Lake St Clair Fishing Reports Jan 2018

Detroit River:  Has a lot of ice coming down the river.  Areas where anglers were ice fishing will most likely not be safe at this time.  The Coast Guard has been out and breaking up the ice.   

Lake St. Clair:  Yellow perch fishing has been good throughout the lake including the areas off Selfridge, Fair Haven and Anchor Bay.  Most fish were caught in six to 10 feet.

Perch fishing continues to be excellent across the lake.  A good number of fish were taken near Cotton Road and the St. Clair Metro Park.  Most were using a gold spoon with a red bead tipped with a minnow.  Those targeting panfish had some luck nearshore and in the canals.  Some have taken walleye in eight to 12 feet.  Those spearing pike were taking smaller fish.

Detroit River:  Had some shelf ice coming down.   

Lake St. Clair:  Still had ice however the rain and warm temperatures allowed some areas with current and run-off to open up.  Fishing reports have not been quite as consistent as previous weeks.  Some were having trouble locating the schools of big perch.  Catch rates for panfish in the canals and nearshore areas did increase some.
