Please tell me that what I read in the weekly DNR fishing report this morning was BS! Tell me that I just imagined that it said steel was being caught at the dam. Or better yet, tell it's true so I can go fishing
JimLeadfoot said:I work near the river and haven't seen any indication in the places I have looked. As of lately, I've been too busy to be fishing anyway, but if you're already in Lansing, it would probably be worth your time to hit Moore's river park. That is such a large (cooled) pool/run that I'm confident there is at least 1 steelhead in there no matter what month it is. Plus, you can get into some Walleye there - nobody should be disappointed in "accidentally" catching a Walleye while steelie fishing.
In recent years, there just haven't really been any significant numbers of fish (Salmonoids) in the Lansing area, which I attribute to low water levels. With things the way they have been lately, this early break in the spring combined with the meltoff might be good.
