It is far easier for me to do reports and post pics etc…. on facebook then try and put on this website. As a result if you want the most recent info of anything I post please visit the Walleye King fishing guide on facebook and like my page. Anytime I post it should show up in your stream. I have also put a facebook link at the top of this site so all you have to do is click on it and it will take you to my facebook page also. Thank you for your interest in my Walleye fishing guide services on Saginaw Bay & Saginaw River.
New! I’m now offering fishing tours for Coho Salmon on the Platte River in Michigan. Starting in late August and running through September, we will be fishing that beautiful river! I’ll be posting more info on my facebook page for this as well.
Are you planning to fish the Platte River for Coho Salmon? Check the latest Platte River fishing reports to get water conditions like; temperature, clarity, and visibility.
Most of that information, however, doesn’t catch the essence of it. The Platte River river really doesn’t fluctuate as most rivers do. It is a shallow, slow-moving lazy river like ripples you see looking in a pool. The ideal times are just before light and just after. That is why our tours typically start at 5 am and run until around 9 am. The weather doesn’t matter much. It can be hot and bright blue skies, to rainy or overcast, we will fill our quota of Coho.
“A fresh rain in early September always helps to move new fish up the river though.”
Fish species present in the river include Coho Salmon, Steelhead, and Trout. The fishing season for these fish is year-round but the Coho salmon runs and our guided fishing tours for the Platte River start in late August. They run through September and because it’s the end of summer/start of fall, it can be hot t-shirt weather to cold crisp mornings. There is nothing like it when that morning fog is hanging just above the water like steam which makes it just beautiful!
Before you go!
There are some rules and regulations when it comes to fishing in any state. Anyone over the age of 17 in the state of Michigan is required to have a fishing license to fish. The price is about $26 for resident and $76 for nonresident, you can get a 24-hour license for $10 for residents and a 72-hour license for $30.
Also, you can research the best baiting tips for the Coho Salmon in the Platte River, however, we will make sure you have what you need. We fish in the best stretch of water. This is the only open section below the lowest weir. Check the fishing restrictions and other regulations placed by the DNR.
