Fishing: 12/13/2012


LANSING — Steelhead fishing should be good this week with the warmer temperatures. Those looking for ice will have to wait a bit longer however this is a good time to get your ice fishing gear ready to go.

Betsie River: Should have good steelhead fishing this week.

Manistee River: Is producing more steelhead and should continue through the week. Chrome colored fish are being caught mainly on streamers in both the Little Manistee and the Big Manistee Rivers. Anglers are reminded that the Little Manistee River closes to fishing on December 31st and will reopen on April 1st.

Pere Marquette River: Has good steelhead fishing for those drifting eggs, nymphs or streamers. A few were hitting on spawn but most were taken by those fly fishing.

Pentwater: Pier anglers were catching some whitefish.
