Fish Report

Little Bay De Noc: Very cold temperatures have firmed the ice in the northern Bay but many dangers still exist. Anglers are mostly walking out and with warm temperatures forecasted by the end of the week and into next week, even walking may be dangerous. Walleye season closed on March 15. Perch anglers were reporting good numbers of smaller fish caught between Butler Island and the Third Reef. Bigger fish were still being caught in 22 to 30 feet with minnows or wigglers.

Keweenaw Bay: Had some ice again off the Falls River and at the head of the bay. There have been no anglers fishing off the Baraga side. Fishing was fair for those jigging spoons tipped with a minnow or spawn. Tip-ups with shiners have also taken a few fish. Anglers caught mostly coho, splake and brown trout. Extreme caution needs to be used as this ice has only been there for a few days and a northeast wind could take it out quickly.

Marquette: Ice has moved back into the harbors however it is not stable. Some caught coho at the bubblers. Fishing pressure slowed on the Carp River due to ice but some were still trying for steelhead.
