Michigan DNR Fishing Report for February 19, 2020

Southwest Lower Peninsula

St. Joseph River: Continues to produce a few walleye and steelhead. Most were fishing near the Berrien Springs Dam. Look for the steelhead bite with the warm-up.

Grand River near Grand Rapids: Continues to produce a few good runs of steelhead. Fish have been caught on jigs with wax worms, spawn and beads. Most are fishing near the 6th Street Dam and below. Walleye were caught off the wall and at Fulton Street. No big numbers, but steelhead still can be found in the Rogue River.

Muskegon River: Had decent steelhead fishing.

Northwest Lower Peninsula

Manistee River: Look for steelhead in the deeper holes during the cold snap. Brown trout fishing was slow below Tippy Dam. With the next thaw, steelhead fishing should really pick up.

Pere Marquette River: Was also producing steelhead for those using spawn, beads and wax worms.
