Lake Michigan Charter Fishing - June 2022
June is the best time to fish on Lake Michigan. Species of salmon and trout are more active in warm water, making them easier to catch as summer begins. Silver King Charters start the month in full swing of the Coho salmon bite. Between mid-May and the 3rd week of June is our highest catch rate of the season.
The fish we encounter in June include:
- Coho salmon
- Chinook salmon
- Lake trout
- Rainbow trout
Since the lake water has now warmed up, we can catch Coho in the 10 to 100 feet of water near the surface. Incredible action with double-digit catches or limits more times than not. Silver King Charters loves fishing Coho salmon and it is Captain Kurt's favorite to fish for.
I cannot stress this enough, if you want numbers mid-May through the third week of June is the time to be Charter fishing Lake Michigan. We are running flasher flies, orange dodgers, and medium flies and spoons during this month. June is when we start to land Chinook salmon, along with Lake trout and Rainbow Trout. There’s a fish for every flavor!
