Fishing: 02/28/2014

Ice fishing continues on all the inland lakes. Anglers are catching crappie, walleye, pike and bluegills.

Traverse City: Both bays are producing a few whitefish and lake trout.

Lake Cadillac: Was producing a good number of crappie for those fishing in water 12 feet or deeper. The fish can be along the bottom or just under the ice.

Lake Mitchell: Gave up some crappie and bluegills though the bluegill bite was not as strong. No word on pike spearing.

Portage Lake: Ice anglers are catching perch and pike. The better perch fishing is usually in 6 to 18 feet of water along the south end between the two camps.

Hamlin Lake: Was producing some bluegills, crappie and walleye.

Au Sable River: Fishing is good in the area’s that are accessible. Steelhead were caught on spawn, wax worms or small spoons. Rea Road, Foot Dam, High Banks, and Whirlpool were in good condition. The snow has been cleared but ice still remains and there is ice along the banks. The snowmobile trail is the easiest to travel however watch for snowmobile traffic as they may not be watching for you.

Lake Margrethe: Is producing some muskie for those spearing.
