Lake Erie & Tributaries
Prior to last weekend, steelhead fishing was pretty good in the lower sections of the Lake Erie tributaries. Anglers who were fishing the mid to upper sections reported much fewer hook-ups. There were blow-outs on the Erie streams this past Saturday and Monday. The high water events likely helped move more steelhead further upstream. The creeks are in good shape today (Wednesday), however with plenty of rain in the forecast, another blow-out is imminent. Tributary steelhead commonly take flies such as egg imitations, nymphs, streamers and wooly buggers. Drift anglers do well with egg sacs, beads and jigs with grubs fished under a float.

Niagara River
November is traditionally a top month to target muskellunge in the upper river. Target musky by casting large stickbaits or by drifting and jigging large (8"-10") tube jigs. Trolling around the outer Buffalo Harbor and breakwall gaps can sometimes produce a musky catch.

With the king salmon bite tapering off in the lower river, focus now shifts to trout. Boaters in Devils Hole and shore anglers in the gorge are now catching a mix of steelhead and king salmon with the occasional walleye or lake trout mixed in. Be aware that lake trout season is closed in the lower river as of October 1st. Incidentally caught lake trout should be quickly returned to the water. The Artpark drift and shoreline is another good spot to target steelhead. Egg sacs, egg pattern flies, shiners or jigs with plastics fished under a float or casting medium-sized spoons and spinners are good steelhead offerings.

Detroit River: The yellow perch bite continues to improve as more fish move up into the river. Those fishing the cuts and canals are taking fish on minnows.

Lake St. Clair: The walleye, perch and other panfish bite has increased. Anglers have started jigging for walleye with the cooler temperatures. Most were using a blue jig and plastics tipped with a minnow. Panfish are in the local canals and marinas.

Nov 9/18

Detroit River: Walleye anglers were jigging minnows and plastics around the islands. Yellow perch are just starting to move into the cuts and canals.

Lake St. Clair: The ramps are starting to come out however there was still at least one dock in at all the launches at this time. Water temperatures were in the upper 40ís. Muskie fishing will only get better as the water cools down. Target the areas where the rivers are flowing into the lake and where the gizzard shad concentrate. Anglers were trying to get out for yellow perch on the south end of the lake however rain and strong winds have made for tough conditions. Bluegill, pumpkinseed and crappie fishing in the canals and marinas was very good.

St. Clair River: Shore anglers casting off the wall in Port Huron caught walleye after dark. A few salmon were caught in the early morning or evening.

Lake Erie: Boat anglers were getting some walleye in Brest Bay when they can get out. Fish were caught in shallower waters when jigging with minnows or plastics. A few shore anglers were targeting fish off the Metro Park. Yellow perch are moving up into the river.

Bass have slowed for me on the river. Any tips for walleye?

Same as for bass, worms slow drifted along bottom, location is the key thou. Theres a few spots where the walleye like to hang out. Took years to find them, and have been sworn to secrecy . sorry
