(Lake Michigan & Galien River)
August 26, 2023
The midweek shift in the weather pattern brought turmoil to the lake. The front caused churning in the water near shore and raised water temps near the bottom. and warm water near the bottom that pushed the fish out to 100+ FOW. The sea state this weekend does not look good for fishing. The coming week will bring calmer waters, stabilized cooler temperatures, and better fishing. Shallow water trolling for kings and coho should be on the agenda.
Thermoclines vary from day to day. Keep an eye on lake water temps. Get real-time information on wind, waves, and water temperatures @ southern Lake Michigan buoys.
There are reports of trout and salmon working their way into the Galien. Spinners or plugs lures of choice.
