Central Lower Peninsula Fishing Report – January 30th, 2015

Saginaw Bay Area

Good shore ice was forming all around Lake Huron’s Saginaw Bay last week, and with cold weather in the forecast, quads and snowmobiles should be on the ice by now. Fair numbers of perch have been caught in  2 to 4 feet of water, and walleyes are starting to hit in 12- to 17-foot depths. A few walleyes have been caught in the Saginaw River, but anglers are urged to use extreme caution there. Coyote hunting is starting to heat up.

Grand Haven Area

There was up to 8 inches of ice on local waterways last week. Bluegills and crappies were hitting on Millhouse, Sterns, Lloyd’s, and Bruce’s bayous. Red spikes have produced good results. Pike fishing has been slow, but a few fish have been caught in Muskegon Lake. There was up to 10 inches of snow on the ground. Hunting pressure has been light for coyotes and geese.

Caseville Area

Perch and walleyes have been hitting in Lake Huron’s Wildfowl Bay at the mouth of Mud Creek. Perch were providing the best action and were hitting wax worms, wigglers, and minnows. Coyote hunting is starting to heat up, and rabbit hunting has been fair.

Port Huron

The St. Clair River has iced over and fishing there has come to a halt, but pike fishing has been good on the local ponds. Brown trout and steelhead are being caught through the ice in the harbors at Lexington and Port Sanilac. Rabbit hunting has been very good in St. Clair County, where was about 4 inches of snow on the ground last week. Coyote hunting has been pretty good, too.
