11/06/2019 Northwest Lower Peninsula Michigan Fishing Report

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.

Overall: All the rivers were running high. There should be some steelhead in area rivers however very few anglers have been out.
Crooked Lake: In Emmet County, a few anglers were looking for perch.
Petoskey: Some anglers were targeting steelhead off the clock dock; however, the last report was no fish were caught. Those shore fishing just past the mouth of the Bear River caught a couple lake trout that had be released as the season is closed.
Platte River: The egg-take operation in the lower river is finished. Staff plan to remove the lower weir on November 14.

Manistee: When they could get out, pier anglers continued to target steelhead when using fresh spawn. A few whitefish were hitting on salmon eggs or wax worms.
Manistee River: Flow is a bit high and steelhead fishing was fair. Water temperatures below Tippy Dam were in the mid to high 40’s. Anglers caught steelhead, brown trout and even the odd salmon on flies, beads, spinners and crank baits. Those wading above and below the coffer dam caught a few fish.
