Pere Marquette Fishing Report- August 30th

When the weather was cool, like the frost at our house in early August, the salmon fishing was fairly good. Well, the last week has turned hot and as it always does, the salmon fishing in turn has went cold.

That isn’t to say that fish are not ending up in the net but it takes some effort to put one there. ¬†Lower PM River water temps are in the 60’s, levels are good and there is good color.

Whatever is happening in the big lake off Ludington is a good look at what will soon be happening on the PM. Steve talked to Sean from Katch Me Charters yesterday and Sean said that while they haven’t been seeing big numbers, they are seeing big fish. Below is a picture from Sean’s web sit of a 35 pound king from a few weeks ago.

My prediction is for a big push of salmon as soon as this heat wave breaks.
