Designated Trout Streams of Cass County, Michigan

Fisheries Order (FO) 210.08 lists Designated Trout Streams for the State of Michigan (.pdf), to wit:
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.

Unless otherwise described, the location description listed after the stream name indicates the downstream limit of the trout designation. All of the stream and its tributaries, unless excepted, from that point upstream are designated trout waters [emphases added].
