Meetings set for fisheries regulation

LANSING — Fisheries Division has announced public meetings to be held throughout the state. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss local fisheries management and regulation proposals. Modifications to northern pike and muskellunge regulations were adopted for the 2013 fishing season and a presentation summarizing these changes will be given at each meeting.

Crystal Lake: Continues to produce smelt.

Manistee River: More anglers are turning their attention to steelhead fishing. The better action was near the mouth. Water temperatures are still on the cold side so anglers were fishing the deeper holes.

Lake Cadillac: Ice fishing continues however the shoreline ice is starting to deteriorate. Those fishing have caught crappie and bluegill but catch rates were hit-or-miss.

Lake Mitchell: Still has ice fishing. Be careful along the shoreline. Those fishing in the coves have caught a few fish.

Pere Marquette River: Fresh steelhead are moving into the river system. Anglers could see a big push of fish in the next week or so as temperatures and water levels slowly rise.
