Freshwater Drum Are Biting

Although fishing was good in the beginning of the week for walleye anglers on Green Bay, it slowed down significantly on the weekend due to a storm that brought high winds and cold rain, lowering water temperatures.

Anglers report freshwater drum were biting heavily in Green Bay, with boats reporting 10 to 12 fish and some boats catching upward of 40.

Along Door County, trout and salmon fishing continued to be good out of both Sturgeon Bay and Baileys Harbor. The catch earlier in the week was mostly dominated by rainbow trout but more Chinook salmon were reported as the week progressed. This week was hit or miss for smallmouth bass anglers throughout Door County with bass everywhere one day, and nowhere to be found the next.

On Lake Michigan, fishing pressure in Kewaunee and Algoma was high later in the week. Anglers were primarily catching Chinook salmon and rainbow trout.
