Now for your AM 1060 WHFB weekly fishing report. In southwest Michigan overall, some lakes still had enough soft ice to prevent boating, but were not safe to walk on. Gull Lake is open with ice in the protected coves and along the shoreline. In St. Joseph, boat anglers are getting out for some early brown trout, coho and steelhead action on Lake Michigan. The St. Joseph River had high water levels but the steelhead action was good. The Black River was producing the occasional steelhead. The Kalamazoo River was open and accessible by boat. Anglers have caught good numbers of steelhead and brown trout. Most fish are dark and appear to be winter holdovers. On the Rabbit River a couple steelhead were caught at the Hamilton Dam when drifting bright yarn flies or spawn.
