Anglers have been converging on the Rogue River in Rockford as the spring Steelhead run gets underway.
Dozens of anglers fished beneath the Rockford dam over the weekend as warmer temperatures and partly cloudy skies offered ideal conditions.
The Rogue and the Grand River in Grand Rapids are producing nice steelhead catches, the state Department of Natural Resources reports.
Steelhead activity is expected to pick up this week and continue into early May.
Those fishing Sunday reported success using live bait and artificial lures. The Rogue is running higher than normal due to snow melting in its watershed, which drains about 234 square miles in Kent and Newaygo counties.
The river was running at 5.7 feet on Monday; flood stage is 8 feet.
