Fishing the St. Mary's River
Fishing on the St. Mary's River is a unique experience that is one of Michigan's top fishing destinations. This 75-mile waterway is connected to Lake Superior and the North Channel of Lake Huron. Many species can be caught throughout this river, but some of the top catches are Walleye, Northern Pike, Muskellunge, Salmon, and Steelhead.
Walleye are abundant throughout the river and hot spots include Munuscong Bay, the deep waters around Neebish and Sugar Islands. Trolling and deep water jigging often brings great success.
Northern Pike and Muskellunge are abundant due to the habitat and prey fish species. Best time to fishing these species are the middle of June through July.
Salmon and Steelhead make their spawning trip up the St. Mary's anytime between May and Oct. The tactic of choice is fly fishing.
Other Species include: Whitefish & small-mouth bass
