(Lake Michigan & Galien River)

October 3, 2020

The cold weather and high winds have disrupted fishing for the time being. This coming week, with more seasonal weather and stable water temps, things should perk-up — especially perch. That said, this past week’s rain and cooler temps sent coho and a few kings up the Galien. Skamania, bass, catfish, and freshwater drum are also available for the taking. Everything from wax worms to minnows seems to work.

Charter and fishing guide operations may operate with restrictions.

  • Maintain six feet of distance from one another, to the extent possible.
  • Ensure the use of personal protective equipment such as gloves, goggles, face shields, and face masks as appropriate for the activity being performed.
  • Adopt protocols to limit the sharing of tools and equipment to the maximum extent possible and to ensure frequent and thorough cleaning of tools, equipment, and frequently touched surfaces.
