling Area: Anglers were waiting for safe ice to form on Lake Margrethe. Ice is covering Otsego Lake, but nothing safe for foot traffic yet. If the weather holds up anglers may be able to get out in a week or so. 

Higgins Lake: Had some shoreline ice; however, most of the lake is still open water. 
Houghton Lake: Ice is starting to form; however, anglers should wait a bit longer before heading out. A few spots had 1-5 inches, but most of the lake only had 1-2 inches, so the thickness is not consistent.
Oscoda Area: Lake trout and walleyes have been caught in Lake Huron by pier anglers casting spoons, crankbaits and jigs. Lake trout were also caught by anglers still-fishing with spawn.
