ABOUT SAGINAW BAY WALLEYE FISHING...
Thousands of fishermen and pleasure boaters are attracted to the many excellent
marinas, campgrounds and recreational facilities that are available around the Saginaw
Bay. Saginaw Bay is considered one of the most productive and fertile fisheries of the
Great Lakes. Saginaw Bay is a large, relatively shallow basin along the western shore of
Lake Huron that has become one of the nation's top walleye fisheries. A combination of
national walleye tournaments and the outdoor media have focused attention on the
excellent fishing. After spawning, walleye and perch move downstream and back into the
bay. During summer, as the inner bay warms, walleye begin a slow movement toward the
cooler water of the outer bay. In late fall, movement of pre-spawn walleye occurs up the
Saginaw River. Fingerling plantings in the late 1970's are given credit for re-establishing
the Saginaw Bay walleye population. Currently walleye and yellow perch fishing dominate
the fishery and are by far the most commonly sought-after fishing species. Recent
surveys have shown that walleye growth rates are some of the highest in the Midwest.
The studies also revealed walleye can reach the legal minimum size of 15 inches after
just two growing seasons with most requiring three seasons to grow into the 17-to-18 inch
category. Call The FishFly Charter's experienced Captain Jay Gallagher to book your

ABOUT LAKE MICHIGAN SALMON FISHING...
Lake Michigan salmon fishing provides some of the best salmon fishing activity. Salmon
fishing has been a major part of the sport fishing industry in Michigan since the
introduction of several salmon species into the Great Lakes system in the 1960s to control
alewife populations. Salmon fishing is strong up and down Lake Michigan - from St.
Joseph to Frankfort. The months of July, August and September are generally the best for
Lake Michigan Salmon fishing. And if you are seeking the mighty King Salmon this is the
time to come, when they are in a full-scale feeding mode. Sizable Lake Trout can also be
found in abundance during July, August and September. The weather generally
cooperates this time of the year - and the salmon fishing is great. King Salmon and
Steelhead are often the target species, but on many days all Lake Michigan salmon
species (King, Chinook, Steelhead, Brown Trout and Coho) can be found schooling
together. The size of Lake Michigan's salmon population can range from 5-30 pounds - or
more! Call The FishFly Charter's experienced Captain Jay Gallagher to book your Lake
