Brown trout fishing is heating up

published 14 April 2014

Water flow in the Salmon River is at 5200 CFS until midnight tonight. At this flow along with poor water clarity, the Salmon River is very difficult to fish from shore. The smaller tributary's are fishing well. Best baits in the small streams have been pink worms and night crawlers.The brown trout fishing on the lake has been very good. With guys catching fish on Smithwick stick baits and Michigan stinger UV pickle seed spoons. Here's a video of some hot Brown Trout action from this past Saturday. The Lake is a 5 fish rating for Browns right now.
