The Detroit River is famous for its annual walleye run in the spring. So many walleye move into this river to spawn that anglers catch lots of walleye to go along with so many trophy-sized fish. The big females that come in the river to spawn will be some of the biggest fish caught every year for most anglers. The river also has good fishing for other species of fish too. Since it is connected to Lake Erie and Lake Saint Clair, you will find a variety of fish here. Smallmouth bass, muskie, white bass. perch and more can be caught here.
