Depending on the water flow on weight , salmon i would recommend throwing west coast fly set up vs wasting money on bait, Steelies should be around this weekend from what I seen last weekend. I will be there tomorrow .

Fished the dam yesterday until dark. I didnt catch any steel or salmon but I did hook into something real nice. As the story goes, the big one got away.

There were reports of people catching salmon and steel but I did not witness anyone catch anything but a few smallmouth and bluegill.

However I did see some smaller steelies trying to jump up into the coffer! I love steelhead season!

Good luck and let us know if you caught anything!

First of the year for me. Caught him tonight in the Foote Dam area..:lol:

This one was not a trophy but decent and had a lot of energy, jumping four times. I let this one go as I do all of fish I catch.

I have never been to Foote. I have always fished the west side streams. Can you launch a drift boat at the dam? Can you motor back up to the dam? Are there ramps downstream?
Thanks for any help.

Its probably one of the more beautiful stretches of river in Michigan

It's my favorite river to fish. Some beautiful holes and a lot less traffic than the west side. It even holds a few nice fish from time to time :SHOCKED:
