Pere Marquette– low

Steelhead fishing has been very good in the lower river over the past couple weeks with black and pink streamers on the swing being very productive. However, much colder temperatures are expected this week which will likely freeze the lower river. While there are good numbers of steelhead in the middle and upper river, they are difficult to catch due to the low, extremely clear water. Matt Dunn

Manistee–  average

Steelhead fishing has been good on the Big Man below Tippy, though much of Northern Michigan above the PM is under a blizzard advisory through Monday, so be careful on your way to and from the river.
