Saginaw Bay is producing walleye. Those taking advantage of the nice weather were fishing off Linwood and Patterson Road. Limit catches were common and so were walleye weighing in at seven to nine pounds. Most are trolling crank baits.
Saginaw River walleye anglers should be doing well. This is the time of year when most are vertical jigging in the river.
Tawas Area some walleye were still being caught in Tawas Bay in the evening. Whitefish activity on the State Dock is pretty much done.
