Reports that I hear are that few salmon have rounded the tip of the penninsula and are headed into Grand Traverse Bay. Anglers are catching some, but not lots at this point. By the end of the month and into September the fishing will get pretty good. But for now the best salmon fishing is in Leland as you can see from the photos and report on this blog. There are a lot of kings hanging out at the island, first bank, and second bank feeding on bait. Every summer the king salmon seem to arrive at Leland and feed until the spawning urge moves them to the rivers where they were planted or were hatched. When the 4-year fish move on we usually have a big surge of three year fish that crowd the islands until through September.
Both charter boats and private boats are doing well. Come join the fun!
