Oscoda Fishing Report: Anglers found good numbers of lake trout straight out from the river in 100-150 feet. Most were on the bottom but a few were suspended about halfway. Coho and steel head were caught in the top 50-75 feet. Try spoons, spin-glo’s and meat rigs. A few walleye suspended 25 feet down in about 10 feet were caught but most were hitting stick baits in about 30-40 feet. Pier anglers caught small mouth bass, walleye, and freshwater drum when casting crank baits or still fishing with crawlers. A few yellow perch and rock bass were caught on perch or crappie rigs. Fishing out on Van Ettan Lake is bringing in good size perch biting on worms and minnows. A few walleye on night crawlers. Out on Cedar Lake bluegill and perch using minnows and worms for the bait.
AuSable River: A few walleye were caught when drifting crawlers or leeches through the deeper holes in Oscoda and up near the trestle bridge in the late evening but many were too small. Large and small mouth bass or pike were taken on crank baits. Bluegill and rock bass were taken on crawlers.
