Fishing Report Update

In the new issue of the Department of Natural Resources' (DNR)'s Weekly Bulletin the "Weekly Fishing Report" is very popular.  This week the DNR has released an overall fishing report for major lakes and rivers in Michigan. fishing-report-map-updated_original This report is broken down into 5 regional categories:

"The Weekly Fishing Report is intended to give anglers an ”idea” of what is going on around the state. Updates for the report come from our DNR Fisheries Creel Clerks and field staff as well as DNR Conservation Officers working in in the field. General information when available can be found in the first paragraph for each section of the report.
For those looking for specific information on a certain body of water or port, it is safe to say if a certain species is being caught in some waters in the area, more than likely they are being caught in all waters in that section of the state that have that species. While we would love to include all waters and ports of the state that simply is not possible, especially with more than 11,000 inland lakes, the Great Lakes and thousands of miles of rivers and streams. Do you have a great spot to go fishing that you'd like to share?
Consider submitting it to the DNR for the Family Friendly Fishing Waters project! Revenue from fishing and hunting license sales supports DNR activities to enhance Michigan’s natural resources. These license sales also increase federal revenue to the State of Michigan for the management of these resources. Please help support Michigan’s abundant natural resources by purchasing a fishing and hunting license each year. You can purchase fishing licenses online 24-hours a day - when you do, please note you will receive your receipt and license via email!"
