The following is this week’s fishing report from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources:
Ludington: Pier anglers and those surfcasting are catching steelhead.

Pere Marquette River: Rain has brought some fresh steelhead into the river.

Manistee: Pier anglers and those surfcasting are taking steelhead when the winds allow. Most are floating spawn or casting small spoons and spinners.

Manistee River: Rain helped to bring the water levels back up. Anglers will find a good number of steelhead in the river. Some are drifting spawn while others are casting small spoons or flies.

Bear River: Should have more steelhead moving up towards the dam. Try spawn, yarn, crawlers or a jig and wax worm.

Elk River: Is producing the occasional coho and some steelhead. Anglers are floating spawn or casting spoons and spinners.

Boardman River: Is producing steelhead between the mouth and Sabin Dam. Recent rain helped to bring more fish into the river system.

Frankfort: The steelhead action has been very good. Boat anglers are trolling the shoreline with orange spoons and pier anglers are using spawn.

Betsie River: Is producing a good number of steelhead.
