Fall is prime fishing season in Traverse City! As the water begins to cool, our fish get more active and start feeding hungrily to fatten themselves up for the winter. That translates into lots of fishing excitement here.
The big event is the annual Pacific salmon run, when thousands of enormous Chinook and Coho salmon make their way upriver. Fall is also a great time to catch big walleye, smallmouth and rainbows, especially in the area's many inland lakes.
