BIG RAPIDS - The DNR reports windy conditions continue to hamper fishing efforts and very few have been out. Areas in the Upper Peninsula saw their first snow showers last weekend. Higher water levels and wave action have kept anglers off the piers due to dangerous conditions. Boat anglers have not been out on the inland lakes, the DNR said.
In Osceola County, "it's been pretty slow, not many guys are out with all the rain and wind," Brad Cox, of Big Country Bait and Tackle in LeRoy said. "I know there's a few guys still chasing salmon. But inland lakes is slow right now."
