DNR Weekly Fishing Report and Fishing Tips

Posted on: November 14th, 2019 by webdesign No Comments

There are no specific reports for our listening area this week. Statewide however, snow, coupled with extremely cold temperatures, have pretty much slowed fishing activity. Those brave enough to face the elements will find walleye, perch, whitefish and steelhead fishing opportunities.If you decide to target steelhead on Michigan’s rivers while in a boat, there are two options you can turn to. Consider offering bait underneath a centerpin style reel. The line will come off smoothly, allowing for float-suspended baits to work long distances downstream, plus it offers drag-free drifts. If you’re not confident on a centerpin style or you’re a novice angler, try a level-wind reel. It allows you to drop the float behind the boat and wait for the strike. It will take care of the hard work while reeling in your catch by guiding the line on properly.All anglers 17 years of age and older are required to have a fishing license.
