Weekly Fishing Report - June 19, 2015


We've had a lot of less than perfect weather over the last week, but that hasn't stopped some people from hitting the lake. Most of the river systems are running extremely high and dirty, while many local lakes have risen up past the tops of many docks as well!

Anglers in South Haven are still having a hard time locating any perch. In the past few years, July has been fairly good for perch fishing. Normal depths range from 28 to 45 feet of water. Let us know if you start to find some better schools!

Other reports from South Haven and St. Joe say that salmon fishing is pretty slow. Dreamweaver Meat Rigs and Got-Cha Flies behind a Spin Doctor are getting some kings. 85 to 145 feet of water are the best depths to search.

Reports from Gull Lake have bluegill anglers getting some nice fish in 16 to 18 feet of water. Bass fisherman are getting some good smallmouth out there as well.

For the most part, the bluegills have moved into deeper water and can be found suspended at various depths, especially on sunny days. Trolling Bo's Bluegill Busters over those suspended gills will help fill your livewell. Portage Lake, Rupert Lake, Eagle Lake - Bloomingdale, Three Mile Lake, Pleasant Lake, Little Paw Paw Lake, and Bankson Lake are all reporting good bluegill action lately.

This week Gravel Lake gave up a few perch for one angler and he also caught a 20 inch walleye. There were a couple of walleye landed out on Gun Lake this week too.

There was a 6 pound largemouth bass caught and released out on Clear Lake this week. Other good bass fishing waters have been: Barton Lake, Corey Lake, Three Lakes, Scott Lake, Deep Lake, and Paw Paw Lake - Coloma. Booyah Spinner Baits, Strike King Coffee Tubes, and Yamamoto Senkos have been working well.

There are not many lakes around Kalamazoo that hold good numbers of walleye, but there are a few that have been stocked in recent years. Try Cedar Lake, Gravel Lake, Gun Lake or Fine Lake. The Kalamazoo River is another good bet for walleye, but if you're looking for dinner, I would avoid the river! Hope this helps.
