Saginaw Bay: Boat anglers heading out of Linwood Marina and trolling crank baits in 18 to 20 feet out near the Spark Plug and 2 miles northeast of Spoils Island caught some walleye. The average size was 3 to 5 lbs. Perch fishing was very slow, with only a few caught at Finn Road and in some of the cuts along the east shoreline. The fishery should improve if we ever get some ice. Sebewaing to Bay Port had little activity. At Caseville, some lake trout were caught on a variety of artificial baits and live minnows. A few pike, burbot and whitefish were also caught.
Saginaw River: Did not have much to report, as the river was running very high and muddy. A few boats were marking fish on their graphs but had no success with the strong current. A couple shore anglers were casting jigs but had no luck.
Tittabawassee River: Also had high water and a strong current.
