Sanford Dam fishing has picked -up



Wixom Lake: Anglers are catching crappie, pike and gills with waxworms, minnows, and crawlers. Bass have been good and pike are just starting to bite on pike suckers.

Sanford Lake: Anglers are catching crappie, pike and Bass, with some seing Northern Muskie chasing their lures

Sanford Dam: Anglers are catching crappie, pike and catfish on minnows, and crawlers. There is good water flow and cooler water should bring walleye into the river below the dam

Saginaw Bay: Anglers did find a few walleye in 14 feet off the Saganing Bar and out near Buoys 1 & 2 but they are still working hard to find fish. One boat trolling off Finn Road caught a couple walleye. A few perch were caught south of Pinconning off Gambil’s Marina and near the mouth of the Quanicassee River however be ready to sort out the small ones. Fishing was slow from Quanicassee to Caseville. Goose and teal hunters outnumbered fishing boats.

Saginaw River: Shore anglers in the lower river caught catfish, freshwater drum and a few bass.
