Southwest Lower Peninsula

More anglers were out on the ice; however, fluctuating temperatures by the weekend will deteriorate the ice once again. Extreme caution still needs to be used, as one group of anglers went through the ice in Allegan County.   
St. Joseph River: Continues to produce a few walleye and steelhead. Most were fishing near the Berrien Springs Dam. Look for the steelhead bite with the warm-up. 
Note: At any time you can view the Berrien Springs fish ladder cam by go to this link or following their youtube channel. Subscribing to their channel helps fund the fish ladder cam.

Kalamazoo County: Some lakes had ice fishing, while others had variable ice thickness. Extreme caution needs to be used. 

Grand River near Grand Rapids: Continues to produce a few good runs of steelhead.  Fish have been caught on jigs with wax worms, spawn and beads. Most are fishing near the 6th Street Dam and below. Walleye were caught off the wall and at Fulton Street. No big numbers, but steelhead still can be found in the Rogue River. 
Grand River near Lansing: Few anglers have been out. Water levels near the North Lansing Dam were slightly high but fishable.

Kent County: Anglers were getting some bluegills on Murray Lake; however, caution needs to be used, especially on the north end. 

Muskegon Lake: Small perch were caught in 8 to 12 feet off Cottage Grove. The pike action was good off Heritage Landing and Fisherman’s Landing. Bluegills were caught in the northwest corner off the state park. 

Muskegon River: Had decent steelhead fishing.
