Today I was fishing in the upper part of the river near the bluewater bridge and caught a 6lb steelie about 10 minutes after setting up.I might as well have packed up and went home afterwards because after staying till 7:30 this evening nothing.So far Im 3 for 3 this season.
With 2 browns and 1 steelhead.So far Im off to a better start than last year and I hope this streak continues.Im enjoying the success.:D :D :D

Thompson's Bait, Tackle & Archery is the tackle shop located on 1222 Water Street in Port Huron. They're located across from the 12th Street boat launch. Here's there number: 810-982-2321. :D

PS. See you there next Saturday with the rods & Smelt net!
Thompson's does have some good prices, and nice people too!

As far as the Smelt running high or low...well that depends on where you dip at on the river. I usually dip & fish by the treatment plant, because the current is much slower there. The Smelt run both high OR low in this area.

The good news is that there's usually plenty of guys dipping at various depths there, so it isn't too hard to find out where there running. Just take a stroll along the wall and watch where the successful guys are setting their nets.

I never dipped up by the bridge, but I see alot of guys running their nets up high there.
