Lake St. Clair

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Baitfish, crayfish and large nymph patterns work year round in open water and ice; work weed beds, structure and depth changes.

Work depth changes and use attractor flies. Topwater flies will take both smallmouth and white bass in the very early morning.

Fish along color changes which indicate depth change, weed lines, or structure.

Seven-day forecast 

Turbid water because of overturn. Use flies with rattles and/or fish in more sheltered areas with less wind. Fishing, where allowed, in harbors and marinas has been productive.
