Saginaw Bay walleye fishing is fair to good when weather conditions allow you to get out on the bay.

Saginaw River  walleye fishing slowed with the warmer weather but catch rates should pick up by the weekend. Water flow is up after all rain. Be sure to watch for floating debris.

Au Gres River  has steelhead in the East Branch.

Rifle River  also has a number of steelhead up into the river.
