2/14/2019 Southwest Lower Peninsula, Michigan DNR Fishing Report

Southwest Lower Peninsula

To access the original Michigan DNR fishing Report: Click Here! 

Overall: The inland lakes were becoming fishable again however anglers should use caution and test the ice ahead of you. Bluegill and crappie were caught in the morning and evening on jigs and wax worms or spikes in 10 to 20 feet.
Kalamazoo County: Ice conditions on the inland lakes were still pretty good, but the thickness was variable. Caution needs to be used on lakes with inlets as snowmelt has caused rivers and tributaries to flow higher thus worsening the ice conditions where they flow into.

Kalamazoo River: The steelhead action has slowed.
Swan Lake: In Allegan County was producing some limit catches of bluegill. Both bluegills and crappie were taken on teardrops with wax worms or spikes. A few pike were taken on tip-ups.

Miner Lake: In Allegan County reported fair to good bluegill action.

Murray Lake: was producing a good number of bluegills.
Lake Macatawa: The yellow perch action has been very good at times.

Muskegon Lake: Had snow cover for easier travel. Be sure to stay away from the mouth of the river and channel. Perch have been caught everywhere but the bigger ones seems to be in 50 to 55 feet. Those fishing the north end off Second Street were still getting some perch and walleye, but most were too small. A few pike were still being caught near Fisherman’s Landing and Heritage Landing.
