Fishing in the Benzie county/Frankfort area has been good if you are wanting to be chasing steelhead and King Salmon still. Chinook salmon up near the Homestead Dam and the lower stretches as we just got our last push of fresh fish for the year. Coho have been caught the last few days using Skein under a float and spinners. Steelhead have been showing up the past couple weeks sitting behind gravel, tail outs, and seams. Spawn bags and beads have been the best for Steelhead.
Crystal lake is producing coho and steelhead in the early morning hours for boat anglers trolling spoons and shore anglers using spawn. Pink, blue, orange, and chartreuse have been the best colors. Perch fishing on Crystal has been fair but should really pick up in the next couple weeks. Crappie rigs and bead rigs will be the key with minnows and wigglers once these fish really turn on.
