Pere Marquette River

The Pere Marquette River is one of the finest trout, steelhead, and salmon fisheries in the Great Lakes region. It is a tributary of Lake Michigan located on its east shore. The regular trout season on this river is superb for resident browns. Acrobatic steelhead enter the creek from Lake Michigan in early fall and provide excellent fly fishing throughout the winter till early spring. Salmon enter the creek in late summer and provide good angling through mid-fall. Quality hatches of mayflies, caddis, and stoneflies exist which provide tremendous dry fly angling for the river’s resident trout.
