Rain, snow and extremely cold temperatures have kept most anglers at home. Those braving the elements have caught some walleye on the inland lakes. Pier anglers are getting steelhead, whitefish and the occasional walleye. Check out the waters that hold muskie and northern pike in your area as this is the time of year to catch both species.

Lake Erie: Walleye anglers were fishing off the Metro Park when the winds allowed. Those fishing the Metro Park Marina caught bluegills and small perch.
  • If you're planning on fishing any of the canals near Lake Erie Metro Park or Point Mouillee State Game Area you can get all of your bait & tackle needs met at  Bottom Line Bait & Tackle.
Huron River: Steelhead were just starting to move up into the river. No big numbers, but a few were caught up near the dam at Flat Rock when floating spawn.
Detroit River: Walleye anglers caught a few throughout the river. Fish were caught north or Wyandotte near Grassy Island and near the Ambassador Bridge when jigging. Try a brown Wyandotte worm or a blue ice minnow. Shore anglers caught perch and bluegill in the marinas, however they were sorting through a lot of small perch to get some keepers. Try minnows and wax worms.
Lake St. Clair: This is prime time for muskie fishing. Water temperatures are rapidly decreasing, and these fish go on a feeding frenzy. Fish can be found in the shallows and near the mouth of rivers and creeks. Walleye fishing improves as the weeds are dying off. Try bottom bouncers with a crawler harness in the early morning. For bluegill and perch, try the marinas.
  • For a more accurate report on Lake St. Clair I suggest reaching out to the people at Sportsmen's Direct  as their weekly LSC fishing report is usually far more in depth.  Phone: (586-741-6052)

St. Clair River: Walleye fishing continues to pick up throughout the entire river. A few limit catches were taken near Port Huron when fishing the Canadian side. Shore anglers casting off the wall at Port Huron caught a few after dark. Water clarity was highly variable with the wind and rain.
Saginaw River: Anglers continued to catch walleye in the lower river near the Independence Bridge. Most were boat anglers jigging a twister tail with a minnow. A few were caught by boat and shore anglers up near the Veterans Bridge.
