BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

From rough waters to the mostly iced-over Saginaw River.

People spent a warmer-than-normal winter day fishing in the channel near Independence Bridge in Bay City, with open water only yards away.

"There's about, I don't know, six inches out there, four to six inches out there. Maybe in a week there'll probably be more than that,” said fisherman Scott Bates

He said that since 7:30 Thursday morning, he caught only one fish.
