Michigan DNR Weekly Fishing Report

Heavy snowfall has made things difficult in several parts of the state, but in other areas there has still been plenty of action.

Southeast Lower Peninsula

Overall: The inland lakes still had ice however there is a lot snow on top that will most likely turn slushy and make travel difficult.

Huron River:  The steelhead bite slowed but should pick back up with the warmer weather.

Southwest Lower Peninsula

St. Joseph River:  Froze up during the cold spell but warmer temperatures this week should help to open it up.  Anglers have caught steelhead during the warm ups.

Kalamazoo River:  Froze up but should open back up as well.  Look for steelhead and walleye up near the Allegan Dam.

Grand River at Grand Rapids:  Look for increased steelhead action with the warmer weather.  Steelhead and walleye anglers can usually be found below the 6th Street Dam.  Look for steelhead in the Rogue River as well.

Muskegon River:  Water levels were up some with the snow melt.  Those seeking steelhead have caught some nice fish on flies and streamers.

Northwest Lower Peninsula

Big Manistee River:   Steelhead fishing should pick up with the warmer weather especially up around Tippy Dam.  The river was frozen in the lower end.

Pere Marquette River:  Should also have some good steelhead action.
