Somebody just back of you while you are fishing is as bad as someone looking over your shoulder while you write a letter to your girl. ~Ernest Hemingway

Whether you want to fly fish, hire a charter, toss a line from a dock or bring your own fishing boat and spend the day on the lake, the Petoskey Area is a fisherman’s dream.

Walloon Lake yields bass and walleye. Petoskey’s Bear River plays host to brook trout, salmon and steelhead. Head to Lake Charlevoix in Boyne City for walleye, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, bluegills and rock bass. In Alanson, you can reel in largemouth bass, yellow perch, northern pike, walleye and bluegill.  And those who hit the colder waters of Little Traverse Bay will likely pull in trout, salmon, bass and steelhead.  Of course, there are also a plethora of lesser known lakes and streams around where you can try your luck.
