Re: Southwest Michigan Trout Streams
The Dowagiac is the best known, and probably the most credible. Supposedly, the Paw Paw and its tributaries have some trout, but I have not been impressed by my findings. I live here and I travel to do my fishing. You'd be much better off driving another 2-3 hours and get up around the Rogue, Muskegon, Manistee, PM, etc. There are a few other streams that are discussed in the Bedford and Linseman books, but it is pretty weak in SW Michigan overall.
