Gone fishin’

Upper Peninsula

Heavy snows throughout the western Upper Peninsula warrant extreme caution when going out on any lakes that have frozen. On the east end, ice is just beginning to form on most lakes and waterbodies.

• Lake Gogebic: Anglers were ice fishing Bergland Bay on the north end of the lake however heavy snows have caused water to push up on the ice causing some safety issues. Anglers will need to use extreme caution especially with the onset of heavy snow in the area.

• Manistique River: Some anglers were still taking some steelhead in the lower river.
