Hows the river.


Recommended Posts

I live in GR and thinking about doing a Saginaw River trip before season closes. Have not had a chance to go to that side of the state and was wondering how is the ice and the lack of. Thinking about fishing on the 12th. Any help would be appreciated

The river has been mostly free of ice along with the bay. The ice on the bay is not very good and would not recommend going out on it. The river has been kind of slow as most of the fish have not moved in yet. They are getting a few smaller fish however. I would recommend checking this site out.

Fished the river the last couple days. TONS of fish in the system. Your going to sort through allot of small fish to get to the keepers. Pulled 8 yesterday and 5 today, so 13 keepers outta probably 100+ fish boated. 3/8-1/2 oz. jigs with minnow imitating rubber bodies, twister tails and drop shot type worms are all working well.

Ill post a pic when i get them up of the limit i caught.

Heres the fish we got the other day. Used # 8 blood run braid and fluorocarbon for a leader and then 3/8 and 1/2 oz. northland jigs with lunker city smelt colored finesse fish to get these. I had the hot hand and got my limit and the guys added 3 more that day. Used the same thing on Thursday.
