With October's cold temperatures and more rain in the forecast, fall fishing has started to heat up.
Muskie anglers are starting to see an improvement in numbers and size. Lake St. Clair, Pigeon Lake and Niagara River have been producing good size and numbers of these fish of ten thousand casts. For anglers willing to travel, Lake St. Clair is an incredible fishery with world class muskie fishing.
Locally there are still Salmon running up the tributaries with some steelhead and brown trout running closely behind them, feeding on eggs washing down the river.
Steelhead will take a roe bag, worm, spinner or a minnow depending on the body of water you are fishing. A lot of local rivers and streams have an extended season for fishing opportunity.
Lake Erie is still producing good numbers of walleye or how late in the season it is. Anglers are still catching on worm harness's and body baits like rippling redfins.
Get out and enjoy some great fall fishing before the ice comes.
With fall temps in full swing, it has brought a change in fishing opportunities. The colder weather has the Salmon run in full gear from the pier right to the top of most tributaries. Credit River, Bronte Creek and Niagara River offer some great shore fishing for big fish. Lots of anglers enjoying it.
Most anglers do well off the piers casting glow in the dark spoons or jointed body baits for these big King Salmon.
Nothing has really changed on Lake Erie. It continues to be a walleye factory this year. Some anglers even catching their limit in less than an hour. Colder temps may make it hard in the upcoming weeks but as of now it has been the best i've seen it since the store has been open.
The Grand River is still warm and is offering all kinds of fishing opportunities from panfish to walleye. Some sightings of steelhead have been reported down stream.
