Saint Ignace






Inland lakes in the western half of the Upper Peninsula are frozen. Extreme caution needs to be used on any and all ice. Lake Gogebic will offer perch and panfish on the north end. Lac Vieux Desert flowage offers good panfish opportunities in the winter. In the southern sections of the Upper Peninsula, ice thickness varies, and some lakes still had areas with open water. Pretty much all the lakes on the east end are ice-covered; however, some lakes have better ice than others. Extreme caution needs to be used. Snowfall from M-28 south was about 6-8 inches. 

Teal Lake: In Marquette County, is offering some early perch fishing. The occasional walleye also has been caught.   

Little Bay De Noc: Anglers are just starting to head out, although they are staying in close as most were only about a quarter mile from shore. Use extreme caution.    

Muskallonge Lake: In Luce County, had perch anglers as well as those looking for walleye and pike. Some of the inland lakes south of Munising also had angler activity. 

Manistique Lakes: Have seen quite a bit of activity, mainly for yellow perch and other panfish. 

Two Hearted River: Has steelhead and normal water levels for this time of year. Expect heavier snowpack in this part of Luce County.
