Michigan Fishing Report for January 20th, 2011
Pere Marquette– above average
We’re in the middle of another cold snap and the fishing is not so good right now. Shelf ice is building and flowing slush can be a problem. We look to have temperatures climbing back toward freezing early next week. Sunny afternoons are usually your best chance to catch fish in the winter. We are catching fish occasionally on slowly swung streamers, though indicator rigs with eggs and small nymphs are your best bet. Matt Dunn
Manistee– below average
Fishing has been OK on the Manistee below Tippy with indicator rigs being the most productive method.
Muskegon- below average
Steelhead fishing has been good with indicator rigs fishing egg and small nymph patterns. Swinging flies has been tough but will produce a fish here and there. Phil Cusey
