Saginaw Bay when boats can get out, walleye were caught at the Spark Plug when trolling crank baits in 18 to 20 feet. Yellow perch were caught by those putting in some time out near Buoy 18 and near Spoils Island. The fish averaged 10-13 inches. In the Quanicassee area, boat and shore anglers were looking for perch but very few were caught. Sebewaing to Caseville had little angler activity. Shore anglers did not do so well, and most of the boats were duck hunters.
Saginaw River anglers jigging both live and artificial bait caught walleye from the mouth to the train bridge in Essexville (USS Edson). Yellow perch fishing was a little slow; however, if you put in some time, you could get a nice batch of fish in Essexville.
Au Gres Area perch were taken on minnows in 30 to 40 feet out near the shipping channel and near Point Lookout in 40 feet. Bigger fish were found in 14 to 16 feet straight out from the marina and south towards the Saganing Bar. Walleye were caught near Whitestone Point, Point Lookout and Point Au Gres. Small perch were caught off the dock and parking areas on the Pine River. Inside Eagle Bay Marina, anglers caught perch, bluegills, crappie and sunfish with minnows and worms.
Au Gres River steelhead were caught in the East Branch when drifting spawn at the Singing Bridge.
