The Lake Erie/Detroit River/Lake St. Clair/St. Clair River system is outstanding, drawing anglers from across the country in spring and early summer.
You can enjoy your walleye fishing experience by shore or by boat:
When you come to Michigan to fish the world-renowned Detroit River walleye fishery, remember that this is an international boundary with Canada, so it’s recommended that you also purchase a Canadian fishing license, especially if you go out by boat.
Want to keep your boat on the water overnight? William G. Milliken State Park and Harbor is set to open early this year to accommodate the spring walleye run!
