Summertime is hot and we’ve been keepin’ cool with giant Hogzilla Grand River Smallmouth Bass.  The Grand River near Ada, West River Stretch near the Rogue River, the down town area, have all been fishing well for hot weather Smallmouth Bass on Michigan.  A plethora of lures are working well for river Smallies.  Spinnerbaits, soft plastic Ned rigs, square bill crankbaits in crayfish colors, all working well.  30 – 50 Smallmouth Bass are normal for Grand River trips.  The Grand River also offers some trophy Smallmouth as well.  Its an action packed day on the water!

Float fishing with beads has also been excellent. Chartreuse and orange have both been good. Casting gold spinners or crank baits have also been good.

Pere Marquette River Fishing Report

Larger Streamers have been working well for us, especially after a rain with a little color in the water.Resident Brown trout feed heavily on Steelhead – Salmon fry during this time of year.  It’s still pretty early for hatches so eggs and steelhead fry are the main food sources. Stripping streamers against the bank or log jams have been the best.  Some chasers come over the sand from the depths, it just depends on the day.  We’ve also seen many drop back (post spawn steelhead)  These fish are biters and jump high, and fight hard! 

Casting Cranks for Steelhead – We have been doing very well casting 1/4oz Storm Hot-n-tot Crankbaits for Spring Steelhead. The hits from these fish are unreal!! Bone crushing hits while casting cranks for steelhead. Indian Bridge, Custer, and Scottville offer the best opportunities for casting cranks for Steelhead. Hot-n-tots in metallic colors seem to work best for steelhead. Gold body with orange back has been the most productive so far. Any metallic color seems to work well. Mag Lips have been good also.
