The Preseason

A few conservation notes at the bottom of this report…

As much of the Midwest battles floods, most of the Au Sable and Manistee are normal, or even low, considering the snow is gone and the ground is thawing.  It’s too early to say it’s an early spring.  But the

Product Review: Scientific Anglers Freightliner Skagit Intermediate Spey Line

Weekly Fishing Report from Mich DNR

Very few updates have come in this week as few anglers were out.  Rain and warm temperatures have many rivers at or above flood stage.  Moving ice may also cause additional flooding.  Anglers should avoid the rivers until water levels recede.  Many inland lakes will no longer be safe.

Southwest Lower Peninsula

St. Joseph River:  Had extremely high water levels and no one was fishing.  It could be a week or so before the water recedes to fishable levels.  Look for steelhead up near the dams once it does.

Kalamazoo River:  Had high water levels.

Grand River at Grand Rapids:  High water levels and a strong current will make fishing very difficult.

Muskegon River:  Had ice jams resulting in rapidly rising water near Rogers Dam and near Croton.

Northeast Lower Peninsula

Rifle River:  Was under a flood warning.  High water levels and a strong current are not ideal fishing conditions.

Northwest Lower Peninsula

Big Manistee River:   Had reports of steelhead being caught.

Pere Marquette River:  Also had reports of steelhead being caught after the rain and warmer temperatures.

Lookin’ good

The entire Midwest has been warm, and it’s going to stay that way.  We’re just wrapping up our vacation so wifi and cell have been pretty spotty but the above pic somehow made it to me.  That’s a dandy trout!  Apparently Grayling had a pretty good ice storm too.  But

River Is On The Rise

The last couple of weeks the weather finally felt like it was going to change over to  Spring.   I’m hoping it’s for good and not just another tease.  Yesterday morning I even heard the song of the “Cheeseburger Bird” while putting the boat in.  While the weather felt like
