Reports from the Kalamazoo River say steelhead showed up right below the Allegan Dam this past week. Spoons and spinners were taking some 8-pounders.
Inland ice fishermen are finding a lot of ice to drill through! Gull Lake has as much as 30 inches in many spots on the lake.
Anglers getting out in this frigid weather are finding some panfish. Three Mile Lake and Scott Lake have been giving up some good bluegills. North Lake has been good for bluegills and a few northern pike have been caught there lately too. Twin Lakes has also been pretty good for pike fishing. One angler speared a 48-inch musky through the ice on Austin Lake this week.
One angler this week pulled a 16-inch crappie through the ice out on Cedar Lake but that was his only fish. That’s not too bad!
