Technically it is illegal to dip smelt now but the CO's are allowed to use their own discretion. I talked to a couple CO's here on the east end and they had no intention of writing tickets for dipping early. They were just checking for licenses. They would have had a field day because their was a ton of people out dipping. And yes the smelt were running. I don't know how they enforce the law on the west side though.

Great site by the way. I enjoyed reading the other smelt thread.  laugh()

Smelt dipping is open statewide
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 30, 2012
Contact: Gary Whelan, 517-373-6948 or Ed Golder, 517-335-3014

Smelt dipping is open statewide
With the warm spring weather, anglers should be aware that smelt dipping is open on all waters at this time and anglers can take 2 gallons daily. Smelt can be taken by hook/line, hand nets or dip nets.
“There is some confusion as there are two Fisheries Orders that appear to conflict with each other and this situation was just brought to our attention,” said Gary Whelan, regulatory affairs supervisor for the Department of Natural Resources' Fisheries Division. “We will ensure that our orders are consistent for next year’s fishing and anglers should take advantage of our smelt fishing opportunities at this time.”
For more information on fishing and where the smelt are running in Michigan, visit www.michigan.gov/fishing.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural and cultural resources for current and future generations. For more information, go to www.michigan.gov/dnr.
