This report was submitted to us by a local fisherman. After a couple hours fishing on a very cold morning December 27, he landed a 30 inch, 10 pound steelhead. The fishing started at daybreak on the river flats near Pere Marquette Lake. The air temperature was around 25 degrees with a cold northwest wind 10-15mph. Flat fish lures were used with no luck, then put a spawn bag on a set line and got the only fish of the day.
