Under the authority of Section 48701(o), as amended, being Sections 324.48701(o) of the Michigan Compiled Laws, the Director of the Department of Natural Resources on November 8, 2007, order that for a period of five years the streams and portions of streams in the list which follows are hereby designated as trout streams.The following lists—excerpted from FO-210.08—include all streams, or portions of streams, currently designated as trout streams in Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren counties. These three counties encompass all of southwestern Michigan, as defined by the Southwestern Michigan Tourist Council.
