Southeast Lower Peninsula Fishing Report

Lake Erie: Perch anglers were fishing off the docks at the Metro Park Marina.

Huron River: Is still producing steelhead. Some boat anglers are back trolling with Hot-n-Tots.

Detroit River: Had a few boat anglers perch fishing near the Cross Dike.

Lake St. Clair: Has open water for the most part. There was a little skim ice in the canals and some of the marinas but nothing close to fishable. There has been a lot of muskie fishing activity over the last week as water clarity has improved. Muskie season closes on December 15th however the end of the season is usually when the biggest fish of the year are caught.

St. Clair River: Shore anglers have caught steelhead and brown trout off the wall at Port Huron. A few whitefish were also mixed in. With the warmer temperatures, there are no ice flows coming down the river so fishing conditions are good.

Saginaw Bay: Had some anglers fishing the first ice near shore however anglers be warned, the ice is not very thick.

Southeast Lower Peninsula Fishing Report

Lake Erie: Had few anglers but a lot of duck hunters. Those fishing did manage to catch some perch. Try fishing the marinas for panfish.

Huron River: Still has steelhead for the taking. Shore anglers usually target the waters off Huroc Park. Try a jig and wax worm, crank baits, spoons or small plugs.

Lake St. Clair: The shoreline ice and the flow ice melted. The canals and marinas had open water but it was muddy. The boat ramps were ice free but the docks have been pulled at the DNR ramps. Not much fishing activity, but panfish should be in the canals and marinas. Those heading out for muskie fishing should bring waders for launching their boats.

St. Clair River: Was dirty for much of the past week due to windy conditions. There have been a few reports of good walleye and steelhead fishing for shore anglers at Port Huron. The ramps were ice free but not many boat anglers were out.

Harbor Beach: Still had the docks in at the boat launch however ice flow was starting to build around the docks. One of the docks in the marina collapsed so use caution.

Port Austin: The docks at the boat launch have been pulled from the water. Flow ice was visible but no safe ice.

Saginaw River: Rumor has it anglers are doing well for walleye. Shore anglers were casting while boat anglers were vertical jigging.
