Fishing Report 4-2-10

The rivers on the Minnesota Shore of Lake Superior are now open from Duluth to Canada.

From 3/29 through 4/1, water temperatures ranged from 38-43 degrees in the morning and 50-51 degrees in the afternoon on the Lower Shore. On the Middle Shore, water temperatures ranged from 34-36 degrees in the morning and 41-46 degrees in the afternoon. On the Upper Shore, water temperatures ranged from 33-34 degrees in the morning and 41-45 degrees in the afternoon.

From 3/29 through 4/1, interviewed anglers caught 29 Steelhead, 13 Kamloops, 5 Coho and 1 Brook Trout on the Lower Shore, 43 Steelhead, 5 Kamloops, and 2 Brook Trout on the Middle Shore, and 3 Steelhead and 7 Brook Trout on the Upper Shore. The run is peaking on the Lower Shore, and starting to peak on the Middle Shore. Water levels and clarity is fairly low and clear, and hopefully we get at least ½ inch of rain on Friday night and Saturday as predicted to bring in more fish.
