Southwest Lower Peninsula
St. Joseph River: Had a few anglers out targeting steelhead but the bite was slow once again. We need rain and warmer temperatures.
Grand River at Grand Rapids: Catch rates slowed but a few anglers were still finding some steelhead.
Muskegon River: Has some nice steelhead however cold water temperatures have slowed the bite. Try fishing the deeper holes until it warms back up.
Northwest Lower Peninsula
Overall: Snow and cold water temperatures are delaying the primary steelhead run. We need warm weather and rain as water levels were low and clear.
Betsie River: The steelhead bite slowed with the onset of snow and cold temperatures.
Big Manistee River: Has fresh fish but the bite has slowed with the cold weather. Target the deeper holes until it warms back up.
