Fishing Report

Each day brings new adventures on the Gitche Gumee. There are many species of fish to go after, from lake trout to rainbow trout (also called steelhead), to chinook (king) and coho salmon. We also have trophy walleye and muskie to chase after in the world’s largest freshwater lake.

Feel free to give us a call and we’ll help you pick the best dates for your trip.
