Fishing in Detroit

If you’re planning to go fishing in Detroit, you’re in for a treat. Famed for its auto industry, you'll be surprised to find that this city has plenty to offer in terms of fishing as well. With plenty of guides and productive spots to choose from, you’ll be able to enjoy a fun day of fishing, and catch yourself a delicious meal for the day!

You can target a wide range of species, including Walleye, Musky, Pike, Yellow Perch, Smallmouth Bass, and Rainbow Trout. Sturgeon inhabit the Detroit River, and you can even find some Chinook, Coho, and Atlantic Salmon in Lake Erie.

Local guides offer trips tailored to all types of anglers. If you’re just getting started, a half day is a great way to get introduced to the water. You’ll spend 4–5 hours fishing, giving plenty of time to snag yourself some savory fish. Longer trips are recommended for more seasoned anglers that want to maximize their time on the water and cover more fishing grounds.

You’ll have the chance to explore multiple rivers and lakes out of Detroit. On the city’s namesake river, Dingell Park is a great launching point with access to both Lake Erie and Lake St. Clair. The Rogue River is also a great fishing creek, stocked with smaller fish, making it a great spot for kids. With all these options and more, you’ve got to check it out for yourself!

Rules & Regulations

All anglers above the age of 17 must have a valid fishing license. If you’re targeting Sturgeon, you must register your harvest within 24 hours. Many popular species have both size and bag limits, so it’s always best to stay up to date on the latest regulations. If you’re not sure about something, you can always ask your experienced guide for help.
