HBAAA Fishing Reports
The typical summer water temperature profile has developed in Lake Huron off of Rogers City. The recent surface temperature was 71 degrees but the thermocline in the mid 50 F degrees is shifting regularly from about 30 to 80 feet down depending on the wind speed and direction. North winds push the warmer water down while east and south winds bring cold water up.
More Chinook salmon are beginning to be caught along with an occasional Atlantic salmon and walleye. In addition, some steelhead are showing up. Lake trout are being caught regularly in water as deep as 90 to 110 feet. Even though the water temperature at this depth is often in the low to mid 40 F degrees, the lake trout have been cooperating and are feeding on gobies.
