September brings some of the best fishing of the season, and this year appears to be no different. The past week has seen some very good fishing out of Algoma. Even after Monday's big blow, it looked like it would take the fish several days to calm down, but Tuesday morning they got with it and fishing from 100' to 220' with an in and out pattern delivered a two person, mixed bag, limit in short order.
Trollers have also been working the harbor entrance for the staging kings and brown trout with some very good success. One captain noted that it is probably the best staging king fishing that he has seen in the past 10 years! This is helped by the steady rain patterns that we have seen the past couple weeks. River flows are up and the river mouth has seen lots of dirty water pouring our and bringing in the staging kings and brown trout. Pier anglers have also been scoring on some really nice fish.
Deeper water action has been mixed between spoons and flash/fly combos. I have seen the active fish higher in the water column 25' to 60' down. Yellow edge and Musk melon R & R Spoons were studs on a 40' rigger and 5 color leadcore. Chrome/green, white/bubble gum, and white flashers with frog, super frog and mistake flies have worked very well on slide divers and weighted board set-ups.
Shallow water action has seen J-plugs, Rebels and magnum spoons taking mature fish. Pier anglers have had great action casting silver/green and silver spoons. Reports have been coming in from anglers venturing upstream and finding salmon all the way to the dam.
Some of the best fishing of the year is here, so take advantage of some great fall fishing!
