Grand River: Boat and wade anglers were catching steelhead below the 6th Street Dam.
Drifting spawn on bottom or under bobber was working best. The bite should get better with forecasted warmer weather.

Kalamazoo River: Boat anglers were targeting steelhead and were doing well before the colder weather. Drifting spawn on bottom or under a bobber worked well below the Allegan Dam and along shore. Boat anglers had some success between the dam and the M-89 Bridge using plugs and drifting spawn.

St. Joseph River:
 Boat anglers targeting steelhead were catching fish below the Berrien Springs Dam and in the lower river near I-94 Bridge. Plugs and back drifting spawn were working the best with some boats trolling upstream with plugs in slower current areas. The Benton Township Launch is closed.
