The river mouth is very narrow and constantly moving. If you start out and get grounded and there is any kind of surf, it could be very difficult. I would motor from Ontonagon.

Got out for two days over Memorial weekend. Had a blast, caught a lot lost even more. Got a couple bonus browns too. Took half a day to find clear water but once we did fishing was great. Mostly males run is definitely on the way out but still fish to be had for the next couple days I would guess.

Late report but we got a few coho, laker and brown trolling cranks on boards in 10- 24 fow outside of the Ontonagon River over Memerial Day weekend. Saw lots of fish stacked up in the river on hte depthfinder but foolishly didn't take the time to work them (whiners in the boat.) Guys were getting waldos trolling in the river but we didn't try it. Did get some small smallies and a small burbot upstream on jig/minnows one evening. Hopefuly will get back up soon.

Not looking to steal someones fishing spot just would appreciate getting pointed in a fishable direction, thanks.
