Central Lower Peninsula Fishing Report – March 29th, 2013
Saginaw Bay Area
Ice was falling apart on Saginaw Bay last week, but a few anglers were walking out at the Bay City State Park and catching a fair number of perch and walleyes in 2 to 6 feet of water. Coyote hunting has been decent.

Ice fishing has been pretty good around Lake County, but fishing pressure has been light. Crappie fishing has been good on Big Star and Idlewild. Steelhead fishing has been good on the Pere Marquette River, with fresh fish moving into the river. Spawn and egg-pattern flies have produced good results.

Ice conditions were bad on Lake Huron last week. There was still safe ice in the harbor, and anglers there were catching good numbers of perch. Coyote hunting remains good, and a few crow hunters report success.

Fishing was been pretty good for whitefish and walleyes off the breakwall on the St. Clair River. Then an east wind pushed ice into the river and fishing ended. No word on smelt yet.
