One angler had a little luck fishing from shore at Maple Lake last week. While casting a Rapala Countdown near the dam he hooked and landed a 5-pound, 10-ounce walleye.
Reports from the Kalamazoo River lately say it’s been a little slow. Water temps are hanging in the mid-thirties and it’s clearing up. There was a nice 10-pound brown trout caught below the Allegan Dam this past week. Boaters fishing the St. Joe River are having hit-and-miss days. One day anglers are getting 6 to 8 steelhead per trip, the next day they might only get 1. Brad’s Wigglers, Tadpollys and Storm Hot ‘N Tots have been good plugs to pull. Some fish are also hitting spawn.
Fishermen out on the St. Joe Pier are still picking off some whitefish, and Oslo Spinners are taking a few steelhead.
