Fishing in Michigan

Cast a line

Drop a line into 11,000 inland lakes or tens of thousands of miles of rivers and streams. Michigan is home to both champion anglers and weekend enthusiasts.

Off an old wooden dock. Knee deep in rushing waters. Or maybe right from the shore. That special place where we can always breathe deeply and appreciate just how simple and enjoyable life can be.

Wherever we choose, casting a line in the clear, fresh waters of Michigan lets us leave worries behind. Test your skills on the Great Lakes. Drop a line into 11,000 inland lakes or tens of thousands of miles of rivers and streams. Michigan is home to both champion anglers and weekend enthusiasts.

Home to the best fly-fishing in the country and 8 of the top 100 bass lakes in the U.S., Michigan is the ideal spot for your next fishing getaway. And with more than 150 species of fish to catch – from salmon and walleye to bass and lake trout – we’ll run out of day before we run out of fish.
