Sault Ste. Marie Salmon & Trout Fishing

This area offers some very good fishing for salmon and trout.  Whether you are fishing in Lake Superior or the area rivers and streams, you can target chinook salmon, Atlantic salmon, pink salmon, steelhead, brown trout and brook trout.  There are plenty of fishing charters available here or you can go out on your own.

Sault Ste. Marie Walleye Fishing

The walleye fishing is very good in this area.  The St. Mary’s River offers very good fishing throughout the year, but the spring and fall are definitely prime time fishing for walleye. Munuscong Bay and Lake George are popular places to fish for walleye.  Big fish up to and above 30 inches are possible in this area.

Sault Ste. Marie Muskie Fishing

Muskie fishing can also be good in the Sault Ste. Marie area.  These fish roam the waters around here.  From Lake Superior to the St. Mary’s River and the bays and lakes that are in between Lake Superior and Lake Huron, there’s a lot of good water to fish for muskie. Even though there are so many places to get out of the wind, it’s still a big water fishery, which means big fish are available.  Muskie up to and above 30 pounds are caught here.

Sault Ste. Marie Northern Pike Fishing

St. Mary’s River and the bays and lakes that are in between Lake Superior and Lake Huron will definitely hold northern pike throughout the season.  Some anglers target them and some very big fish can be caught here too.

Sault Ste. Marie Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Smallmouth bass are available in this area.  Most anglers prefer to target them in the St. Mary’s River.  Spring and fall are the best times to fish for them, but you can catch them through the summer as well.  Some big fish are in this river system.

Sault Ste. Marie Perch Fishing

Perch roam the waters between Lake Superior and Lake Huron.  The St. Mary’s River is a good place to look for perch.  The fishing tends to be better in the spring and fall, but you can catch perch year-round here.  Many of the walleye anglers will usually catch some perch while targeting walleye on the St. Mary’s River.  Perch and walleye will use a lot of the same areas.  If you just want to target perch, find the weeds and there’s a good chance you’ll find better numbers of perch.
