Learn where the fish are biting and where fish have been stocked within the parks.

Rivers still jammed, creeks still frozen.

With the sun shining and the warmer temperatures, it's slowly starting to feel like Spring.  Unfortunately the local rivers and creeks are jammed with ice chunks or still frozen.  A few reports came in of some success in the Grand River, mostly from anglers hiking in to small areas of open water.  Beaty Landing is still reported to have some open water and is fishable.  Use caution and remember no ice should be considered safe!
