Lake St Clair Fishing Reports - July 2018

Lake St. Clair:  The better walleye catches were around the St Clair Light and in the shipping channel in 20 to 30 feet near the drop-offs.  Fair catches of perch were also taken by those walleye anglers trolling a crawler harness.  The river mouths are a good place to look for smallmouth bass and walleye this time of year.  Smallmouth fishing was best along the Mile Roads in 10 to 12 feet.  Those fishing the canals caught a fair number of bluegills and rock bass along with the occasional perch when using crawlers.

Lake St. Clair

Anglers caught walleye at the mouth of the South Channel in 20 feet. A 4-ounce weight seems to work better and a 2-ounce weight. The fish have been hitting right as the bait comes off the bottom and the bite was light. Anglers have also caught some perch. Other walleye anglers did fair in front of the Brandenburg launch in 14 feet before the sun comes up. Hot colors were bronze, green or copper. Legal size musky were caught off the Dumping Grounds in 19 feet when casting artificial baits.  Smallmouth bass fishing has been great everywhere.
