Also on the wing and on the prowl for their chosen delicacies are fall migrants like the fall warblers. Remember that most birds do not sing in the fall to the extent that they do in the spring. That means birdwatchers need to rely more on keen eyesight and less on their hearing to locate and identify birds. Large flocks of bluebirds and blackbirds are beginning to gather. Bluebird concentrations tend to number about 10 to 20 birds, but blackbird flocks reach several hundred to more than one thousand birds.Door County - Salmon fishing in Door County this past week has been hit or miss but some anglers have been catching a good number of very large fish. The best action has been reported in 100-150 feet of water with most fish biting in the bottom half of the water column. Although anglers are catching salmon and trout on spoons and plugs, flasher/flies combos have been producing a lot more action. Smallmouth bass fishing has slowed down throughout Door County but anglers have been catching good numbers of fish. The best bite this past week was still being reported from 10-30 feet of water near offshore structure. The yellow perch fishing still remains good in the Sturgeon Bay area with most success occurring near deep weed lines. Walleye fishing in Door County along the Green Bay shoreline remains good and anglers are reporting excellent fishing. Jigging has been the best method for catching walleyes, but trolling has also brought success for many anglers. Towards the end of the week shore anglers have had success using stick baits and soft plastics in Sturgeon Bay.
