St. Joseph:Pier anglers are catching a few coho and brown trout. Fishing is spotty, but should improve. Most are using spawn on the bottom. Boat anglers haven't been able to get out because of ice. Most of it is gone now but there are still some large ice flows in the area so boaters should use caution.

St. Joseph River: Steelhead movement increased with the recent rain. Fish are being caught near the dam at Berrien Springs.

Southwest Lower Peninsula Fishing Report

The lakes in Southwest Michigan had open water. Any ice out there would not be safe. Thanks to the rain and above normal temperatures, it is going to be a while before anglers here are ice fishing.

St. Joseph River: Has steelhead in the system but the numbers are slightly below average. The better fishing is usually below Berrien Springs. Try spawn, wax worms or plugs.

Kalamazoo River: Is still producing some steelhead. Like the St. Joseph, the number of fish is slightly below average this year. The better fishing this time of year is usually below the Allegan Dam.

Grand River near Grand Rapids: Is still producing some steelhead. A few were caught off the wall at the Post Office when using a white jig tipped with a wax worm. Near Fulton Street, anglers were back bouncing with spawn bags. The occasional walleye was caught on bucktail jigs and white twister tails.

Grand River near Lansing: Was still producing some pike and walleye for those fishing below the dams. Shiners seem to work better than sucker minnows. No steelhead to report in Lansing however fish were caught near Portland. Try spawn, beads and small spinners.

Muskegon River: Recent rain should not affect the river too much. Anglers are still catching some steelhead and brown trout. Many are drifting streamers, plugs, small spinners or spoons. Blue and silver were a good color.
