Lake St Clair Fishing Reports - Apr 2019

Detroit River: Walleye continue to move into the lower river. No big numbers yet however some big fish have been caught. A few fish were caught up at Wyandotte near the steel mill. Perch fishing continues to be good in the canals around Gibraltar and Grosse Ile. Most are using perch spreaders or a red hook with a minnow. As walleye start to push up into the river to spawn, the William G. Milliken State Park and Harbor has opened one month early to accommodate all the boat anglers that will be in the area for the spring run.

Detroit River: Anglers were taking a few limit catches of walleye in the early morning near Altar Road, the MacArthur Bridge, the Renaissance Center and the Ambassador Bridge. Panfish were caught in the cuts and canals.

Lake St. Clair: Water clarity was below average. Smallmouth bass are starting to come into the area around the Mile Roads however it is still early.

St. Clair River: Fishing was still slow but should pick up soon. A few coho were caught in the North Channel and in the southern end of the river.

Detroit River: Perch anglers were still taking some fish on the east side of Grosse Ile and into Canadian waters. Walleye have been caught in the Trenton Channel and up near the Renaissance Center. Most were using jigs with minnows or rubber worms.
