Fishing: 02/21/2014

Grand Traverse Bay: The West Bay was producing good catches of lake trout. Whitefish were caught in both bays.

Lake Leelanau: Those using tip-ups have caught some nice pike.

Lake Cadillac: Crappie anglers are fishing off Kenwood Park. Those targeting walleye have actually caught some nice crappie on tip-ups. For pike and perch, try the southeast side of the lake.

Lake Mitchell: Is finally producing some bluegills. The better fishing was at the mouth of Big Cove.

Manistee River: Steelhead can be found in the pockets and pools. Most anglers are now using minnow patterns. Below High Bridge the river is iced up and not fishable.

Pere Marquette River: Is producing steelhead and some brown trout. Look for the fast water and try to get away from the shelf ice.

Au Sable River: Rea Road and Whirlpool were open enough to launch however you will need four-wheel drive. Steelhead are in the holes but ice on the banks will make it difficult to get to them. The gas line was productive for those using small spoons, wax worms, spikes or spawn. Be sure to watch for snowmobile traffic on the trails. Many are out riding because conditions are excellent.
