Open Water - A rare site this winter

Open Water – A rare site this winter

“Manistee River: Steelhead can be found up near Tippy Dam. Below High Bridge the river is iced up and not fishable.

Grand Traverse Bay: Has fishable ice so anglers are heading out for whitefish.

Green Lake: Continues to produce smelt for those fishing near the Betsie River or the Music Camp at night. Try a teardrop or hali jig with a wax worm.

Crystal Lake: In Benzie County has decent smelt fishing at night in 45 to 50 feet of water. Use Hali jigs with wax worms. Some have caught lake trout just off the bottom. Look for perch along the weeds in 25 to 35 feet of water. Try tear drops tipped with a minnow or wiggler.

Lake Cadillac: Anglers are catching pike and crappie.

Lake Mitchell: Is another good lake for pike, crappie and bluegill.

Lake Missaukee: Is producing a fair to good number of panfish for those using minnows and spikes.

Pere Marquette River: Has steelhead. Those wading have caught steelhead and the occasional brown trout.” Michigan DNR Weekly Fishing Report
