ABOUT SAGINAW BAY WALLEYE FISHING...
Thousands of fishermen and pleasure boaters are attracted to the many excellent marinas,
campgrounds and recreational facilities that are available around the Saginaw Bay. Saginaw Bay is
considered one of the most productive and fertile fisheries of the Great Lakes. Saginaw Bay is a
large, relatively shallow basin along the western shore of Lake Huron that has become one of the
nation's top walleye fisheries. A combination of national walleye fishing tournaments and the outdoor
media have focused attention on the excellent fishing. After spawning, walleye and perch move
downstream and back into the bay. During summer, as the inner bay warms, walleye begin a slow
movement toward the cooler water of the outer bay. In late fall, movement of pre-spawn walleye
occurs up the Saginaw River. Fingerling plantings in the late 1970's are given credit for
re-establishing the Saginaw Bay walleye population. Currently walleye and yellow perch fishing
dominate the fishery and are by far the most commonly sought-after species. Recent surveys have
shown that walleye growth rates are some of the highest in the Midwest. The studies also revealed
walleye can reach the legal minimum size of 15 inches after just two growing seasons with most
requiring three seasons to grow into the 17-to-18 inch category. Call The FishFly Charter's

ABOUT LAKE MICHIGAN SALMON FISHING...
Lake Michigan salmon fishing provides some of the best salmon fishing activity. Salmon Fishing
Charter Boats have been a major part of the sport fishing industry in Michigan since the introduction of
several salmon species into the Great Lakes system in the 1960s to control alewife populations.
Salmon fishing is strong up and down Lake Michigan - from St. Joseph to Frankfort. The months of
July, August and September are generally the best for Lake Michigan Salmon fishing. And if you are
seeking the mighty King Salmon this is the time to come, when they are in a full-scale feeding mode.
Sizable Lake Trout can also be found in abundance during July, August and September. The weather
generally cooperates this time of the year - and the salmon fishing is great. King Salmon and
Steelhead salmon are often the targeted fishing species, but on many days all Lake Michigan salmon
species (King, Chinook, Steelhead, Brown Trout and Coho) can be found schooling together. The
sizes of Lake Michigan's salmon species population can range from 5-30 pounds - or more! Call The
