Sept 17th 2015 Grand Haven Mi - From Field Reporter Bud - Fished on the pier this morning and caught four coho, the bait was gizzard shad and shrimp, a good time to be out, the fish are running the river pretty good and a stacking up at the sixth street dam in downtown G.R. !
Sept 17th 2015 Grand Haven Mi Fishing Report
Sept 12th 2014 -Adult kings and cohos showed up around the pier head and fish were caught all the way up to the power plant by shore and boat anglers. A good setup is a white Paddle with a purple beaded Mirage fly behind a Dipsy set 30' behind the boat. Pearl and black dot Tomics and the Fuzzy Bear Educator spoon were also beat up by the angry fish.  
Aug 28th 2014 - There was good action for kings in the 8 to 18 pound range have provided the action and there has been plenty of that. A few Cohos, Lake Trout and Steelhead are mixed in the catch. Green Spin Doctors like the Fat Nancy, Live Wire and Seneca Special with green flies like Pickled Sunshine, Green Bubbles and Seaweed have all been very effective. In fact, almost any green spinnie and green fly combination have caught fish. Now for the bad news. As the week progressed, the water has warmed significantly and by Thursday, in 80 fow, the temperature was 68 degrees from top to bottom. Consequently, the fish have gradually moved out and down. As a result, by late week, most fish were found outside 120 fow and down from 80 to 130 feet. Riggers set from 75 to 120 feet down along with 250 to 450 coppers and divers back 180 to 240 feet have all taken fish. Fish can be found in bands from 120 to 240.  
Aug 20th 2014 - Perch, steelhead and a few kings are showing up near the piers fishing with plenty of orange near the surface and a few plugs like the chrome/red headed J-plug. Minnows, wax worms and shrimp chunks for the perch. Fishing inside has been better with alewives than it has for boat anglers. Trollers are out to 100 - 125 fow, choose orange when selecting your baits with the top on the top 50' of water being the most productive. Slicks are plentiful so don't spend too much time on one that's not producing.
 
Aug 8th 2014 - Trollers are catching salmon 40 to 85 feet down in 80 to 130 feet. Steelhead were caught on orange spoons in the top 30 feet. Salmon were caught on blue and green spoons and flies or white paddles, spinnies and flies. Yellow, blue green or purple meat rigs also caught fish. Pier fishing slowed as water temperatures were back up to 65 degrees or more.  
July 21st 2014 - S trong north winds have brought cold water close to shore. Surface temps are in the 50's with the temps in the low 40's only 20 feet down. The result has been that fish have scattered but the good news is that while numbers have generally not increased, the quality of the fish caught has. Kings to 22 pounds and Steelhead to 14 pounds have been caught. Fish have been caught from 30 fow out to 120. Most have been caught in the top 30 feet with a few coming deep on paddles and flies. Blue and white and green and white fly combinations have been productive deep. Bright spinnies and flies on high divers have also caught fish. Top producers in spoons have been predominately orange although our top producer has been a modified caramel dolphin Stinger in the Stingray size.  
July 8th 2014 - Trollers are fishing from 70 - 240 FOW and the story was the same, slow. Start in 45 or 50 FOW early in the morning and hunt for bait pods. Go with glow baits early and toss in some Mixed Veggies, Orange Crush, Hit Man and Orange Killer patterned Spoons. Spinnies and flies and a meat rig down as the kings have been starting to key in on these the past couple weeks. White paddles and a Pickled Sunshine or Mirage fly pattern are good bets.  
Aug- 15th - 2013 Boat anglers are fishing between the end of the pier and 120 feet of water. Most are fishing the top 50 feet with meat rigs that glow on divers or plugs. Hot colors were glow, white, green or yellow. Pier and boat anglers managed to catch a few perch. Boats fishing off the north pier were just off the mud line.
