“The angler forgets most of the fish he catches, but he does not forget the streams and lakes in which they are caught.”
– Charles K. Fox
Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has some of the most legendary fishing in the world which inspired writers like Ernest Hemingway and Robert Traver (John D. Voelker). From perch and panfish to coho & chinook salmon and of course the lake, brown, brook and rainbow trout, the U.P. is an angler’s paradise.
Exploring the North’s tours & guided trips page has a lot of charter fishing and fishing guide businesses listed.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has an excellent fishing report for areas including Marquette, Little Bay De Noc, Big Bay De Noc, Au Train, Grand Marais, De Tour and Cedarville and Hessel and St. Ignace. You can get much more information (including how to order a fishing license online) from the DNR’s Fishing Page.
