Good steelhead fishing continues around the state for those fishing the rivers or trolling in the Great Lakes, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources said in its weekly fishing report.

There have been no reports of any smelt runs around the state. It will take some warm spring days along with rain in the evenings to trigger the fish. Smelt usually run from mid-April to early-May. Prolonged cold temperatures will delay the runs as ideal stream temperatures are normally between 42 and 45 degrees. Anglers should review the Netting Regulations on page 10 in the 2004 Michigan Fishing Guide before heading out.

Strong winds have kept most anglers off Lake Erie, the DNR said in its report. There have been reports of perch caught, but anglers have been catching bluegills and crappie in the cuts and canals.

Anglers also have been doing well near the marinas. Steelhead can be found in the Huron River near Flat Rock. Good numbers of suckers have started to show up in the river as well.
