Fishing report: GH anglers catching salmon in the channel

As the salmon action increases in the river systems, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources reminded anglers that snagging in Michigan waters is unlawful, contrary to websites and rumors that say the law has changed. The warning came Wednesday in the department's weekly fishing report. SOUTHWEST LOWER PENINSULA

Grand Haven: Salmon anglers are fishing between the channel and 300 feet of water. Those fishing just off the piers and the channel did best with white and chrome J-plugs with a red head. For those that want to avoid the crowds, try 40 to 50 feet down in 130 to 300 feet of water however deep water fishing is getting harder as the fish are on the move. Spoons and spin/fly combos are working, try yellow, green or blue. Pier anglers using alewife caught coho and a few chinook salmon. There is a lot of baitfish in the channel and around the piers. Some perch were caught in the 60 foot hole off the State Park.
