    Yeah it seems that way. Its just weird how early they came through this year (early mid september) as opposed to late September like it was the last few years. Idk ive only been fishing the coho run down there the last 3 years though so I don't have much point of reference.

    i agree with what you both r saying,, coho's normally on the grand, the schools all get here in 4 or 5 days n usually a couple of weeks later then they did this year, this was the smallest coho's return i ever seen,,,,,,,,,,,,where did they go???????????? :idea: maybe the lead coho lost the key to the river entrance , n there swimming around in circles n not feeding, waiting to go to davy jones locker in the lake n not upstream

    I still have hope. My fishing log says that in 2015 i landed 13. 8 were caught in October and the last one on Nov. 10. Edit: all between Lansing and Webber.

    For sure lol. I would think there's even more around now with the cool rain from the last couple of days.

    I'll be in search of early fall run Steelhead first thing in the a.m. somewhere along the middle stretch. I can't take it. Got a doe on freezer already from early doe so bow pressure off for me at the moment.
    Good luck to anyone who goes out!

    Went 3/5 on skips, one nice coho. Coho smashed a 3.0 G.O.B mag lips, three skips on metallic perch, two on center pin . Lost one on each. Saw two bucks sparring. Doe and fawn too.
