Take some of the world’s best angling spots, dress them up in the beautiful colors of a northern Michigan autumn, add a touch of morning mist for mystery, and you’ve got a fall fishing day in Traverse City. And when you get tired of pulling in all those bass, walleye and rainbows, see if you’re strong enough to cast from the shore for a monster Pacific salmon.
