With Lake Michigan’s clear blue waters and breathtaking shoreline, along with scores of pristine inland lakes just a short cast from excellent lodging, award-winning wineries, gourmet restaurants, and world-class golf courses, Traverse City is heralded by many as the finest fresh water sport fishery on the planet!
Smallmouth Bass, walleye, King and Coho Salmon, steelhead, Lake Trout, Brown Trout and Great Lakes Muskie are just a few types of fish swimming in our waters. And you know those trophy sized ones you see in pictures? You might just catch one here!
Fishing licenses are available online from the Department of Natural Resources.
