Michigan DNR Fishing Report for April 5, 2018

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.
