Fishing

We are proud to boast the most coast with our fresh bays, but our inland water is also spectacular featuring sparkling streams and lakes. Trophy sized fish are waiting for you underneath the water!

Fishing Guides

Walleye | Salmon | Bass | Ice Fishing 

Carefully managed and protected throughout the years, the Bays de Noc have emerged as one of the best fresh water fishing locations in the United States. The area has undergone an aggressive fish planting in the past three years. More than 20,000 have been planted to sustain the fishery. Professional fishing tournaments such as the Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit, the In-Fisherman Professional Walleye Trail, the FLW Walleye League Championships, the FLW Bass Series and B.A.S.S. Tournament Series, all have held professional competitions on the Bays. 

Multiple species can be caught from boats or from the shore of the Bays, inland lakes, or from the various rivers and streams that fill Lake Michigan. Accessing our abundant waters is as easy as pulling up to one of the boat launches scattered throughout the county. Permits are required and are available at the launch sites. Please be aware that weather conditions can change quickly on the big water. Make sure you are aware of weather conditions and have the proper safety equipment.
