Alpena Area Fishing Report

May 3rd, 2019

Alpena has the most consistent action in the state, get in on some World-Class fishing action!!!

Thunder Bay River- The Steelhead bite continues but we are nearing the end. your best chances will be by using the drift fishing method. Spawn bags, flies, and beads have been the go to methods in the very fast current. Many dandy chromers have been taken this year. Fish have been taken anywhere in the first 1/4 mile section downstream of the powerplant. Get out while there's still cool weather.
Lake Huron- The ice has left the Thunder Bay and the launches are open. We've been out many times now to the trout grounds and it has paid off with limits for everyone and the Atlantic Salmon have made their appearance including some very nice fish. 3 passes past the point with doubles and triples filled the box quickly and we headed in. 50-70 feet of water and lures down 40-45 feet has been the ticket. Coppers, riggers, and divers all taking fish. Spoons doing most of the damage.
Hubbard Lake- Opener on Hubbard lake was very productive. As always the pre-dark to midnight bite was the best Try shallow waters after dark with minnow baits such as Jerks and Rogues. Check out the picture of our 1st night below.
Fletchers pond/Floodwaters- Crappies and gills have begun to bite, but the cooler weather is making it a slow grind. The minute the weather changes expect a very hot bite. Limits are taken in shallow water using small tube jigs of almost any color under a bobber.
Good Luck and Tight Lines.
