Northwest Lower Peninsula Fishing Report

Anglers are ice fishing on some lakes. Those heading out are reminded to use extreme caution and be sure to use a spud to check the ice as you go. The rivers are open at fishable levels and have steelhead just not many anglers are fishing for them.

Torch Lake: Those spear fishing did well for whitefish.

Elk River: Was producing steelhead at the dam.

Manistee Lake: In Kalkaska County had ice anglers. Foot travel was best as the ice was not safe for machines. Most of the fish caught were on the small side.

Betsie River: Is producing some steelhead.

Lake Cadillac: Has ice. Anglers have done well when spearing for pike. Try jigs and wax worms for panfish. Bring your cleats and be sure to check the ice first.

Lake Mitchell: Ice fishing has started. Those heading out caught mostly small pike and panfish. The ice had no snow so be sure to bring your cleats.

Lake Missaukee: Ice fishing has started but not all the ice is safe. Most anglers were seen on the northeast side of the lake.

Manistee River: Water levels were fishable once again. The river still has a good number of steelhead and other trout.

Ludington: Pier and surf anglers were still catching steelhead.

Pere Marquette River: Water levels were good and the river still has a fair to good number of steelhead.
