Surface temperatures range from 36 to 39 degrees.|
Open water fishing is nearing the end of the season as water
temperatures drop towards freezing and nearshore areas begin to form
skim ice. Over the weekend of December 18 walleye were caught off of
piers from Huron to Cleveland, but freezing temperatures will also end
the pier fishing soon.
Steelhead (December 14, 2004)
Most rivers and streams are in moderate to poor shape: lower stream
reaches with low flow have started to lock up with the latest cold snap.
Smaller streams have begun to show side ice and slushy flows. More snow
and cold is forecast through this weekend. Active fish can be found from
the beaches to the upper stream reaches.
